Tiger Tidbits 2.0
April 2, 2017 Issue 30 Volume 9
Good luck to those running/walking in Kacie's Run on Saturday! And thank you to Mrs. Lupa and Ms. Nosek for for being our KR reps.
SNAP meetings are coming up in the next 2 weeks. Mrs. Lacy sent you a calendar invite and a schedule can also be found on the Google drive, Staff Handouts.
MAP Spring testing is just around the corner. Mrs. Herchenrader sent a schedule and a schedule can also be found on the Google drive, Staff Handouts, MAP.
Spring fever is spreading like wildfire! With warm weather upon us and TELPAS, part of STAAR, and the last round of MAP coming to a close, many students (and maybe staff?) begin to feel like the school year is over. Let's remember GRIT (a positive, non-cognitive trait based on an individual's passion for a goal or end state, coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective)! Our goals have to be met and we are the example students look to. Model for them how to finish STRONG!
Embrace the Near Win
In the midst of testing season, it's sometimes difficult to define success outside of test scores. This TED talk celebrates creativity and mastery.
Great sources abound in MAP! Check out his link to clarify any questions you may have about the various reports available.
