PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continue ...
I am finally back after my time in Florida and Baltimore and I have to say it seems like I have been gone forever. I have been spending a lot of time going through the classrooms checking in with the students because I have truly been missing seeing them in action. It's been a bit of a struggle to get out of my office this year due to meetings and planning and one thing on top of another. My goal this second half of the year is to spend more time outside of my office than in. Who knew that year 2 had twice as many meetings and paperwork as year 1? Maybe last year I was just oblivious to the fact. Ignorance is bliss.

The other major event coming up is Ground Hog Day. On February 2nd Punxsutawney Phil comes out of his very luxurious hole. If he sees his shadow it means six more weeks of winter, if he doesn't then that means summer is right around the corner. I am not sure if good ole Punxsutawney Phil understands greenhouse gases or El Nino, so I guess we will all just have to wait and see. It is truly an awesome day and make sure you check it out on Feb 2nd.

That's it for this week's edition, stay tuned for next weeks edition when the Principal Chronicles continue ...

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.
 

 

The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
