Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

Week 4

CONNECTING

Our theme at Sigler Elementary this year is "connecting". Each week we will capture images of our Sigler Community connecting in four vital areas; curriculum, community, students and staff. We will showcase the images below for all to enjoy and remind ourselves of the power of a connectivity!

CONNECTING WITH STAFF - 1st Grade looking good in their team shirts!

AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination

Each week we are going to highlight an AVID strategy that you can incorporate into your routine in the classroom or parents can discuss with students at home.


My Goal


When writing down your goal, be sure it is SMART:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Action-oriented
  • Reasonable
  • Timely


1. What do you want to accomplish?


2. By what date do you want to complete your goal?


3. How will you accomplish your goal?


For more information about this lesson, staff can find the AVID folder on the shared drive: Sigler: AVID
