SSS Department Kudos!
If you have kudos to share about you or a colleague, send them to Alex.
Kudos to all staff supporting new student orientation! Jenny noted she looked into a few accounts and saw all of the contacts noting great student support.
Great job, team!
A note sent to Jessica about her great level of support: "Hi! I just wanted to send you a quick high five for being so amazing today! I told my girls that you were SUPER busy today and that you might not reply to their emails (and questions) quickly-but you proved me wrong! Way to go! You are VERY appreciated by the Sanchez-Chapman family! Have a great rest of your day!”
SSS Department Trivia

If you completed this before, it didn't record. Please try again. Share something about you that your colleagues may not know and you would feel comfortable with them knowing. We will include this as a question in a future roadmap.
Weekly Calendar, 9/24-9/28
Departmental & School Updates
Next step of our Time Tracking Process - ACTION REQUIRED
Now that you've tracked your weekly schedule, it is now time to go through and rate the priority of the tasks you completed during the week.
Next to each item, label the task as a 1, 2, 3, or 4 (the image has a definition for each rating).
Your action steps:
- Create a daily percentage for each rating (e.g. on Monday, I spent 23% of my day on 1, 22% on 2, 38% on 3, and 17% on 4). Then add those up and create a weekly breakdown, too. If you choose, you can get fancy and create a pie chart.
- Send me your breakdown for each day and the whole week (remember, I don't need to see your whole schedule, just the percentages).
- In your email to me, tell me any a-ha moments that arose when reviewing this information, and anything you'd like to do differently.
Next week I will add the final step (which I think I said this week was the final week, but alas, not quite), which is the actual time blocking.

Out of Office Reply Template
I am out of the office [date(s)] [optional: add reason – e.g. school outing, holiday]. I will return emails when I return on [date].

Remember, our goal is exhaustive communication.
Professional Learning Communities
As your PLC has data to review, send info to Alex to post for the group.
An ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry to achieve better results for the students they serve.
PLC’s operate under the assumption that the key to improving learning for students is continuous, job-embedded learning for educators.
Four questions to guide PLC’s
- What do we expect students to learn?
- How do we know they are learning it?
- How do we respond when they do not learn it?
- How do you respond when they have already learned it?
