Message from Ms. Robins

Hey lovely Beasley staff!


Many of you keep stopping me saying you still want to give me money for the gift for Ms. Bertoncini. I am going to see her Friday and I'm going to give her the last bit. If you still wanted to donate, please give me your donation by Thursday!

Thanks to all!
Ms. Robins

CIWP 2016-2018 Priorities

After analyzing the results from the PPLC Staff Survey, we intend to give a greater focus on the areas that the data revealed to be the most important. To begin, Discipline and Safety/Order will be our CIWP #1 priority. When our CIWP team meets our conversations will be based upon what action areas that can be made to help improve these areas with intention of improving student growth on our school's SQRP performance. We intend to prioritize 5 areas in total. The other top area of need is Professional Learning.
