Week of August 30 - September 3, 2021
Everyone Contributes at Gray Hawk
Additionally, this past week I spoke to all of our students about contributing to OUR GRAY HAWK COMMUNITY. As lunch is nearing the end, we have one person from each class assist with sweeping the three classroom tables and then a table wiper from each table. This has provided OUR GRAY HAWKS the opportunity to take ownership of our school and helped tremendously with the transition from lunch to PE. We also have students that are door greeters every morning and assist with holding doors at the end of the day to wish everyone well as they leave for the day. I am so proud of all of our students as they work together to build OUR GRAY HAWK culture.
PD for Staff on Tuesday - NO SCHOOL
Teachers will have conversations about designing OUR Makerspace, examining OUR Fall test data, and furthering discussions around continuing to develop OUR GRAY HAWK culture. This will involve finalizing OUR Mission and Vision and beginning to create an action plan centered around the things that are most important to us.
Every morning at Gray Hawk, a student leader reads OUR GRAY HAWK AFFIRMATION (as seen below) to OUR students. It is OUR job to breathe life into OUR GRAY HAWKS and encourage them to embrace their uniqueness and know that they are loved. As OUR affirmation says, "at GRAY HAWK we are a family." As a family it is also our job to honor one another's differences and embrace OUR shared values as a school community. When we embrace diverse backgrounds, we are building a strong, inclusive school community and preparing our students for the real world. I believe the work and dedication needed to create OUR GRAY HAWK culture is some of the most important foundational work we can do as a community of educators and I am excited to begin these conversations to strengthen our community and one another.
