PGES at a Glance

March Focus

  • Monitor your SGG and update your WIG board.
  • Schedule/complete post observation if your eval is scheduled this month.
  • Mid year meetings continue. We will review your PGP progress, your SGG progress, and chat about your year. Bring your leadership notebook if it is ready.
  • Gather your Domains 1 and 4 evidence and score your rubric on the provided manilla cardstock form found in your mailbox. Write your name on the form and return to my mailbox.

Thinking of You

  • Prayers for the Kappen family.
