NMS Faculty Bulletin 11-25-2013


Know our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

I met with the DC’s last week – and they have State Index 1 student achievement data to share.  This data continues to give us purpose and drive for what we do each day.  We have progress yet to make!  Our December and Spring time focus will continue to be on ELL strategies, the lesson cycle, and Literacy throughout the content areas.  As we move into the second semester – begin thinking about how you use reading and writing in your content area?  As you look at the Index 1 scores and the System Safeguards from the state, you can see where are needs are and the urgency with which we need to act.  More to come – – – Remember – we have a tall mountian to climb!  Every moment counts!

Thanksgiving is around the corner!  I am very grateful for that.  While on the subject of being grateful – I am also gratful for:

NMS students
NMS dedicated and caring teachers and staff
Having the opportunity to work in this community
Being an educator! 
This career!  I love my job!

I wish you all a very restful and happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the time with your family and friends! You have earned a well deserved holiday!
