Update on Dr. Jungmann's Visit

Dr. Jungmann visited Pershing last week. He met with me and Mr. Groves on Tuesday, January 5th. We were able to share all the great things you are doing for students. We shared our building indicators and our focus of ERP. We also were able to share our dreams for additional resources, updated facilities and flexibility to take risks that will benefit students. Dr. Jungmann encouraged me to give you the opportunity to get in each other classrooms and see what is going on across the hall and throughout the building. I will be sharing a strategy we will use during February that will allow this to happen.

Because we spent the majority of our time on Tuesday discussing what is happening at Pershing we ran out of time to visit classrooms. Thankfully Dr. Jungmann came back on Thursday and walked through the building with Dr. Steiger (the director of Secondary Learning). At our learning session/faculty meeting on Tuesday I will share with you Dr. Jungmann's observations. I will also share an overview of the recent MS Leadership Meeting.

In regards to the MS Leadership meeting---below is a link that the MS teachers may utilize to give their input regarding the current MS schedule. Please let me know what is good about the current schedule; what can be improved in the current schedule; and then share your dreams for the ultimate schedule.
