Last week, we asked that every team sit down together and establish norms for your meetings. We have started to receive these norms from a few teams and look forward to receiving them all by Friday. We will start with our team norms and then will move into team leaders meeting norms, department meeting norms, faculty meeting norms, etc... The idea is to start with a group that you know really well and is small in size and then move to the larger, more diverse groups. Norm setting can be more challenging when the group expands. Please don't shy away from setting up the procedures for what to do when people aren't following the norms. We are all professionals here :>) Thanks for working on this important task as we further PLC work in our school!
During our Monday Leadership Team Meeting, we talked about the following items:
Silent lunch as a consequence for students
- Increasing our literacy and research expectations for students to prepare them for rigorous high school course work
- Fire drill review/ Safety update
- Wellness- Upgrade our state healthy schools rating level through the morning walking program and activities
- Student outdoor lunch activities coming soon
- Ipad rollout
Your grade level administrators and counselors may touch on the items above as it pertains to your grade level or area of instruction.
