Lockdown Drill Feedback

Good Afternoon Teachers and Staff,

First, thank you for participating in our LOCK DOWN DRILL. For the most part, the drill went well though there is still room for improvement. Here is some feedback:

  • Please ensure that your doors are shut and locked.
  • Discuss/review drill procedures with each of your classes before a drill happens, to maintain a quiet lock down drill process.
  • Teaching and NON-Teaching staff, please make sure you hide and remain quiet during a lock down drill, even if you are not with students.
  • All teachers should have a plan for their sub. Create a buddy system with your neighbor and plan ahead.
  • Please review the differences between: Lock Down Drill, Lock Out Drill, Evacuation Drill, Hold Drill and Shelter Drill.

Again, thank you for all your efforts in maintaining the safety of our campus!

Attendance Supports


As discussed in our faculty meeting last week, this is a reminder to be documenting phone calls home for students who are absent from your 2nd and 6th period classes.

There are resources such as a script and instructions for using eCST in the Crockett Staff 18-19 BLEND Course under Attendance Supports.

A new addition to this page is instructions for the Translation Line. Simply follow the instructions in the google form and a live interpreter will assist you with making phone calls.

Thank you for your support in preventing chronic absenteeism!

Tuesday AVID Advisory

As you likely are aware, February is Black History Month. To kick off this month celebrating Black History we will be utilizing the "AVID One Pager" strategy with our advisory classes tomorrow, Tuesday Feb 5th.

As always the lesson is in the CHS SEL Spring google folder, but here is a link to the SLIDE SHOW. Check out the "notes" section of the slide show for some clarification on what you and your students should do.

Students can create one pagers on paper using whatever supplies you may have in your room or a digital one pager like the example in the slide show. We encourage you to post your paper one pagers in your rooms and hallways.

Happy 2019 CHS Advisory Teachers!

We hope you enjoy this week-long opportunity to start fresh, and team build, with your respective advisory classes.

Here is the link to the Spring AVID/SEL folder in case you would like to star it in your google drive or pin in it your email. See me, or another SEL leader, if you need support in doing so.

Thank you and have a great Crockett day!

Sign Up to Use the Outdoor Classroom!

Good Afternoon Crockett Campus,

We have the amazing resource of an outdoor classroom down in the garden courtyard. Please take advantage of this space to utilize for your classes, which can be a nice change in scenery and use of the space that Mr. Lardon and I have worked hard to write grants for and his students to build the seating/ desks. Please take care of this space and have your students treat it with respect, you are responsible for your classes.

The link to sign up to use the space is here:

Please enjoy and feel free to borrow the key from me anytime! My classroom is right next door to the garden.

Library Sign Up

I'm sending this out again for the benefit of new staff, since we've added a few since September.

If you need to sign up to use the Box computer lab, or the library Main computer lab, please use this link:

Library Computer Labs 2018-2019

I also keep a Library Reservations calendar that you can view, but not edit. If you need to use space in the Library,check the calendar, then email or call me at 4-7844.

If you plan to use the Main Library computers and will also need the Non-Fiction section, just shoot me a note or call and I will reserve that as well.

Crockett Lady Cougar Basketball Update

Crockett Cougars,

The bi-district round of play-offs for our record-setting girls' basketball team has been set. We will play Boerne Champion on Monday, February 11th, at San Marcos High School, at 7:00. If you are able to make it to the game, please do!!! We would love any & all support!!!!!

I have attached pictures of our play-off shirts. If you would like to order one, please send your size and $21 per shirt to me, in room 243, tomorrow. This is not a fundraiser - we are selling the shirts at cost. I apologize for the short notice, but we have to order them by tomorrow, in order for them to be here in time for the first playoff game.

Another big game that we have coming up will be this Tuesday (2/5), against Travis. We have games at 5:15 (freshmen) and 6:45 (varsity). This is our last regular season game. Some of you may know Travis's coach, Heather Beadle, a Crockett Alum - I know she would love to see you all at the game! Also, this is our Senior Night. This will be the last time Kyra Burns, Jordyn Carter, Dee Dee (Diavionne) Gregory, Ray Ray (Iraijah) Jackson, and Aaria Rattler will play in the Crockett Gym. We will celebrate them immediately after the varsity game. I know Tuesday night is also Favorite Teacher Night for our excellent Girls' Soccer team and that many of you will be attending that game, very understandably! But, if the soccer game happens to be rained out or if you don't have other plans, we would love to see you at our game!

Lastly, I am attaching links to our most recent press releases, from the news stations and Austin American Statesman, in case you have not yet seen them:

Girls basketball team setting new record at Crockett High School in Austin |

AUSTIN, Texas — Twenty-eight wins so far. That's a school record for the Crockett High School Lady Cougars basketball program. "I feel like this team right here is making history,” said ...

Crockett HS girls basketball team breaking program records - Story | KTBC -
