Week of December 7-11, 2015

What is going on in Panther Nation

Coming this week to Cowart Hero Headquarters: planning half days for 2nd-5th grade with an instructional calendar and common assessment focus. The end of the week will mark the 9th week of RtI, so all plans will be closing! Please make sure you have completed all progress monitoring on School Net. ACPs will begin Thursday, Dec 10th, and will continue until next Thursday, Dec 17th. An ACP schedule has been previously provided. We are ecstatic to report that we are seeing purposeful instruction during spot observations and will continue to perform spots into next week. Let's have a SUPER week at Cowart!

Faculty Reflection: Send Your Regrets

Take a moment and reflect on what you hoped would happen as we started the school year. Now take a moment to consider which of these has not happened as you hoped."

Once you have identified this, answer this question: "What is something that is holding back your success?"

"After you have identified this obstacle, write it down, put it in an envelope, address and stamp it to Santa (or the North Pole), and mail it." Sending your regrets -- identifying what has gotten in the way and committing to get past it as we start the New Year -- is a powerful activity that can help move us forward.
