Acton Weekly Update: 3/16/18

Big picture

FTCSC Hedgehog Focus

1. We accept LEARNING as the fundamental purpose of our district and therefore are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on learning.

2. We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose. We cultivate a COLLABORATIVE CULTURE through development of high-performing teams.

3. We assess our effectiveness on the basis of RESULTS rather than intentions. Individuals, teams, and schools seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.

HSBT Wellness Screenings are at Acton on April 3rd from 7:00 AM-10:00 AM. If you are signing up for the screening at a time when you need coverage for your room, please let me know ASAP so I can work out a coverage schedule.


Please Read the following article "3 Key Questions" below and reflect on what/how and why we are assessing our students.

After meeting with every grade level I felt CONFIDENT that we are all working strategically and intentionally to meet student needs during our extension times. There was EXCELLENT discussion regarding some tweaks we can make this year and for me to keep in mind while working on the schedule for next school year. Your input is valuable. Keep up the good work and make every minute count!
