Nuts and Bolts
Hey Team NMS!  We can do this!  One more week!  Everyone is in desperate need of our week off!  But, let’s make this week count, keep the students working on rigorous material all week and wear them out!  Let’s not waste a single moment and spring break will be here before we know it!  The DC’s met on Friday and have a really awesome plan to share with you!  They are ready for your feedback so that we can work this spring to finalize the plan and begin to put it in place in August!  I very much appreciate the hard week that the DC’s put in on Friday and the really great conversations that were held!  Don’t be shocked when it looks like a lot!  Much of it is already in place and is being done every day!  Be sure you have read the Intro and Chapter 5 to Teach Like A Champion for your department meeting. The DC’s are united in this plan and want your feedback in order to grow NMS to be the highest achieving Title 1 middle school in SBISD.  We are going to make this happen by having a culture of achievement, accountability and feedback for all!  Go Team NMS!!
