We will make this update short and sweet. Just a few things-

First - Happy Principals Month. Yes, you deserve a whole month. The second greatest impact upon a student's school experience following the impact of a teacher is the influence that the principal has upon the learning culture of the school. Your value is tremendous; know your impact. Thank you for all you do.

The Kindergarten Readiness Survey window survey opened on 10/1 and is due 10/10. Each of your Kindergarten teachers received an email containing the names of five students (random) to share about their readiness for school. I know surveys abound, this is an important one around our early childhood efforts. Please follow up with your K teachers to ensure they complete this. Thank you.

Finally, Mike and I are looking forward to learning with you this Wednesday. Please come prepared with your scorecards and slides completed around academics, as we will continue to dig in.

Make it a great week!

Digital Text is Changing How Kids Read

because of the time spent with digital tech, kids are reading more now, in literal words, than ever. Yet the relationship between reading and digital tech is complicated.

Happy Principals Month!
