Meet the Principal

Jill Hoppe, PrincipalA Message from the Principal

November 2019

Dear Cougar Families -  
I would like to update our CRS community as we usually have our state letter grade by this time. We are projected to learn of our rating sometime this month, which is later than usual. We are looking forward to receiving this information as we have been focusing instruction standard by standard for each student.

Professional Learning Communities allow our teachers to talk about data, instruction, assessment, student progress, interventions and enrichment. We will use benchmark assessment data to design instruction personalized for each student. We value a strong home-school connection as it takes a village to educate our extraordinary students. 

The month of November brings a plethora of events that makes this time of year so much fun.  
  • Dysart Dash - Saturday, 11/2 @ 9:00 a.m.
  • NEHS Induction Ceremony - Thursday, 11/5 @5:00 p.m.
  • Toy and Blanket Drive - 11/12-12/6 
  • Veterans Day Commemoration Ceremony - Friday, 11/8 @ 8:30 a.m. 
  • Thanksgiving Meal Lunch - Thursday, 11/21 during lunch
  • Spelling Bee - Monday, 11/18 @ 8:30 a.m.   
  • Cross Grade Level STEM Collaboration Day - Tuesday, 11/26 all day
We continue our work with the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This month we are focusing on Habit 4, Think Win-Win. Think Win-Win isn't about being nice, nor is it a quick-fix technique. It is a character-based code for human interaction and collaboration.  Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one. Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying. 

The Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP), outlines the goals we are working on achieving this school year. Last month we shared academic goals but in order to achieve those academic goals, we need to ensure a safe learning environment. We are using responsibility cards school wide so that all students use the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, develop a growth mindset and implement Restorative Practice as evidenced by reflection on a personalized Responsibility Card.

We have so much to be grateful for, specifically the incredible support of our families. We are a school with extraordinary students, staff and families! We continue to be inspired by #AskMeMyWhy to meet the needs of all students. 

 Have a YES! kind of month.

Jill Hoppe,
