Titan Family

Dear Titans:


Thank you for your attention this week during our faculty meeting. Congratulations again to Rick Meads and Letty Paquian for the You Light Up Eastlake Award. You both rock! We are moving forward with our WASC preparations and you will be an important part of the equation. We look forward to showing off our school. Keep shining as we move on to Week 5! Lots of great things happening on our site. Also, I wanted to give a hearty thank you to our district personnel who came out to work on various projects with our school. Here are some key reminders for the week:


A. WASC. Please make sure you fill out the Action Group Sign-up Form. Everyone will serve on a WASC team. In addition, please fill out this WASC PLC Survey.


B. Budgets. I am going to send off a proposed budget to our department chairs this Monday.


C. Safe School Ambassadors. I am interested in bringing this anti-bullying program and assembly to our school. I have worked with them for the last several years and have found it to be amazing. It fits nicely with our school mission and goals for culture and climate. We will need some teacher volunteers. I guarantee that it will be one of the best training you have been to! Let me know if you are interested. Here is information about the program.


D. SLT. Our SLT will meet this Tuesday to plan for school initiatives that support our professional growth. They will be focusing on plc/learning teams. Your SLT members will be presenting future district initiatives at a future date.


E. Observation Schedule. We are committed to getting out to classes. Here is the schedule of our observations. Please hold us accountable. We have agreed to ask students What they are learning, How they will show they have learned and Why it's important. We start this week!


F. Titan Way Pins Update. We are ordering 10 pins for each teacher to give out as they please. The students really want the pin, so let's make it happen. Here is a LINK to report the student, so that I may call them out and give them a reward and call their parent. We will give out the pins at the next faculty meeting. So, give out your first pin this month! Add as needed.



Have a great week Titans. Can't wait to see you all in action. Go Titans!



Keep Shining,


Ricardo Cooke, Ed.D.

Titan and SEL Connection Challenge

Each week, I will post a simple challenge. Some of you do these challenges already. I invite you to take a moment to mix it up for yourself and get even more connected to our school community.


This week's Titan Challenge: This week I will support a student at an extra-curricular event and brag about the student during class.

Self-Care Challenge

I care deeply about the staff. We give so much of ourselves to our students and parents. Take time for balance and reflection.


Self-Care Challenge: Great breathing technique when you just need to re-focus! Trace your hand... as you go up the curve of a finger, breathe in. As you go down, breathe out. Go slowly and do this with both hands. Really helps.

Titans in Action!

They Got Rhythm and a Great Teacher!
