Good Morning Sanger High School

Hello Team...

Happy Monday! We made it through another week!

I want to take a moment to say thank you to each and everyone of you. I am so proud of how this team pulled together through adversity to embrace our students. Remember that each day brings a new beginning and together we can achieve! A big shout out to Ms. Ramsey for a very successful Prom. The facility was perfect and the students appeared to have a wonderful time.

Have a great week!

Go Indians!

Challenge for this week!

Please take a moment to share in Good Things. Many of our students really could use the continued support and what better way to start each class. I challenge each of you to start each and every class this week with Good Things.

Instruction

Walk-throughs this week

With testing out of the way for a little while, the SHS admin team will be coming around to see all the great things happening in classrooms. Our focus with our walk-throughs will be guiding questions and formative assessment. Please remember to post your guiding question daily and review it with your students. Also, continue to focus on formative assessment and let this guide your instruction. Remember.....asking a question to the class is a good thing; however, if only 2-3 students are actively involved with providing you feedback, then you truly don't know if the rest of your class is on track. Challenge yourself this week!

Counselor Corner

Our counselors continue to enter course selections into TxEIS. This is a lengthy process; however, an essential element in master schedule planning. Thank you for your patience!

Sticky note posted: Ice machine in cafeteria...Is it going to be fixed?

This is one of those rare situations where I am not responsible for facilitating the repair of this item. That does not happen very often. However, we have inquired with central administration and they indicated that they are working with a couple of companies to get everything back in order as quick as possible.
