My first 7 months as an elementary principal has involved a lot of learning. Some of the most important things I’ve learned as a first year administrator is to ask lots of questions, connect with other educators on social media and be willing to ask others for ideas.
Paige Hopkins, Principal at Noble Reed Elementary in Crandall ISD, shared the idea of Family Friday with me. Paige and I were assistant principals in the same district several years ago and we both began as Elementary Principals this year in different districts. I have enjoyed following her on her journey through social media. Last week she posted about an upcoming Family Friday at Noble Reed. I asked more questions and she shared what they have done at Noble Reed.
Our Campus Leadership Team and our Site Based Committee meet this last week and decided we would have our first ever Family Friday. One parent said their child is always talking about her math stations and the mom would like to see what it looks like in the classroom. Our goal is to engage families in the classroom during the school day for a fun day for Family, Staff & Students.
Today we sent a SAVE THE DATE with the information below. Thank you Paige for sharing your ideas.
