TEAM HUDDLES

I've enjoyed those who have met me for Team Huddles this week. Lots of great discussion and positive things happening at ORE. Just a reminder that this is an optional activity for everyone but it provides an opportunity for me to hear directly from you on a regular basis and for me to get to spend a few uninterrupted minutes with you. So...I'll be in your area of the building at 7:25. I'll stay there until 7:35 in hopes of getting to visit with you! We will have 3 standing questions...


1. Something good that has happened this school year

2. Something you struggle with this week or this year

3. One suggestion you have to improve our school


Schedule: (Since I"m out a few days next week at trainings, we are going to start first of November for round 2).

SUGGESTION BOX

Okay, it was mentioned to me that the link no longer worked. I've updated it so if you try it and it doesn't go to the "Suggestion Box," please let me know. Just a reminder that suggestions can be made anonymously if you don't want your identify known. If you have suggestions and/or concerns throughout the year, this is one place you will have to let administration know.
