AP's are asked to read Chapters 1 & 2 by August 14. In order to be prepared to discuss the readings at the AP meeting, please consider the following:

  • In what ways would you like to be more efficient in your work?

Anchors of Appreciation

I encourage you each to take on the challenge in the link below (#LeadLAP Monday). At the beginning of the year, it is a great time to build or rebuild relationships with teachers. One way to do this is to show authentic appreciation for the hard work that the educators all around us contribute each and every day. How do you show your appreciation for others' work?


Edcamp is an unconference for educators by educators. Join us at SUH on Saturday, August 26 from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM for a great learning experience! Check out the video from last year's inaugural event below.
