Monday Morning Memo

11-16-15

Good morning!


I hope you all have had a great weekend! A team of us went to the Google Summit in Conway, and it was AWESOME! I hope that many more of you can join us next year. Not only did we learn so much, but the HOGS beat LSU... what else can I ask for in a weekend? :)


Allow me to take a minute to thank all of you for your hard work last week. The veterans day assembly and career expo were huge successes that were not possible without you. I appreciate all you do everyday!

Guests on Monday and Tuesday

We will be hosting two groups of guests this week.


On Monday, there will be a group of principals from the master principal institute here to provide feedback on my performance as part of my professional development.


On Tuesday, there will be a groups of administrators and teachers from Greenwood as they prepare to open their Freshman Center.


We will be visiting team meetings and classrooms, so please prepare your students.

Progress reports

Progress reports go out Wednesday, 11/18 in STAR. All grades need to be current in eschool by Tuesday morning at 8:00 to give us time to print and sort the reports.

November peer observations

Peer observations are this week. Color teams will observe THURSDAY, November 19th (this is a change) and content teams will observe Wednesday, November 18th. All teams will report to the conference room first to discuss our focus. Encore teachers will observe during one prep period next week, or may join any of the teams Wednesday or Thursday. Our focus will be on questioning and classroom discussion.
