Frenchwood's Friday Focus

January 15, 2015


As Jenice, Jason, and I were putting up the BE... bulletin board, the powerful words chosen at our January 4th staff meeting:

  • touched our hearts
  • inspired us
  • motivated us

Please take time to share this board with students and other staff members so that it will be a source of inspiration for everyone.

Products on Parade

The quality of education provided to our students daily is outstanding. One way we advertise and promote the learning is through hallway displays. Below is an example of displays the exemplify excellence in teaching and learning. If your classroom hallway display is not current or posted, please complete this by January 21, 2016. The following must be included:

  • Lesson objective/TEK
  • Student work
  • Neat and organized display

Administration will walk January 22nd to review displays. If your display is not up or complete there will be a required work hour scheduled to complete displays on Tuesday, January 26th from 4:20 - 5:20 p.m.

As I was scrolling through Facebook, I came across a post that was truly heartwarming. The mother in this post, places a heart on each child's door starting February 1st with a message about something she loves about them. Messages include:

  • you are funny
  • you are smart
  • you are kind
  • you are hardworking
  • you rock at basketball

How can we use this for our students each morning starting February 1st? Please share your ideas with other staff members. I hope to see some heartwarming ideas throughout February that remind our students how great they are.

Morning Arrival

Please remember to follow the following guidelines for morning arrival:

  • swipe your ID on the back key card
  • RAPTOR in
  • if you are running late, contact your supervisor

College Month

Get ready for the College Wall Decorating Contest! Due Friday, January 22.

Wall displays must include:

· Name of School

· Location

· Colors and mascot

· Year college was established

· Admission Requirements

· Cost

· Majors

· Interesting Facts, Notable Alumni, Championships, etc.

· Other information you think may be helpful (perhaps info. about you)

Display tip: avoid posting large paragraphs with the above information. Break it down so that people (and judges J) can easily see what you’re communicating. Good luck!

Note: we are doing wall displays this year, because the Fire Marshall prohibits fully covered doors. You may, however, post things on your door to enhance your wall display.
