IDEAS/THINGS TO THINK ABOUT/REMINDERS

  • Data meetings are being put on your calendars. Before we meet please have readily available for any assessment data; district or teacher created assessment.
  • The war rooms, big sticky notes of sticky notes, by the wonderful Michelle are now ready to go! Please utilize this tool as you meet with your teams.
  • I have attached to the email (I might have to forward them) two documents that contain activities for students to complete in regards to social skills. I know we have a lot of students who may not have much home training and this is our time to really teach them so please utilize those documents.
  • Team Leads- Please visit with your teams to ensure that students are receiving team/social skill building at some point each week.
  • Surprise I have volunteered Inspire Academy to be a cheer section/water station at the upcoming Chisholm Trail 5K. Please start telling kiddos about the race. I would like to actually run it so if any one else would like to participate in the race let me know and we can do it together.
  • Recruitment for the 2017 - 2018 will begin February 1. I have already reached out about a recruitment video and am going to visit with the IPPG committee about how we should start meeting with current 7th graders.
