"By celebrating what's right with the world, we find the energy to fix what's wrong." -Dewitt Jones

Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend. I am excited that we will have cooler weather this week. I love fall it is my favorite season, and I also love not sweating to death in the car line.

Picture day and the kickoff for our cookie dough fundraiser is Friday. Please remind your families about picture day. We have a staff meeting on Wednesday I will send out an agenda Tuesday. I will need you to bring your TESS rubric and be ready to discuss domain 3: instruction. We will also be scheduling parent/teacher conferences at the end of the meeting, so make sure you bring your conference sheets.

PGPs will be due on October 7th in honor of Mr. Henderson's birthday. When you are writing your PGP think about your area of growth on your evaluations last year. You will want to focus on that area. Your goal needs to be for domain 2 or 3, and you only need one goal. If you need help thinking through your PGP I would be happy to help.

We will be reviewing our 1st quarter SMART goals at our October 28th staff meeting. Please make sure your team is having conversations about how you are measuring that goal and looking at data to see if you have met your goal. Everyone on your team will need to be ready to discuss your SMART goal at the staff meeting.
