Good Morning Sanger High School

Welcome Back Team...

Congratulations to everyone for another successful week. If you haven't had a chance to make it to our fall production, then I highly encourage you to do so. Congratulations to Mr. Jackson, Mrs. Perkins and the cast and crew of Chemical Imbalance for a wonderful performance Saturday. I had an opportunity to see everyone is action and it was a true delight.

On the academic side...congratulations to Mrs. Reynolds and the UIL Academic Team. They ventured down the road to Aubrey to compete in the Aubrey Holiday Classic Invitational Meet. Rebecca Dellinges and Austin Terry competed together in 3 rounds of CX debate, and they won 2 out of the 3 rounds. This is a great accomplishment for them because it was Austin's first time to compete, and they did an awesome job as a team.

Patrick Blount and Kalli Smith competed in three rounds of Persuasive Speaking, and Roberto Campos competed in three rounds of Informational Speaking. Unfortunately, they didn't advanced to the final round, but they gained a lot of insight to improve their performance for the next meet.

Again, great job this week Sanger High School!!!

Go Indians!

Instructional Practices

S.M.A.R.T. Goals

“According to research, goal setting is the single most powerful motivational tool in a leader’s toolkit. Why? Because goal setting operates in ways that provide purpose, challenge, and meaning. Goals are the guideposts along the road that make a compelling vision come alive. Goals energize people. Specific, clear, challenging goals lead to greater effort and achievement than easy or vague goals do.” (Blanchard, 2007, p. 150)

S=Specific (Specific goals have a much better chance of being reached because they clearly define what is trying to be accomplished.)

M=Measurable (A measurable goal should include a plan with targets and milestones that you can use to make sure you are moving in the right direction.)

A=Attainable (An attainable goal should be realistic and include a plan that breaks your overall goal down into smaller, manageable action steps that use the time and resources available to you within the timeline you have set.)

R=Relevant (Choose a goal that matters.)

T=Timely (A time-based goal is limited by a defined period of time and includes a specific timeline for each step of the process.)
