Summer Updates for Families
Message from Principal Brooks
Relaxation & Rejuvenation = Revived :~)
The summer has created a time to relax and travel. In fact, twelve staff members attended an AVID Summer Institute, in Orlando. AVID Institute provided tailored Communities of Practice focused on Leading Change for Educational Equity, Building Relational Capacity, Developing educator and student agency, and Creating Engaging and Rigorous Classrooms. We spent our mornings in different conference and met educators from all over the world, then in the afternoon, we came together to work on Toquam's Articulation Plan. The evening was the most restful as we floated in the Lazy River bumping into each other, laughing and bonding with our colleagues.
Happy summer! 🍉

What's Happening in Our Building 🏫
The contractors are working tirelessly every day. We will have a better idea of when staff could enter the building by the first week of August. Stay Tuned!
Students will be able to use our Media Center to check out books this school year. We are soliciting parent participation to cover our circulation desk 😝.
So far, so good, we are reclaiming our KINDERGARTEN area. We look forward to having our staff meetings and Scholastic Book Fair back in this area.

A Principal's Life (in Summer!) 😎
My high school class reunion was in Montego Bay. We reminisced, laughed, and enjoyed each others company. In fact, we took mid-day naps under the coconut trees..
Just what we needed after a full day of planning, strategizing and preparing for this school year!
Toquam Staff in Orlando at AVID Summer Institute
AVID Summer Institute was amazing! We learned so much with their fabulous presenters who came well prepared with lessons for us to implement immediately.
