The One Thing Rule

I am learning that deciding each morning what the one thing I must focus on that day helps keep me on track. The one thing that we all need to be focused on right now is completing the Canvas Challenge. All certified staff have been sent an invitation. If you have not started, please begin today. The first three challenges may be frustrating, but by the third you'll be saying "I've got this! I can do this and this and maybe this." Teachers in 4th and 5th will start right away using with students.

All other certified staff will start right away communicating, collaborating, and learning with teams and as a whole learning community. All calendars, communications, events, deadlines, tasks, forms, and shared links will be place in Canvas.

If you have any problems, email Or Both agreed to help through the challenge. is the link to start your Canvas challenge.

We must use our data to paint a true picture of where we are.

With the data I have been given, we can identify our areas of growth, our students to target, and reflect on our practices. I look forward to having good conversations about observations, notices, and plans with each teacher.
