Important Message, VIPs!
It’s going to be a year of BOLD MOVES!
Now that I’ve had a chance to take the pulse of the district this past year, I am ready to take some BOLD MOVES to help us reach our mission & vision! Are you ready to take some bold moves along with me? We are going to think big but start small, take one step at a time, move slow and steady, & go from old school to bold school!
In order for alignment and coherence to occur, we will attempt to view our educational system from many angles and through many lenses. However, we can’t do it alone! We are going to focus on stakeholder collaboration to build our map to the future. The admin team and I worked on a template to get us started but we’ll need your help to make it all happen. The template is attached at the bottom of this message.
We must reach our mission and vision...our kids deserve to thrive in a system of modern learning! Yes, this may mean you have to change your mindset. Yes, this may mean that you might have to change your educational paradigm. And yes, this may mean you will be outside of your comfort zone. Are you ready to be BOLD and help prepare our students for their next steps so they can be future-ready?! After all, it’s our job to prepare students for their future, not our past!
We held our kick-off event with the School Board and Teachers so now we are ready to extend that invitation to you - our families and community. We also plan to include the voice of our students as one of our stakeholder groups. It's important that you are part of the planning process so be can reach our district mission, vision, and goals. If you are interested in learning more about our district's plan, please join us for a State of the District address on Thursday, September 27th from 6:30-8:00 in our High School Auditorium.
This year, we are going to be BOLD and try some new professional learning activities. We are going to join our neighbors, Southern Fulton, for a joint in-service day. We know that research shows that collaboration and reflection on our teaching practices are important to the learning process, as we are learners, too, just like our students!
Are you ready to make some BOLD MOVES with us? If you are interested in serving on one of our four “vision” groups, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to our partnership!
