180 days

This is geared more towards high school but definitely adaptable to middle school. It's energizing and inspiring and affirms the need for teachers to have freedom, flexibility, and creativity in their work (and that this trust and freedom is tied to observation that naturally connects to authentic "data-driven" practices.) I also find the framing of: "what do you want to do in the 180 days you have with these students" to be poetic and helpful.
