    Nicole McLaurin, Khaisha Charles, Tania Chandler, Angela Jackson, Pamela Poles, and Melody Thompson did an awesome job organizing and executing our PSAT administration. Their expertise and attention to detail are amazing and allows us to seamlessly implement these school-wide test experiences. Thank you!

    Natoya Coleman, Brian Makell, and Dr. Cathleen Rozanski are to be commended for organizing opportunities for our 9th graders to engage with outside mentors and our own students to learn valuable lessons about how to navigate the first year of high school. Thank you Ernest Green for facilitating the 9th grade boys’ assembly with the Men of Amate. The meeting was powerful for the attendees and the student panelists!

    Thank you staff for engaging in our first learning walk of the school year! High functioning professional learning communities commit to examining evidence of practice with the goal of improving instruction and student learning outcomes. Last week’s learning walk is an effective way to gather this evidence. Great job!

    Kudos Tanya Adkisson, science teacher coordinator, for coordinating the science department working with a literacy specialist at last week’s department meeting in preparation for the literacy task implementation. Wonderful work!
