Our 2022-2023 Goals:
Mav Time Needs- We will be checking in with our Mav Time Teachers often to see if they need anything. The requests will be discussed as they come in.
The Social Studies Team Needs—The Social Studies teachers met and provided us a list of items they needed. These items were approved and have been ordered to complete this goal.
Teacher’s needs for their classrooms. Project Based Learning materials as needed-Each teacher has a $200 Bank for the year, can be used as needed. We hope we can raise this amount as the year goes on.
Big Goal for the Year... Rock Walls in our Gyms! The Rock Walls have been ordered as of November 7th, 2022. The plan is for them to arrive before the Holiday Break so they can be installed over break! Thank You Mavs for making this possible!
