From Your Captain

We want to thank our ALL-STAR STAFF for everything you do! We appreciate your early mornings, late nights, dedication, and love for our students. Together, as a POWER OF ONE, we are going to meet our campus goals this year and ensure success for every student. As a special thank you, we hope that you enjoy the treats we have lined up for you during the week. Don't forget that you can wear a **BONUS** jeans and school shirt on Monday!


We will be placing a survey in your box from the Mayborn Museum. Please return them to Ms. Connie. The first few surveys returned will receive free goodies from the museum.

Conscious Discipline

Weekly Commitment: I will take a deep breathe and be a STAR when I'm feeling upset.


Keep it going...just be a STAR and BREATHE!

The 3 Cs'

LOVE this motivational video about success. Our focus this week has to be on building student CONFIDENCE. We know they have the knowledge it takes to be successful, but they have to believe it. Take 5 minutes at the start of the day and show this to your class!
