Congratulations On a Successful Showcase!
Thank you, also, to each classroom educator for taking your class to visit and validate the work/time our kids put into their Clusters.
Please join me in thanking Liz for the countless hours she put into prepping such an exciting day!
H.E.B. Community Challenge "Preview"
You are familiar with the Living Well in Coppell campaign currently underway. There have been several city-wide events this year to engage the community in healthy activities. Mrs. Dobecka has been an active participant!
They next "layer" of this initiative is the statewide H.E.B. Community Challenge. This competition involves cities across the state coming together to complete various missions. A component of this challenge includes involving our schools. More information will be coming in the next few months, but I at least wanted to give you a heads up! Check out the following for more info:

Professional Learning on Feb. 16
The afternoon is a campus time, and we will spend our time focusing on Pre-Assessment, both in how it informs our learning design and as a beginning step of Curriculum Compacting. To truly design an afternoon of learning around our needs as a campus, I am seeking YOUR input.
Please complete the quick 2 question form (below) to add your voice in the design of that afternoon. Please complete it by this Friday, January 23rd. Thank you!
