Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Happy Friday! In your experience, do you ever feel that some days seem to go by slowly and others seem to just fly by? That is how I am feeling as I write this article. I had a long Wednesday and Thursday, and can’t believe it is already Friday! 

As a member of the Bristol Recreational Advisory Council (BRAC), we had our monthly meeting last night and our focus was on Strategic Planning. We had an outside facilitator run the meeting and guide our discussion. Although we meet monthly, this was our first attempt, in a long time, to talk about the TTCC and its strengths and ways in which we want to see improvement. The facilitator focused our discussion around 4 questions: 
 What is right about the TTCC? 
 What is wrong? 
 What is missing? 
 What is confusing? 

It was a great activity and allowed our group to visualize through different eyes. As we spoke, the facilitator was able to formulate our thoughts into different groupings. She provided guidance in ways in which we can “tell our story”, “improve our wins”, and “develop short and long term measurable goals.” This meeting had me thinking about NHCS. So I am going to ponder my thoughts for a while and seek opinions from colleagues. But don’t be surprised that in the future, I will be reaching out to the stakeholders at NHCS and ask you to answer those questions. Another thought I had last night was that if we want our children to have a growth mindset, we as a school community need to have one and continue to strive to “improve our wins”. 

Have a great weekend!
