Refocus: Habit 2 Begin with the End in Mind!!
Welcome back! As we return to campus, we must be intentional about maintaining the systems that provide structure on our campus. We have done an excellent job of communicating the systems and routines to leaders and staff members. We hold each other accountable daily, and that is one of our major strengths. However, we can only go so far if we are the only people aware of the intricate expectations of each system. This week, we will focus on the following:
1. Whole Group Reset: Resetting arrival, dismissal, cafeteria, and hallway transitions. We will teach the rubric indicators to our students and new staff.
2. Goal Setting: This week, we will roll out the first iteration of the Bailey Data Driven Action Planning app for staff members. Additionally, each student will receive a personalized goal setting form. We will distribute the forms this week, and engage in campus wide goal setting during 1st period Friday.
3. Parent Engagement: This month, we will host parent engagement and virtual lessons to help parents understand what our goals are, what their child's goals are, and what the campus wide expectations are.
BACK TO THE BASICS: We are going back to this basic idea: "Students will not be motivated to meet an expectation if they do not understand what the expectation is." This week, each individual student will identify their academic goals. They will learn what their base line is and identify a goal for growth. I am committed to making students and parents aware of individual student progress and goals.
Food Giveaway Success!!!
The parents and students were so happy to see the Bailey Staff in their community. Many of them said that they wanted the food but could not make it to campus. We gave away all of the food boxes in one hour!! And the operation at the campus remained steady and flowed smoothly. Thank you, Team Bailey, for bringing JOY to our students!
