Bobcat Weekly Update
We Know Every Child by Name and by Need
September 22, 2017
Have a great weekend!
A few things:
Creating Culture - this article is about how we can use the idea of a growth mindset to continue to work and grow in our craft!
Signature line in email - Please be sure to include your name, grade/subject taught, and you phone number in your email signature. With families who have multiple kids in the district, it helps to know who the emails are from.
Lakeview Learner (formally Top Cat) - Please fill in student names on sheet by 9/29. We will visit classrooms the morning of October 2nd.

Faculty Advisory Council - Laura Janese
Yesterday at the FAC meeting Dr. Warren assigned homework to each member. He wants campuses to answer the following 3 questions:
1. What incentive ideas do you have teacher attendance?
2. What did the district do really well/not so well for Professional development? (engage, first weeks before kids come)
3. What did you like/not like about back to school? (convocation, days before school, curriculum, pacing, etc.)

TTESS Pre-conference Form
As we are finishing up our goal setting confernces, we can begin looking forward to TTESS observations. Below is the Pre-conference lesson planning form you will use during your TTESS Pre-conference. It also looks similar to last year, but we adjusted a few questions to ponder so they align better with our Problem of Practice and Instructional Focus.
