Developing a community of leaders for a better world.

Things to know....

  • Enjoy the long weekend- take some time to SHARPEN THE SAW!
  • Think win-win and help us make our First Annual Blacklight Run a success for all! Please email Kellie (kelly.hammersmith@leanderisd.org) to let her know you can help (we will probably need people from about 5:00ish-7:30)
  • During our Leader in Me Collaborative day today, Sandie and I realized that in order to begin with the end in mind the best use of part of the Leader in Me coaching day is for the Lighthouse Team to meet with her to share our campus plan and what our action teams are doing. We still really want teams to have an opportunity to meet with the coach and learn about the new Core Paradigms so we have scheduled a "Lunch & Learn" time. Here is the schedule:

Kinder & 2nd - 11:00-11:30

3rd & 1st - 11:45-12:15

4th & 5th - 12:30-1:00

(The lunch schedule will run as usual but at the designated times above teachers will leave their duty and go to the Community Room where we will provide Pizza while you learn from the coach)


  • In order to make the above work, we are going to need to synergize to cover lunch and recess duty. Support folks - please email me times you can help cover lunch/recess so we can make sure we get everything covered - but remember to set aside a time for you to attend the training too!

  • It's a fabulous feeling to go into a meeting with campus and district staff and having the campus staff prepared with plenty of data to share with the district staff. The district staff even thanked them for being prepared to share their case. Way to go Amanda Wilim, Anne Phillipson and Jessica Talley! - Sofie
