"All Together Adamson--Excellence In Action"

A Note From Your Executive Director...

Principal Team,

Our first six weeks grading period will end in 2 weeks. As you reflect on the first month of school, ask yourself these questions:

  • Has my school environment settled in such a way that supports my vision for the campus?
  • Does the daily classroom instruction reflect my expectation of rigor and purpose?
  • Is my campus ready for the first common assessment? Do we have a plan in place that we will use to analyze data in a timely manner?
  • What changes/revisions will be added during the second six weeks related to our instructional program and school climate?

As the campus principal, you set the tone and lead the way for your teachers and staff. I charge each of you to "inspect what you expect" through frequent classroom observations and review of student progress on a weekly basis. Thinking Differently & Acting Coureagously begins with you!

Here's to a great week of teaching and learning!

KUDOS to all AFP principals for preparing so well for leveling. Friday's meeting went very smoothly thanks to your pre-planning with HCM.
