Count On Me - I'll Count On You
As we're beginning the second semester of the 2015-16 school year, I thought it might be helpful to share my thoughts on how we can forge a positive relationship, focused on the success of your student. In that spirit I offer the following statements:
Count on me…..
- To exhibit a caring attitude and positive regard for all our students • To visibly demonstrate my belief that every student can learn • To listen carefully and investigate any concerns fully • To ensure that discipline is a part of the learning experience in our school • To return your phone call or email within 24-48 hours • To maintain a positive school atmosphere and environment
I’ll count on you…..
- To realize my focus as the building leader is to make decisions that are in the best interest of all my students • To support my daily priority of observing teaching and learning in the classrooms, understanding that means I may not be immediately available in the office when you stop in • To understand that I will not be able to disclose any information about other students to you • To contact the adult closest to your concern first---a teacher or other responsible adult before coming immediately to the administrator
The whole concept of “count on me, I’ll count on you” only works if we all do our best to come together for each child. None of us is perfect, nor will we accomplish these goals all the time, but they are worthy goals to strive toward as we work together at Edgerton.
