  • October FedEx - Please register for the October FedEx session (see info below).
  • Bathroom Monitoring - Please make sure are monitoring learners going to the B/C bathrooms (both as a whole class and as much as possible independently). Because these bathrooms are getting lots of extra traffic, they are experiencing a little abuse... We won't go into additional info. ;)
  • 3rd-5th STAAR Supplemental Aides -Some of the rules for STAAR have changed. The RtI committee can now decide if a learner needs a supplemental aid on the assessment. Please review this presentation to determine supplemental aids that you might begin using with learners now.

Info Too Good To Miss

This info isn't necessary "Action Items" but just things I wanted to make sure to pass along!


  • Be sure to congratulate Mrs. Q.... She is the proud recipient of a $1,000 Art Grant from Burlington Coat Factory. Way to go Mrs. Q!


  • Long Distance Access - Several campuses brought up the concern of how inconvenient it is for educators to not have long distance access from their classrooms (especially given that it is parent conference "season"). After hearing the concerns, Mr. Hunt has agreed to add long distance to each classroom phone. I don't have the details on when it will happen, but I wanted to pass it along!


  • Homecoming Parade - If you are joining in the fun on Wednesday for our Wilson Homecoming Parade Float, feel free to wear jeans and a Wilson Spirit Shirt.

October FedEx

It's time for our 2nd FedEx session! Feel free to continue with a theme/idea that you started in September, or begin something completely new.
