The Texan Chronicle

All that Texan teachers need to know

Friday Morning Stats

We are switching things up a bit, sending this out on a Friday to get teachers what they need for the upcoming week. Need some get up & go for your weekend?
  • It is May Basket day! For those of you who don't know, May baskets are small baskets filled with flowers or treats and left on a friend's doorstep. The giver rings the bell and runs away. The receiver tries to catch the fleeing giver; if caught, watch out for a kiss!
  • On this day in 1961, Harper Lee won the Pulitzer Prize for, "To Kill a Mockingbird." Look for her 2nd book release, "Go Set a Watchman," to be released July 14, 2015. It is some of the same characters from To Kill a Mockingbird but later in their lives. So exciting!
  • Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby. Get out your hats and mint juleps for a great race!
  • Have a great weekend!

Davila Students Corner

Seen & heard this week at Davila:

  • Mrs. Blanco - "Our kids are getting some intense review before their next round of STAAR!"
  • Boys soccer plays at Sam Rayburn on Monday, May 4 from 4:30 - 7:30.
  • And on Thursday, May 7, Girls soccer plays at Sam Rayburn from 4:30 - 7:30.
  • "Hey all you Texan fans let me hear you clap your hands

    Now that you got the beat let me see you move your feet

    Now that you got the groove let me see your body move

    Say it louder, Say it louder

    Davila Texans got the power"

What you need to know for next week...

  • The Scholastic BOOK FAIR is next week. Students will attend a preview party during their ELA classes and return later in the week to purchase books. This is a great opportunity for our students. THANKS MRS LUNA for all of your hard work in getting this set-up & running!!!!
