Asking Kids the Right Questions

This is a short article for parents on asking the right questions to help create more caring and empathetic children and teenagers. It is an article you could possibly share with families to consider, but also to teachers and staff to add to circles, morning meetings, and discussions.

More Professional Development for You!

Do I hold my teachers accountable for ensuring that all of my students strive to achieve academic excellence, including by meeting district, state and federal benchmarks? Mr. Kafele says we must hold your entire school community accountable for the pursuit of excellence, and your standards must remain high for each one involved-but especially for teachers. Though you must treat your teachers fairly when holding them accountable, your leadership must also be firmly established. For your school to move forward successfully as one, you must be able to demonstrate your authority.
