Personal Mission Statement
Goal: I will find effective ways in which to "sharpen my saw" by eating right, self-reflecting, and exercising.
Weekly Summary Report
Highlights for the week:
*Visited Mount Holly Elementary School (Rock Hill) with a group from BSES to see the utilization of CANVAS in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. (See below) My "take away" - all team members on board and working together for the good of the group and for kids!
*Met with Kim (and Brantley) to review surveys and begin working on personnel placements at BSES, HES, and SCE for next year. (FYI...all 3 boards are in Kim's office behind her door, if you would like to see them at any time throughout the process).
*Elementary Principals data meeting with Kim - Kim and Tammy shared the information gained from MGSD on a recent visit to see their data conferences. As a group, we really liked the transparency, consistency, and accountability of the data...even more impressive was the empowerment given to the lead teachers in the accountability and collaborative areas.
*ISS and OSS appeal decisions reviewed, discussed, and communicated.
*I met with Nicole Brown out at the school site to discuss some information related to school safety in and around the school (arrival, dismissal, sidewalks, gateways to/from neighboring subdivisions, etc.) Following the meeting, Gerald and Trevin drove me out to the school for a few pictures...loved seeing some beautiful green grass already!! And the stone work looks wonderful, too! (See below)
*The VS representative from Charlotte brought us 5 VS chairs (various sizes), so while at Hendrix on Thursday I had students help me with sizing for each grade level during lunch time. I will do the same on Monday when I go to BSES. This will help us determine the number of each size we will need to order; which will then help us with the ordering of the coordinating VS tables and student desks.
*I enjoyed some social time with HES at Barnes & Noble and Chick-fil-A Spirit Night on Thursday evening. The Dance Club performed at B&N and did a really nice job! (See below)
Next week I intend to work on:
- Attendance Zone Parent Letter (draft)
- Personnel Placement Letter (draft)
- Personnel Placement Reveal (format)
- Jenny & Kim - FF&E Meeting
