Chat Room: Brisk Picks

Jerenda Cox of North Forney High School in Forney, TX, fashioned an idea based on the movie “Up” to share where NHS seniors are heading after they graduate. Each student submits a Google Form which tells the adviser where they intend to go to school and what they intend to study, along with a picture of the senior with their college or university’s acceptance letter, T-shirt, or other school memorabilia. Once a form is turned in, the senior’s post-high-school details and images are posted to an eye-catching hallway bulletin board. For more ideas like this, check the Resources section of your Adviser Online Community.

It’s that time of year again—time to take the LEAD and energize your leadership teams. From November 3–5, NASSP will host its first LEAD Conference of this school year in Orlando, FL. Whether you’re there in person or in spirit, follow #LEADFL for all of the excitement and activity.

Last October, hundreds of students, advisers, and schools expressed their appreciation for their principals on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with #ThankAPrincipal posts, and this year’s National Principals Month is positioned to build on that idea. Videos, photos, and letters are already being shared showing grateful and surprised principals all over the globe. Show your principal how much they mean to you this year by sharing your gratitude online!
