Team Molina,

We celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week this entire week! On behalf of the Molina Support Team, Rita, Alexandra, Cris and I, we wish all teachers a week filled with fun surprises and expressions of gratitude for helping students realize their dreams!

Continue to be hyper-focused on three main priorities at your schools:

1. Quality Instruction - I will be conducting random spot observations at all schools. Please be highly vigilant in reviewing lesson plans to ensure that new TEKS are being taught. This is the time of the year when teachers tend to "spiral in" TEKS that need to be re-taught and may not have time to cover new ones.

2. Student interventions/Progress Monitoring - I will verify the quantity and quality of student interventions, i.e. After school and Saturday school attendance documentation sign-in sheets, tutoring lesson plans, quality of intervention resources, etc.

3. Action plan mapping - I am excited to witness the mapping strategies you're using to involve your campus staff in mapping out the remainder of the Spring semester priorities and mapping your school priorities for 2016-2017.

Thank you y mil gracias!

Mind Works Donation to Cochran Elementary

Mind Works has donated once before and with that donation was an abundance of school supplies, educational games for the students and supplies for the art teacher.

This donation consisted of more school supplies , games and books for the classrooms and library.

The church that has helped to get this going is the Gathering Church on Furlong just down the street from Nancy J Cochran. Mr. and Mrs. Marco Luna have done so much for the school. Not only have they volunteered their time and energy to the school but working alongside in getting donors like Mind Works to donate the school supplies to us. Also, another get connection that they have supplied the school with is Food for the Soul. This is a backpack program that helps our students be able to have something to eat on the weekends.

Kudos to Cowart CIC, Ms. Tamez!

Last week AFs were able to collaborate on, provide feedback to and observe implementation of SSI plans. Ms. Tamez did an exceptional job at providing intervention support to her campus with an engaging, focused small group reteach sessions. While it is always ALL HANDS ON DECK across our feeder, Ms. Tamez' material creation and coplanning with teachers deserves major KUDOS!
