I Need To Hear From You
As the new leader of Bay Harbor I want to absorb as much information and learn as much from you and about you as possible! TOGETHER we will continue to grow and foster a positive climate and culture with high expectations for all. My main Year 1 goal will be to support you and try to remove any possible roadblocks that will impede your success! Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out the "Listening Session" Google Form. Your feedback is great and helpful! If you haven't yet, PLEASE take time to provide me with any information you would like me to know about you and the school! <Click Here>
I would also like to meet with you in some format to get to know you better; please email me to set up a time in July or August. The meetings I have had so far have been excellent and informational! <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I do not know the official date that the iPads will be in, but I will update you as soon as I hear anything. Fun times!! Please contact me with any questions. Please also know that everyone is at a different level of knowledge and comfort with technology. Don't fret if you feel "behind", we all are to some extent and will work together to get better each day!

We went into the meeting with the mindset, "What are we willing to do different to ensure ALL students learn?". I feel like a good ground work was laid for this. The team worked extremely hard and many professional conversations were had regarding data and next steps. I will now work to organize our brainstorms and contact any key players necessary to flush out an organized and student-focused plan. More communication will come out in the weeks and month to come.
