Last week we were able to complete classroom walkthroughs of every classroom in the middle school and elementary buildings. These planned out and focused walkthroughs give us the opportunity to see our teachers posting objectives, using formative assessment, and utilizing other effective teaching methods.
At our four, countywide superintendent meeting I was able to share our ideas for graduation requirements. All of the 22 districts there, were given the chance to provide feedback and give input. Although Laura Kohler was not able to attend from the State Board of Education, she asked that we share our discussion with her and hopefully this relationship will allow us to have insight and influence on this topic in the future.
Our mid-year newsletter was finished this week and posted to our Facebook Page, webpage, and we printed copies to share with the people at Fairlawn, those who come to the community meal next Tuesday, and also shared them at a few of our local businesses.
Tomorrow night, February 13 the staff of Archbold Schools will be sponsoring the Community Meal. We hope that people will come out and join us for good food and fellowship!
There are so many exciting things going on the district right now and we have had a lot of recent accomplishments that I am very proud of. One Book, One School, We the People, Choral and Band awards and accomplishments, elementary math team, spelling bee competitors, mock trial, Super Streaks, and many more. All of these programs and successes take place because of our outstanding staff and students!
