Each Building’s Initial Plan…

“The most effective leaders use practice as their fertile learning ground…they try to figure out what’s working and what could be working better…the best ideas are potentially right under our noses…we need to start with our own work.” Michael Fullan

“Ask not what your teammates can do for you. Ask what you can do for your teammates.”

Magic Johnson
