ACE Season 2: Week 5

Principal's Message

We are in the crux of our professional goal setting conferences and these are the best meetings, ever! Teachers received TEI scorecards last week which should guide the goal setting for this week. Hearing teachers talk about their goals for personal growth using the TEI rubric, focused on student achievement and student success is truly inspiring! I think this is my favorite time of the year! :)

I found this on Twitter this weekend and I thought, "How fitting!" The principal'ship' is just that..a SHIP! We need members of the team (Not just the Captain and Co-Captain) to make the vision happen. Your leadership MATTERS! Thank you for DOING the WORK, WORKING THE VISION and IMPLEMENTING THE PLAN. That's what keeps our ship afloat.

Have a Super Fantastic Week of teaching and Learning!
