So, students returned to school on August 31st. We are well into the routine once again. It is amazing how quickly you get the feeling that you never left. The routine is good, but sometimes the nonroutine is just what you need!
The school year has started very smoothly. No big glitches, no bumps or scrapes, and everyone seemed to settle in quite quickly. Hopefully that continues!
As a school we are going to be working on a few things this year:
- our vision and mission statement. (We really need a new one!)
- What do we accept as evidence of student learning?
- We’ve made a lot of progress in the area of teacher led PLCs and PD. But how do we KNOW that what we are doing makes a difference in student learning?
The discussions are just starting, but I look forward to where they’ll lead.
