Faculty and Staff Shout-Outs!

COMMENT: I was really worried coming back from the break that must students would be sluggish and not ready to get busy (with so much more in the school year). I was pleasantly surprised that my students kept up with my pass and are ready to tackle the rest of the school year. I am going to keep up the pace and the momentum going so they don't slack.

COMMENT: I would personally like to thank Mechelle & Sarah for helping me with a situation I had on Friday. I appreciate the fact that they are avaliable & willing to jump in when nedded. Thanks ladies! :)

Where is Everyone This Week?

Monday - School Closed

Tuesday - Assessment Training (Oliver AM and Jackie PM)

Wednesday -Principals' Meeting (Jackie)

Thursday - Everyone on Campus!

Friday - Everyone on Campus!

Answer the Question, Please!

Question: Are we planning anything as a school for the 100th day of school. It would be fun if the whole school was in on the fun. Maybe the PTA could get involve and help us decorate and do something fun.

Answer: This is something we can discuss during Leadership Meeting on Jan. 28th.

Question: What or who is the "mess" that Vicki Harper referred to that she is here to "clean up"?

Answer: As a PSP, she was light heartedly joking. Perhaps, she used the wrong choice of words; however, she is here to assist us in streamlining our processes and procedures:

  • How do we create common assessments?
  • Are PLCs meetings productive?
  • Is data always at the forefront of discussions?
  • Are students first?

We were provided the opportunity along with Friendship, Whitley Road and Bluebonnet. Let us not get boggled down with words, but look at the bigger picture: what are we working toward? What is our goal?

Vicky Harper is a very easy person to talk to. If you would like to ask what the TAIS process is about or any other question, please feel free. I am sure she would love to hear from you.
