Sept. 7-11, 2015
We've had a great two weeks and things are off to a good start. It’s nice to see learning targets and students engaged in learning in your rooms. Keep up the great job.This year I’ll be trying a new format for the weekly update. So if there is something that I'm missing, please let me know.
I will continue to remind you in advance of school events and meetings for the month ahead.
We continue to have challenges set ahead of us, but they can be met. Value and believe in what you do, support each other, and care deeply for these children that come through our doors daily. I look forward to seeing great things this year. Thank you for all you do.
Have a fantastic week.
Sept. 15th is our annual college night at NSHS. We want to expand college night to a District Wide College and Career Day. What this will look like this year is:
Ask all teachers and students dressed in College Shirts or an appropriate career of their choice outfit.
On that day Dr. Burns will be signing an agreement with the President of UNT for all top 20% of junior class to gain automatic admission to UNT. We are not sure of the time (more information to follow).
I know you might already have activities planned for college and career information for students for later in the year. If you do please do those activities on Sept. 15th and also later in the year (never too much).
SNAP for all students: Oct. 20th &21st
Ellen will be at Rainwater next Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 3:00. Bring your class rosters, and you can set up your sessions and review how to work the MAP test, or learn if you are new to this.
Charlotte will meet with Math/Science teachers briefly after this training to discuss Math Night. Gina and Holly will also be here to discuss using Google Forms for Curriculum Night. The Google Forms would be for teachers to have parents input their contact information.
One last thing, when printing the weekly update, please print in black and white. It's expensive to print in color.
Food for Thought
End is not the end, in fact END is "Effort Never Dies." Likewise, if you get NO as an answer, just remember NO is "Next Opportunity", always think positive.
