Ten Goals for this Coming School Year

I've already mentioned on this blog that I am a better starter than finisher - I do a better job of setting goals than meeting them, but here's what I am hoping for for this year.

  • I want to feel "settled" rather than pressured or hurried or "behind."
  • I want to have strong book fairs - $2000 to $3000 in sales or more for each one - so we can do some good things for the library and for our teachers (new carpet for kids to sit on in the library, maybe some more comfy seating, books for the library/classrooms, maybe some new TVs and an update of our media - we have so many VHS tapes still, etc).
  • I want to see at least 100 students meet their AR goal each quarter of the year.
  • I want to see at least 75 students meet their AR goal all four quarters of the year.
  • I want at least 80% of every class to be reading at grade level by the end of the year.
  • I want to end the year with all books cataloged, repaired and shelved (fewer loose ends at the end of the school year)
  • I want to achieve a rhythm by October than allows for personal time for reading and crafting and other personal pursuits in the evenings and on the weekends.
  • I want 100% of the third graders to pass the IRead this year, too.
  • I want to develop a regular practice of prayer and encouragement for my peers.
  • I want to recognize student birthdays all year.

I realize I only play a small part in some of these achievements, but I want to pray these things into being, I want to be part of the solution, I want to be an encouragement/facilitator for the teachers and the students as we pursue some of these goals.
