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: 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.


Winter Message from Mr. I:

You talk, we listen! Each year the district sends a family survey, and the results are reviewed by our team. We discuss trends and actions as a part of SAC (School Accountability) meetings. The name of the survey is changing. Look for a "Panorama Education Family Survey" email. Thank you for carving out a few minutes for this.

February: Light the Night! Our Kids benefit from giving to others, and we celebrate our annual  student fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Red Rocks has been recognized as an outstanding supporter of this work for many years, changing countless lives! Thank you Mr. P and families for getting our kids involved again! 

Productive struggle is healthy for kids–it is when kids get a chance to try and "fail forward" positively. Productive struggle requires schools and parents to partner together. Like a track meet where all run but few make the top three, we practice the balance of effort and achievement. In that spirit, please join me in thanking our students for taking the risk with class level and school-wide Spelling Bees! Each attempt is another chance to grow. We are proud of all of our spellers!

Winter is a great time to be at Red Rocks! Go Raccoons! --Mr. I
