Get Involved!

We need staff input!


  1. CORE Team/School Improvement - Next meeting is Wednesday, December 16th (4th hour)
  2. Advisory Planning - need reps from each department -sign up - we can follow model from last year, create new items, must include Vocab WoW, Digital Literacy, test prep, reading/writing, SSR
  3. Media/District Contact(s)
  4. Bulletin Boards throughout the building (Sign up with Heidi)

* All of these items would provide excellent artifacts for Domain 4 - Professional Responsibility!

College Going Culture and Dual Enrollment!

Reminder - if you haven't already made your poster, please create and post.

I would like to start the year with each staff member making a sign that describes your college experience and degrees (see my sample to the right), and posting it on or near your classroom door. I know that many of you are very creative so let's see what you've got!
