Good Afternoon Lead Families,
I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. Please see the updates and information for the coming week.
This past Friday, our students participated in our crew survey and we have a lot to celebrate! Out of 201 responses from students in 3rd-8th grade, here are just a few of the highlights:
When asked if a teacher would encourage them if a task was difficult, 75% responded positively (extremely likely/very likely)
When asked how much Crew has helped them discover what is important to them, 66% responded positively (helped a great deal/helped quite a bit)
When asked how much students feel accepted by others in their Crew, 68% responded positively. (Completely accepted/mostly accepted)
When asked how much students feel they belong in their Crew, 81% responded positively. (Completely belong/mostly belong)
When asked how well students felt known by their Crew leader, 70% responded positively (Knows me very well/Pretty well)
When asked how included students feel by their Crew leader, 85% of students responded positively (Very included/pretty included)
These are very encouraging and powerful results of our crew time each day and your extensions of these conversations at home. As we continue digging into the data, we will use the student responses to find ways to continue to improve. But for now, let's celebrate and recognize such a wonderful moment.
Celebration of Learning
We can't wait to see everyone at our Celebration of Learning this Thursday, January 12th from 5:30pm-7:15pm. This is our hallmark event where students display 3 months of deep expedition learning. Doors open at 5pm. Students should dress in their black polo shirts and khaki bottom material. If you do not have a black polo shirt, we have limited sizes available for sale in the front office.
Hands on Lead
MLK day is designated as a 'national day of service,' and we would love for you to join the serve well committee in beautifying our school on Monday, January 16th, from 10-12.
