The Leopard- December 10th

Are you ready to TACKLE the CHALLENGE?

3 Focuses for High Reliability

Reminder Regarding Expectations Re-Set


Just a reminder for your planning that the first week after we return is critical for resetting and re-establishing classroom norms and expectations.

Our expectation is that each staff member spend some intentional time with each class revisiting your co-created norms and goals. Some questions you might post for discussion and implementation as you tweak your classroom goals and norms:

1. In your opinion, do our co-created class norms meet our needs?

2. How might we improve our class norms/expectations to make the spring semester even better?

3. What behaviors do you see as a class that you would like for others to extinguish?

4. What goals should our class set for the remainder of the year?

5. What goals do you have for the Spring?

Please let Lara or I know when each of you are having this "reset" conversation of our so we can support you.

Remember that we want to use our 7 habits as the foundation for this reflect on their thinking and behavior. Allyson also has TONS of great resources for you as you prepare for the first week back.
