Quick Note From Principal Turner
It's the last week before break and you have done an amazing job. Our scholars are truly fortunate to be under your instruction and your leadership. As we finish this week, I encourage all of us to finish this week with relevant and engaging instruction that pushes our scholars to achieve more. Many of our scholars met and exceeded their MAP growth goals based on the reports that I viewed this week. Stop for a moment and imagine if our scholars had growth goals based on our core values of integrity, safety, education, accountability, leadership, grit and responsibility. Many of our scholars would have met and exceeded their "core value" goals as well. I'm encouraged by the progress that I see in our scholars and the desire that many of our scholars have to be the best that they can be.
Let's take advantage of every learning opportunity that presents itself this upcoming week and to steal a sports adage, "let's leave it all on the court" this week on behalf of our scholars and on behalf of the campus culture that we are building each day.
Press onward Spartans!!!
