Principal's Message

I had a blast guest teaching last week and to work with a team that believes in teamwork and supporting one another whenever needed is so refreshing! Thank you so much for exhibiting the core value of Teamwork as well as being flexible. This week I’m excited to see how we can accomplish the next goal of AgMo and actually respond to the data we collect on our trackers! I also hope you take some time to rest and reflect on your day off Monday and if you have or had any family members who were in the Armed Forces we thank them for their service!

School Wide Focus

Priority #2 - No Opt Out Academics

This week we are focusing on how we respond to the data collected on our trackers after your laps. Keep in mind the following when you are ready to respond to your data:

  • Compare trackers with your partner teacher after you collect data during the IP

  • Scholars will put the pencils down and track your screen

  • Deliver the decision from your doc cam so scholar can see the work

Deans of Academics

Weekly Survey: Please take our weekly survey! Link to survey. Shout Out to Mrs. Beasley and Mrs. Neal who have taken both surveys! You have both earned a jeans day next week! :)

Progress Monitoring: Please progress monitor Tier 3 scholars this week.

Aggressive Monitoring: You can find AgMo documents and resources in this folder.

Dean of Culture

Positive Framing

We are continuing our focus on the positive framing! Let’s give glows for the behavior you want to see and while you are doing your lap narrate the positive behaviors. Keep in the mind the information shared last week!
