Legendary Lens

"Excellence Without Boundaries"

April 20, 2015

What does it mean to have a Legendary Lens?

How we view our purpose is influenced by our life experiences which shape our perspectives. This adds to the strength and depth of our team.
As we serve with an unrelenting commitment to excellence, we must posses a shared and common LENS. As two very wise women once said, "One Band. One Sound." makes for LEGENDARY outcomes! The Legendary Lens serves as a weekly calibration which defines our collective target and guides our aim for excellence.

High Leverage Focus

Quote of the Week

Principal Message

As we enter the last 7 weeks, our time is going to be stretched in a 100 different directions. Plan your time, review your weekly calendar, so that you know how you are spending your time and also gives you the ability to recognize when "the noise" is rising in volume; taking you off your target.

We are in middle school and unplanned events happen all the time. Our ability to be flexible and efficient allow us to effectively problem solve and move back on course.

Remind teachers of their roles, through testing and on non-testing days so they don't loose focus and remain out of the "noise".

Which strength will rise? (We will do this on Friday!! :-)

Everyday at ARMS is a new one and this week teachers will be incredibly focused on making the most of all the time they have. As we do all we can this week to support our teachers and students, which strength will be called upon the most as we provide leadership, guidance, and encouragement this week?
Your strengths make you, "you", reflect and be intentional in how you serve others. Reflect on what you notice this week and share at Trailblazer on Friday.
