STEM Week 19 Announcements

January 2018

WEEK OF January 8, 2018 # 20

● We have a Growth Mindset ● We Keep all Staff & Every Student in Mind ● We Commit & Follow Through ●

Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season surrounded by family and friends and filled with love and laughter! Hopefully everyone took some time to rest, relax, and binge watched a few Netflix shows. Now it’s time to transition back to into work mode 💪! 3rd quarter is our most critical quarter with 46 instructional days between now and Spring Break. We feel that the best way to prepare for the upcoming quarter is to spend Monday planning both with your teams and individually. As you and your teams are planning, reflect on the feedback you and your teams have received the past two quarters from walkthroughs and observations as well as on our current PLC – make meaning of texts. We will meet together for breakfast at 7:45 in the MPR and after that the remainder of the day will be for you to work with your teams on planning for the upcoming week(s). Your lead will let you know what time you’ll meet as a grade level and what time will be time for you to prep in your room. We ask that you respect the opportunity for time by adhering to contract hours and using the time to make sure you are well planned and prepared.

Have a wonderful weekend and we will see you on Monday morning!
