Notes from Niki

This is about the fourth time I have typed this because it seems the autosave is not working at the moment and I keep changing computers and shutting down, so all of my wit and clever remarks are dried up.

I had the opportunity to make a school visit in the Fort Zumwalt District last week and it really served to reinforce that we are headed in the right direction. The building improvement committees that we are all currently a part of, having NWEA for benchmark testing and our technology implementation are things that are ensuring we are preparing students for further education and successful careers. But even more important is your dedication as a staff to raising quality community members and responsible individuals. None of the other stuff matters if we don't have good people serving as role models for our students. Thank you for your dedication and continued support of HMS.

I have included the agenda/slideshow for the faculty meeting next week, please review it- included is an article that you should read prior to the meeting.
