ESSENTIAL SKILL FOCUS: TIME MANAGEMENT
NEW to the ARCTIC Zone this quarter is an Essential Skills 'gradebook' in Skyward and a quarterly essential skills focus. This quarter our focus is getting better at setting and meeting deadlines (time management). Students will be reflecting weekly with evidence on how they are improving this essential skill. Ask your student each night to see their Shark Tank to do list in their planners. Ask your student each night  to see their Passion Project half sheet with their weekly plan. Ask your student: What are you doing in other classes to get better at setting and meeting deadlines?

CHILL Time Planner Expectations

Many students are falling behind on their Flex Project (Shark Tank) and Passion Projects because they are not using CHILL Time + Resource + At Home to work on their project work. We cannot assign the same assignment for all students because they are all at different spots. PLEASE ask your student to see their planners nightly. They will have an advisor checked plan in their planners for project work during their CHILL Times, their Resource, and at home. Then all they need to do is follow through and complete their daily Must Do List. Thank you for your help!
