Updates from Sarah Robinson!

Updates from Sarah Robinson:

1) Would you like to HOST an outing? Remember you are required to host or attend 2 outings for the year. Please consider it. Send sarobinson@k12.com an email with the bulleted specifics. No links to websites please. Keep your testing calendar nearby because we cannot approve any STAAR testing dates (first two weeks in May are off limits due to STAAR). Please give 30 days’ notice. If you choose an outdoor outing please include a plan B (specific details) in your email. Are you wondering if there are any families where you live? Log into the OLS and look under QUICK LINKS. Click on FAMILY DIRECTORY. Plug in your zip code and search 60 miles to see how many families might potentially attend an outing if you hosted it in your town. You’d be surprised, even if you live in a remote area. Our families are all over Texas!


-date and time


-maximum capacity if possible

2) Mentor Meet ups are a great place for new learning coaches to get their wings! Here are the dates for the rest of the year. A kmail will come to families on the day of each MMU with the link., 4/28/16, and 5/10/16.

3) We have an outing at Moody Gardens 4/22/16 that we are in need of staff support. Please consider attending if you live within 60 miles one way of this event. You can sign up here. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EYUbW7hqEB1ribUfqW_fTWM_9gH3rl7v08JlJi5ln0Q/edit?pli=1#gid=783999006

The TOPS High School graduation is on June 9th in Dallas. Since our staff is so small, we would like to enlist some help from our 3-8 team. If you live in the DFW area and can help our HS team out with graduation day, please contact HS Counselor, Maren Garza.
