Acton Weekly Update: 3/9/18

FTCSC Hedgehog Focus

1. We accept LEARNING as the fundamental purpose of our district and therefore are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on learning.

2. We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose. We cultivate a COLLABORATIVE CULTURE through development of high-performing teams.

3. We assess our effectiveness on the basis of RESULTS rather than intentions. Individuals, teams, and schools seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.

Nuts and Bolts

Please add to your newsletters:

1. Egg Hunt: The Acton Lodge will will hosting it's annual Easter egg hunt at the school on March 31st from 1-3PM. Please add this information to your newsletters for families!
