  • Lunch - Please continue to have kids grouped by homeroom in the Cafe line. It is a HUGE help to Nora and the Cafe ladies.

Speaking of Great Expectations...

During the first two weeks of school, it's all about relationships! For Great Expectations we will focus on establishing these six Practices:

  • Model desired behaviors and attitudes as stated in our Eight Expectations for Living and our Life Principles

  • Establish a non-threatening environment - mistakes are seen as opportunities to learn and grow

  • Establish a positive and caring environment - give kind looks, kind words, and kind touch, and discipline with dignity and logic

  • Recite a school, class, or personal creed daily
  • Guarantee success for all learners by focusing on learner growth
  • "Teach on your feet" - utilize proximity and engage learners personally

Collaborative Team Time

Our CTT calendar starts Monday! A comprehensive schedule may be found in the CTT portion of the Wilson Schoology Course.

Jordan, Andi, and I have created an agenda that we will lead you through for our first round. There is nothing for you to prepare! Teams will meet in Andi's new room (C102) at 7:30 on their designated team day.

Early Childhood - Holcombe is working with each campus to create a calendar of PreK Collaborative Team days!

Safety & Security

NaviGate Prepared- As we start our drills for this year, we will be using a platform called NaviGate Prepared. I will do a brief training on NaviGate at our first faculty meeting. In the meantime, click below for the directions on how to download the app and set up your account. We are hoping to be able to try the app out for our first fire drill!

Standard Response Protocol - An SRP badge card is being placed in your box. Please add it to your employee badge clip, so that you have it at all times on campus.

Safety and Security Folders

    • If you are new to Wilson, I will be placing a folder in your box that has red/green cards that you will use in case NaviGate is not working during drills or a crisis. On the back of the cards, there is a place for your class roster. Please go ahead and fill that out.

    • Returning teachers if you need green/red cards, let me know!


Navigate App

You may download this on your phone and/or iPad.
