What is the Principal Reading?

For kids: I'm looking for recommendations! Maybe your recommendation will be the one I read!   I also recommend reading Newbery Medal and Honor Books,so it might be time to review the list! 

For Adults: The Book of Beautiful Questions, by Warren Berger, is intriguing! Our professional culture continues to be anchored to many of the principles found in Dare to Lead by Brene Brown and other leadership texts. Latest leadership reading: FYI: For Your Improvement by Lombardo and Eichinger.


Spring Updates From the Desk of Mr. I:

Report cards come home next Friday, and we celebrate the achievements of our students. As a part of our ongoing mission, our teachers are charged with engaging every student at an appropriate level of challenge. Each grade level team meets regularly with our coach to refine our teaching strategies to ensure all kids are growing towards end-of-year standards and this work continues into the third trimester.  


For grades 3-5, state testing is in April, and Red Rocks condenses this for each grade. We ask that you support this important opportunity for our students to “show what they know." 


Yes, our team is dedicated to improvement. How do they do it? One key ingredient is that our team is truly “happy.” There is a joy at this school that is bigger than any one person. Take a  moment to watch this Ted Talk on the science of happiness - you’ll be glad you did! 


Speaking of improvements and report cards, did you know the principal gets a report card too? At each monthly “SAC” meeting important metrics for our school are reviewed, and principal growth is a part of that process.  (We have 2 night SACs a year, Nov/Mar).
