La Vega Reads
From Ms. Grigsby:
Thank you to those of you who have helped me get this program off the ground! I have about 75 books to give away already! If you feel moved to help support my goal of getting books into the homes of our La Vega students, please visit my Amazon list, or send books to the high school that were purchased elsewhere. (Make sure to include my name on the envelope - Julie Grigsby.). Donations of gently used books are welcome as well. Thank you! (I am trying to keep books within two big categories - Children's and Young Adult)
If you or one of your students could benefit from the resource below please use or share. We had some faculty and students use this resource last year.

Opportunity Culture Corner
We are in full swing with Opportunity Culture at LVHS. The message below highlighted strengths that our Public Impact Team recognized. Thank you all for working to ensure that we are successful.
Please let your team know if you need anything.
Strengths Identified: * By focusing on all four content areas in year 1, La Vega High School is on track to achieve 75% reach by excellent teachers who have produced prior high learning growth. This ensures that by year 3 all students will be able to benefit from La Vega HS’ OC model. * Each Assistant Principal is assigned a content for the entire school which corresponds with each MCLs’ content area. Assistant Principals use this assignment to conduct one-on-one meetings with MCLs to provide on the job development and support. * MCLs are showing ownership of team data as evidenced by the English MCL leading data analysis of the first assessment. This is a result of school leadership matching MCLs’ accountability to the entire team’s data.
Please take 3rd Period attendance!!!! This is crucial because of funding.
