We Got Mission Momentum
I'm Putting This Link In The Lead Because It Has AWESOME Ideas.
"IT'S NOT OUR FAULT, BUT IT'S OUR PROBLEM."
For example, the changing demographics of our city, the less than stellar economy, and the rise of Charter schools are not our fault, but they're our problem. A child coming to our school in the morning after watching tv until midnight, waking up to her parents violently arguing and not eating breakfast is not a teacher's fault, but it's his problem.
Ultimately, fault is irrelevant when it comes to solving problems and getting things done.
Some Data Shared At NCEA
- Eighty-five percent of Catholic school graduates attend four-year universities, compared to 38 percent from public schools.
- Catholic schools served nearly 24,000 fewer students than last year although 14 new schools opened across the country.
- Closings and consolidations led to a total loss of 43 schools this academic year.

These will be handed out on Wednesday. Rosie will be out the next few days, so please make Virginia's life considerably easier by getting these to her by tonight via email.
To clarify: there should one child for both months, February and March. So just one student each grade level per award. For example:
4th Grade Student of Month: Araceli Rangel
4th Grade Self-Discipline: Davian Guevara
4th Grade Growth Mindset: Enrique Ramirez
