Welcome Back, Students, Parents and Staff to the 2015-16 school year!
We are ready to SOAR to New Heights together. It is time to start another adventurous year at J. L. Francis Elementary School, unifying as one team with one goal! Let’s go Eagles!
As usual, many of our awesome staff used this time to participate in some inspiring learning opportunities at workshops and trainings (Back to the Core, VISTA and STEM training, Francis Summer Retreat, and etc.). Some staff members attended classes and others traveled to places near and far. We also had quite a few teachers who shared their knowledge at different conferences throughout the area. I participated in the Center for Educational Leadership training in Denver, Colorado.
I am exuberant about all of the useful strategies and concepts I learned. It was an honor to be a part of the leadership training because I will use the strategies to hone my skills. I will also be able to provide teachers with feedback about their instructional practices.
