A School to Emulate

Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 3-21 through 3-25-16

Four-Day Week!

We had no inclement weather this year and as a result there is no school on Friday! I know that everyone will continue to work hard over the next four days and then enjoy the long weekend.


This Monday is the final admin PDH for session 1. We will begin session 2 on April 4th. The dates are (4/4, 4/18, 5/2, and 5/16). We currently have only 2 facilitators for session 2. If you are interested in facilitating a session please email to let me know. You can click the link to sign up to attend a session. https://docs.google.com/document/d/10I_3tgUvUmWEroaFYP9m89dGhj6_r5VvwploxCBqjds/edit


Sara and I will continue to meet individually with 5th grade students this week. Thank you all so much for stepping up to write encouraging letters to our 4th and 5th grade students as they prepare for STAAR. Your response was overwhelming. There are still a few students you can select so if you haven't already done so, here is the link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16Z8ADCE34hcFEEYB4bJVgedLjM0CI2EyDoPm1-OlG-s/edit#gid=100615272


We will not have Bobcat Visioning this week. Lislia will need to meet with grade level teams about summer school applications and Jennifer E. will need to meet with grade level teams about STAAR testing & security. Please use the time as you see fit.


Lastly, remember that "unknown" district personnel will enter the building using doors other than the main entrance. They will see how much of the building they can access before being addressed by staff and escorted to the main office. We got this!


Thanks everyone and let's have a great week back!

That's HILARIOUS! Send your funnies my way...

A 1st grader said he could speak 3 languages, so when asked what languages he speaks, he replied, “The one I’m speaking now (which was English) and English and Spanish.” Then he proceeded to say the only Spanish word he knew: “hola.”

Kudos

Jennifer E. for working through all of the issues with TELPAS and helping to make our testing week successful. Clara, Carmen, Cecilia, Helen, Lislia, Marisa, Veronica C., Bev, & Anna for welcoming our upcoming kinder families and making Kindergarten Round Up a smooth process. Charles, Elizabeth, Deanna M., Dorys, & Carla for doing an awesome job in our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) video. Your great work will be shared with the Board of Trustees.
