Its been a fun semester so far. I wanted to share with you our semester goals and some hopes that you students shared with me at the beginning of the semester...
1) Personal Responsibility
Mrs. Moore and myself agreed that the focus students really need to improve in making sure they are working on taking care of their own personal things as well as being aware of things like their schedule and homework. Objectively we have created a chart in the classroom that every student gets assessed by the end of the day. 3 areas are considered, 1. personal responsibility 2. transitions from class to class 3) and, doing the class chores.
2) Semester Hopes
I was really happy to hear that the students had hopes in the areas of music and healthcare (those are two things I really can help them with).
Justice, Kiah, and Moriah all agreed they want to learn more about healthcare and how to help the sick from first aid to mental health. I was so happy to hear them expressing such care for those that are in need of care.
Diego, Johnny, and Asher all expressed a desire to grow in the area of their music skills. They all agreed its important and want to focus on those classes and even receive more attention for things like piano and guitar.
All in all, Im really excited for where this semester is going and the growth Im seeing in each of these Focus A students!
