Good Evening Families,
The 2017-18 school year greets us with excitement across the campus. We welcome all new students and their families, as well as, all new teachers and staff. We look forward to every opportunity to “INSPIRE, CREATE and INNOVATE”, within our classes, clubs and activities, to assure that the Teague students develop Future Ready Skills.
Please join us on Thursday, August 17, for our Annual Open House. The evening will begin promptly at 6:00 pm, in the gym, for a short welcome and message. Families will then follow their child’s schedule, meet the teachers, learn about the expectations of each class and have an opportunity to meet other families. Families will also have an opportunity to join the PTSA, prior to 6:00 pm, and buy the 2017-18 Teague Spirit Shirt. Additional Open House information will be sent home with your child on Wednesday, August 16.
Also, please remember that School Pictures will occur on Thursday August 17 during your child’s Social Studies Class. Information will be sent home this week.
I look forward to working with your child and you, and invite you to become a volunteer at our school.
Debra Abbott, Principal
Dear Teague Families,
Summer break has been a busy time on our campus. The month of June provided academic and enrichment opportunities through participation in YMCA Camp, Art Camp, Band Camp and Summer Bridges Reading. All of these events allowed the students to sharpen their academic and social skills, all leading to a successful 2017-2018 school year. New students are enrolling, new teachers are being hired and new administrators have been selected to join me in leading the school. I am honored to welcome Assistant Principal Betty Rodriques and Assistant Principal Cynthia Woods to our Teague family. Both come to us with experience from other middle schools in Seminole County and each will be an asset to our students and community.
Our summer staff is working to have all aspects of the school campus ready for the return of students, teachers and staff. The interior rooms and hallways are being painted, the floors are being polished, schedules reviewed and books are stacked. Many of our teachers have been actively participating in professional development opportunities in preparation for quality instruction that includes differentiated instruction, blended learning, higher level thinking and student centered engagement.
I am excited to announce that the School Board of Seminole County has approved Teague for a new Program of Exploration. We will now be recognized as the Institute of Innovation @ Teague Middle School. The Institute of Innovation @ Teague Middle School aims to create an inspired, student-centered spirit in our school community. Our students will develop skills necessary to create their personal brand, to pursue their passions and to creatively solve problems. Teague will cultivate Future Ready Graduates who INSPIRE, CREATE and INNOVATE. An Innovation Lab is being developed to house the first course offered in the program. However, the theme to INSPIRE, CREATE and INNOVATE will occur campus wide. Details will be forthcoming.
Teague will continue to focus on the skills identified in the Florida State Standard, use data to inform instruction, consistently implement, with fidelity, newly adopted direct instruction strategies and provide exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students. In addition, we will build positive relationships that inspire and encourage all students. Instruction that is student centered, focused on standards, guided by data and grounded on positive relationship will assure that our students are given every opportunity to INSPIRE, CREATE and INNOVATE!
Teague cannot be completely successful without the support of our parents, families and community partners. It is our vision that parents join us in our efforts to provide students with a well-balanced academic and social experience. I welcome parents to help in the Media Center, hallways, lunches and throughout the campus. Please join us as we walk the halls, mentor students and model the behaviors expected on our campus. I encourage you to actively participate in PTSA, SAC and all events of the school. I welcome you to contact teachers, guidance and administration with questions, concerns and feedback. Together we will assure the success of all students.
I look forward to meeting you on August 2 during 7th and 8th grade schedule pickup (9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m..) and during 6th grade schedule pickup (1:00 p.m.– 3:30 p.m.- ice cream will be provided for incoming 6th graders). Also, please mark your calendars for Open House on August 17, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.
