District Headlines & Features
Greetings TAF@Saghalie Families,
It is an honor to welcome each of you to the 2017-2018 school year! It is exciting to embark on this NEW experience together! We hope everyone is rested, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace all of the excitement and energy that this NEW experience has to offer!
In this inaugural year to support the slow merge of Saghalie Middle School and TAF Academy, there will be two principals serving this community.
Pam Tuggle will serve as the principal of the Saghalie cohort and Christina Spencer will serve as the principal of the TAF@Sagahlie cohort. Both of us are tasked with supporting the entire learning community and we will serve each family to the best of our ability.
We are so ready to get to know each family and build a strong learning community. This year will be a critical all hands on deck year! Our goals are to know all scholars and families, promote positive behavior through high expectations, and to build a strong learning community so that ALL scholars get what they need to find success each day.
It is important for us to note that ALL TAF@SGH staff are prepared to partner with ALL families to demonstrate our commitment to empowering the mind through STEM and project based learning and empowering the heart of the whole scholar through building authentic relationships. As partners, we share in the responsibility of ALL of our scholars’ success. Please know that each TAF@SGH staff member, each TAF foundation partner, and both principals are committed to supporting our scholars. It is our goal that ALL scholars will know that there are NO LIMITS to achieving success at TAF@Saghalie!
In addition, we want you to know that we whole heartedly believe that service is our most important role as a principal. As a result, we look forward to being collaborative and transparent partners who are willing to co-construct solutions to challenges and champion your successes. This year will have an increased focus on scholar outcomes and voice. It is our expectation that all scholars will learn to appropriately share their voice, respect each member of our community, and learn from one another because unity and mutual respect are a priority.
We appreciate your support. It is a privilege to be a part of this community and we look forward to connecting with you in the coming year!
Please feel free to connect with us at any point.
In partnership and service,
Pam Tuggle and Christina Spencer
