Friday, March 10 - Staff Development Day
Here is the tentative site schedule.
AdvancED Visit - Monday
During the visit, the review team will be conducting classroom observations. I will not know the selected classrooms until the team arrives. Please take a minute to review the observation tool the team will be using to evaluate classroom quality - ideally, your teaching should be at either Evident or Very Evident not just on March 13 but every day.
The AdvancED team will also be conducting faculty interviews. I will be communicating with those of you selected to participate shortly.

Congratulations to the Varsity Baseball Team for their recent wins against Tucker (7-5) and Chamblee (11-4).
Congratulations to the Girls Varsity soccer team for their recent win against Meadowcreek 3-1.
Last week, captain and forward Luke Narker's brilliant hat trick was not enough to save the Red Devils from a heartbreaking 3-4 loss to Meadowcreek. However, by last Friday, the Red Devils had reorganized their formation and came roaring back to crush Whitewater 5-2. Midfielder Connor Logue opened the scoring with a deft penalty, followed by a sweet hat trick from forward Hasib Fudaeel, and capped off by a decisive goal by Nate Jackson. Go Devils!
Congratulations Ms. Moore
Ms. Cunningham's Absence
Thank you for holding it down during my absence and for being patience with my communication response times. Additionally, thank you for the thoughts and prayers for my family. My mom's surgery was successful and she is now recovering.
