CUDOS

Hope everyone had a FABULOUS SPRING BREAK!! It was a BUSY one for me.... I need another week.... please??


CUDOS to 4th grade for the AMAZING hallway decor to support and encourage our 4th graders as they approach the upcoming Writing test! If you haven't been by, check it out!


CUDOS to everyone who helped to organize the special day for our custodians and cafeteria staff! We don't take the time to thank them enough for all they do daily to keep bellies happy and clean up when bellies are not happy!!


CUDOS to everyone who helped with Rona's send off! I know she is so excited to start this phase of her life, and the party was a very nice finale for her.


CUDOS to ISABEL COOPER for working so hard to be prepared to take over for Rona to finish the school year on our 2nd grade team! Please, please, please stop by to welcome her and see if there is ANYTHING she needs!! This is a tough time of year to walk in, and we want her and her students to have a successful end of year!!

COMPLETIONS

Grade sheets will be printed for verification tomorrow (Monday). Please sign and return to Rosie by 3:00pm. We will need your reports for the honor's assemblies by Friday at noon. These are easiest to complete when you have the report cards in your hands rather than after you've already sent them home!!!


Please get with Kalisha to schedule any SST's for students of concern. You should have already met with parents of any students you think need retention.

CAUTIONS

We have changed Amy's schedule due to some needs for math intervention in upper grades as STAAR is fast approaching. She WILL NOT be pulling groups on Mondays for now. She is working with our STAAR test classrooms to do instruction on Mondays. We will let you know if she goes back to the old schedule. Please do not send your Monday kids to her.

CLE Cares

Please keep Frances Soechting (one of our best subs) and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Her 27 year old son passed away on Monday. I will get a card to have in the office if any of you would like to send her a note of condolence.
