Principal's Pen

Dear Scott Staff,

We have been out and about starting observations this week. WOW! You are doing so many great things. We are truly impressed with the thinking, questioning, and clarity you all are seeking in your planning AND with your students. We can't say enough good things about you. One of the articles we read this week was about growing the capacity of our campus. It talked about a campus transformation and the impact the Reading Recovery specialist had on that campus. The Reading Recovery specialist realized that as part of a PLC community, she had to change her mindset about her job. She could use her knowledge and expertise with the 4 children she worked with every day, or she could empower her campus teachers by sharing her knowledge with them so they could in turn use that expertise to reach hundred of students. Powerful! Our charge is to grow each other, to share our knowledge, and build each other up. We want to encourage you to share with us the great things you are seeing among yourselves and your students.

Have a great weekend,

Paige and Leanne
