Team Talk

Week of May 16th

SLOs, Summative Conferences and SPOTs

SLOs should be submitted to your appraiser for scoring by tomorrow. You will receive an email noting the date and time for your summative conference tomorrow. Summative conferences must be completed by Thursday, May 19th.

We will continue to conduct SPOTs to ensure all team members receive the requisite 6, 8 or 10 observations.

AVID Demonstration Site Confirmed!

Friday's visit went extremely well! Our observer advised us that we meet the requirements and should begin completing the application. A certification visit will be conducted next school year.

In preparation for the visit it is essential that all team members understand the why behind our decision to implement AVID strategies school-wide. Simply stated, the organization, time management and self-efficacy skills acquired in AVID classrooms are exactly what students need to successfully to navigate college. Our commitment to implement AVID practices school-wide ensures all students are college and career ready.

Summer PD Site

New Tech is a summer PD site and most rooms will be utilized. Plan to prepare your room for visitors by storing personal items and bringing order to your classroom.

AMS Soccer Game

On May 27th at 3:30 we will gather around the track as a school community and watch our soccer team exhibit their skills. Details will be forthcoming.
