September Update

Posted by Kim Willhoite on 9/5/2017 10:00:00 AM

Clear Creek Family,

We have been very busy this past month! Our students are now back and in full swing. They have learned and reviewed our procedures and received a booster in the 7 Habits. Here is more information about the 7 habits if you are interested in learning more about this program:

 As a refresher, here are the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:

  1. Be Proactive
  2. Begin with the End in Mind
  3. Put First Things First
  4. Think Win-Win
  5. Seek First to Understand then to be Understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen the Saw

We will continue to use these habits this year as we learn and grow.

I also want to share with you the Profile of a Graduate. Our district has recently finalized this document after receiving feedback from teachers, staff, parents, and community members. We are very excited to roll out this profile and allow it to guide our work over the next few years. As a district, we want to grow and build well-rounded students and the profile allows us to focus our efforts on a few key areas. Here is the website if you wish to seek additional information:

Domains of the Profile of a Graduate

  1. A Critical Thinker
  2. A Responsible Collaborator
  3. A Lifelong Learner
  4. An Effective Communicator
  5. A Global Citizen
  6. An Inspired Innovator

Lastly, later this month we will have an informational session on Standards Based Grading. I hope you will mark it on your calendar. I know there are still many questions about this grading system. That evening will be set up to provide you an overview of the system and allow you time to ask many of the questions you have.

Please follow us at on Twitter @clearcreeknews for updates, news, and reminders. Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way.
