As long as we make excuses, we will justify staying where we are. There are no excuses for settling for mediocrity.
On the Edge of Culture
It has been wonderful to watch everyone work collaboratively at providing opportunities for student leadership. Watching the sophomore class sponsors work has been such a joy. They are very well organized and so supportive of one another. As they work to divide the labor and make the complex, simple, I see culture being constructed before my very eyes. Smeltzer and Mccloskey creating the ballots, Tovar and Humphries hosting the interest meeting Mrs. Gilb and Mr. Feimster organizing the work. All of their work and collaboration result in more opportunities for our students to develop as dynamic contributors to our society.
Another example of culture building is Mrs. Jones pushing her students to excellence through high expectations and consequently pushing Caleb Rose to earn a 1st Chair in state competition for the first time in the history of our high school. Or Mr. Jones going the extra mile to build his program by meeting consistently with the middle school band directors and making every opportunity for their students to collaborate with ours. Lot's of foundational pieces being instituted to solidify a culture of high expectations, a culture of excellence! What does your classroom culture look like? Is there high level questioning, rich student dialogue, rigorous work that challenges and pushes students to the next level of performance?
