Welcome Back!! Collaborative Inquiry Beginning of Year Spotlight--JE Moss, Una, Haynes, Jere Baxter, and West End
Welcome back to the school!
There’s so much excitement in the air with students full day of class being today. It’s just an honor and privilege to be able to serve the students, parents, and community of Nashville.
With all that being said, I am excited to share a quick update about what’s been happening with collaborative inquiry the past two weeks.
July 25, 2016—The JE Moss Elementary leadership team used the collaborative inquiry process to finalize their vision, mission, and values. They also developed three SIP goals—cultural, literacy, and numeracy. You can learn about their exciting work at http://www.mnpscollaboration.org/je-moss-elementary-leadership-team-meeting.html.
July 26, 2016—The Una Elementary leadership team used the collaborative inquiry process to develop recommendations for a school-wide communication plan. The recommendation will be used by a sub-committee to create the final recommendation. You can learn about their work at http://www.mnpscollaboration.org/una-elementary-leadership-team.html.
July 27, 2016—Dr. Canidra Henderson, Dr. Margie Johnson, and Andres Rischer presented about the MNPS collaborative inquiry work to the Kentucky Principal Partnership Project in Georgetown, KY. The audience was eager to learn about the awesome work being done here in MNPS. Thanks to all of you for making it happen. The PowerPoint used can be viewed at this LINK and here: http://www.relappalachia.org/events/powerful-practice-effective-school-level-data-systems/.
August 1, 2016---Haynes Middle Prep started their year of by using the collaborative inquiry process to develop recommendations for a communication plan, which also went to a sub-committee to finalize. You can see their work at http://www.mnpscollaboration.org/haynes-middle-prep-august-1-2016.html.
August 2, 2016---Jere Baxter Middle Prep used the collaborative inquiry process to develop vision, mission, and values as part of their SIP process. The session was co-facilitated by their SIP Facilitator, Karen Flowers and Margie Johnson. Teresa Hogue, their data coach, was also there to help with any questions. You can view their work at http://www.mnpscollaboration.org/august-2-2016--jere-baxter-middle.html.
Finally, I wanted to mention West End Middle as we co-planned their workshop for August 2nd. Dr. Craig Hammond and Noelle Taylor used the collaborative inquiry process to engage teachers in conversations about the importance of building relationships with students.
If you and/or your school are using collaborative inquiry, please feel free to share it with us as we love learning from one another. Email Margie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org to share it.
