Mustang Minute

Vol III Issue 26, March 6, 2015


This is a longer edition of the MM, to make up for some lost time! It's hard to believe, but here are some facts: We have 20 days until spring break. After that we have 20 days until SOL testing begins. 40 days!

We're already organized around this idea - teaching students what they need to know based on the VDOE standards and your assessments. Remember your PD and your commitments. Rely on and help your teammates. I am confident in the course we've charted. And the results will speak for themselves...

Grant Winners!

Congratulations to: Karla Moody and Karen DiGiorgio, Shelley Haywood, and Laura McCarthy.

These staff members were selected to receive grants for innovative projects that support instruction. These mini grants (up to $500) are funded by the Newport News Educational Foundation and the National Council of Jewish Women.
