Weekly Launch

April 9-April 13


The first administration of STAAR is here! I know our 4th and 5th grade students are ready to show us all that they know! Please pay attention to the emails Suzi will be sending about STAAR. Please remind parents in your peek of the week that we are a closed campus for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday(we won't turn anyone away if they show up on Thursday)

Last week I shared with you about Jessica Delacruz and Kelly Wagner leaving us. I have two other changes to share. Gina Brown will be the full time SPED team leader at Armand Bayou next year. We will have a part time team leader. Her name is Jamie Garcia. She is currently a part time team leader at Clear Lake. She has helped us out a few times this year. We are definitely going to miss Gina next year and are glad we had her at least for this year!

My other announcement is about Sue Witt. She is definitely going to retire at the end of the year. She toyed with the idea of maybe staying one more year but her and her husband have found a beautiful house in Wimberley. We will definitely miss her!!! I know she is working closely with the technology department to find us a great replacement.

I forgot to give a shout out last week to Terri May during School Librarian Week! Thank you Terri for everything you do for North Pointe! We appreciate you!
