The Week of May 30, 2016

ADAMSON FEEDER PATTERN LEVERAGE POINTS

A Note From Your Executive Director...

Team,


Congratulations to making it to the last week of school! The road of education takes us to destinations planned and unplanned. Thank you for serving as the leader of your campus and guiding your teams on a sometimes winding path.


Remain tight and keep instruction as a focus. Students will have "down time" when summer vacation begins. Finish Strong!


Please remember that we will attend Adamson's graduation as a team this Friday evening. See you at Ellis Davis field house around 6:30. :)


Here's to a great week of teaching and learning!


Ms. Hill

GRADES, GRADES, GRADES, GRADES, GRADES

Please ensure that all of your teachers have submitted their grades for this final six weeks along with any exam grades. Our goal is to have ZERO student records that are incomplete as we dismiss for the summer. Monitor this closely so that teachers do not have to be called back to complete a task when they are on vacation. Thank you!

Assistant Principal, Counselor and 3R Apprasials

Now is the time for you all to complete the Assistant Principal, Counselor and 3R Appraisals. Please see the links below to access important forms for this process.


**PLEASE NOTE** I am not able to approve your 3Rs in oracle at this time. I have a TAC ticket in for resolution. Thank you!

TEI TIMELINES AND PROGRESS

MAY HAS ARRIVED and that means that the following deadlines are upon us!


May 23-June 6 will be the teacher rebuttal window in oracle for summative performance evaluations.


June 2 is the last day to conduct spot observations and the last day to hold the summative conferences.

THE PRINCIPAL 50

Critical Leadership Questions for Inspiring Schoolwide Excellence

I trust that you enjoyed the weekly messages from this text. My intention was to give you something to ponder for the week; something to think about in a reflective way to help improve your leadership capacity. I, too, reflected each week and applied Author Kafele's words where I could.


I encourage you to continue reading professional resources. ASCD is a great place to search for the latest, relevant reading materials.


Until the next book study!!
