NMS Faculty Bulletin 1-6-2014

Happy 2014!!!


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

I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas vacation!  I had a peaceful and fun holiday!  I know it was a much needed vacation for everyone!  

We’re back – Yeah and it is time to move that needle on student achievement.  Everything we do this semester will determine what our students learn and how prepared they are to climb the mountain.  Please be sure that when you come to 03’s you are prepared with your google doc complete and your trackers are also updated.  We are going to dig in the data and get really specific about kids!  I believe in you and we must all believe in our kids!

The best teachers find ways to convince students that they, the teachers, are believers – believers in the students and in the subject.  Not by magic, their words and actions, subtle but observalbe, send messages and thereby make a huge difference in learning, especially to low performing students!
Action Items:
1.  Be sure that you read your two articles for PD on Monday
2.  Be on duty – our school is a safe school when adults are on duty
3.  Prepare for 03’s using the google doc and having your tracker updated
