Even though five weeks WILL fly by, take time to rest and appreciate today.

This week in HSD...

- Student Survey of Teachers: The recommended period to conduct the Student Survey of Teachers is mid-October to mid-November. If you haven't done your surveys yet, please try to complete them next week. If you are using the electronic format, please make a copy of the form using a unique name for each class you want to do a survey for and use this copy for your class. If you want us to print out hard copies for you please let Ms. Mars know. Your summary and analysis of the data from these surveys will be discussed during your mid-year goals review in January. 

-Final Exam Surveys: Please fill this form in as soon as possible to help us finalize the exam schedule early. Even if you are not giving an exam, we need you to fill in particular parts of the survey. Thanks for your help.

-Teacher to Teacher visits: There's a lot we can learn from each other. Please remember that visiting co-teachers' classrooms is part of our professional development expectations. There is a simple form to fill out and it's located in your goals folders. Beyond the form, taking time to debrief with the teacher whose class you visited is a fruitful exercise for both the classroom teacher and the observer.

Tuesday morning devotions: Sign up sheet is on the staff lounge bulletin board. Please sign up for an opportunity to bless HSD colleagues by leading prayer time beginning with a 3-minute devotion as the Spirit leads. 

- Steel Magnolias - The first of the Drama 2 productions is happening next week. Please support those students who are heavily involved by giving them accommodation as outlined in our policies:

 For students in theatrical productions who are required to be on campus four hours or more each night during the week of a performance, projects and tests scheduled during the week of performances as well as the following Monday and Tuesday may be turned in up to the second Monday after the production without penalty. This would normally include members of the cast, stage crew and tech crew. It would not normally include those with lesser involvement such as the make-up crew.

Have a good week.
