A School to Emulate

Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 5-9 through 5-13-16


We have another awesome Field Day in the books. Thank you Kelly, Jason and the rest of the Specials team for making it a success. Everyone had ball.

This is STAAR week. Your hard work is paying off and we we will see it on paper soon. The building will remain secure during STAAR testing days and closed to visitors. After school meetings are your choice during the week of STAAR. All are free to leave at 3 ish after students are safely dismissed. Remember to wear appropriate, comfy clothes and silent shoes.

Sara and Lislia have been working diligently on the EOY folder. Everything you will need to know to close out the year will be available in the folder. Sara will share the folder with everyone later in the week.

We had a wonderful visit with Dr. Laredo. Sara and I shared some ideas about updates and Dr. Laredo shared his thoughts as well. We are still working on a few things and after STAAR Sara and I will share staffing and room locations.

We will celebrate Seema at the district Teacher of the Year Banquet on Thursday at 6:30 pm. Congratulations Seema and we are rooting for you!

Lastly, remember that "unknown" district personnel will enter the building using doors other than the main entrance. They will see how much of the building they can access before being addressed by staff and escorted to the main office. We got this!

Thanks everyone and let's have a great week!

That's HILARIOUS! Send your funnies my way...

The 4th grade students were coming in from recess and the teacher said, "Ok everyone, when we get inside of the building let's get focused because we are going to..." and before she could finish the sentence a student sang Rihanna's, "work, work. work, work work!"
