Team Gompers: It's October..It's October...October is HERE!!

Every day, I am blessed to be of sound mind, body, and health. I am also blessed to have TEAM GOMPERS as partners in this #180daysofwhy journey. Thank you for being you!.

October is my favorite month as I get to know first hand how the students are actively engaged and making meaning in their learning environments via informal classroom visitations. I will be speaking and engaging with students on their daily learning intention and how they are showing understanding/mastery toward it. The informal visitations will include feedback notices (electronic) in which you may or may not choose to respond to the notice. My goal is every staff member will receive 1 informal feedback by the end of October. My noticings and feedback are connected to our instructional expectations.

Looking forward to our 1:1 Data conferences this week and hearing the goals and the process to which to attain those goals will be implemented.

October 23 is National Unity Day against Bullying. During the first several weeks there have been a series of bullying behaviors across grade levels. I will host a parent meeting and share the process our site uses for supporting students in these situations on 10/23.

As we have gone G-R-E-E-N....thanks for working through the new process for a K-8 Student of the Month Success celebration.....remember our song "from Kinder to 8th grade we are family".

PS. Don't forget your chairs for the assembly!!

In order to really develop relationships to support all GATORS, we must explicitly and effectively engage students in social-emotional learning. Our message to students, along with our actions and interactions can make a BIG impact! We all grow and thrive in a positive environment!
