The Week of May 9th - 13th

Happy Friday,


Driving to work this morning I was reflecting on the week, the day ahead, and thinking about Kaye... This time of year, we are eager for Summer, getting a little less patient with each other and with some of our more challenging students.... I heard Kaye's positive words echo in my head... "I need to get back to the kids." "I love the staff." "I'm good, How is everyone there? How are you?" "I will be back as soon as the doctors will let me." I think while we wait for Kaye to return, let's challenge ourselves to be "a little more Kaye"! Kaye, I know if you are reading this, you hate it, but it is true! Approach each day with what we can offer others, what is good, show a little grace and patience..... Summer is coming but we have all been reminded, in a fierce way, not to sweat the small stuff. I adore each of you for what you bring to Beaty. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, and Happy Staff Appreciation Week!


Congratulations to Heather Schmitt! She was awarded a $1000 ATPE Grant for Educators! So proud! She went for it and got it!


Thank you to Jan, Elena, Bridgette, and Gerry for coming out on a Saturday morning to work the PISD Job Fair! Lots of eager candidates came out to visit!


If you are moving, you know by now. Everyone else can breath out! We will have all the logistics on the move to present to you on May 11th at the staff meeting. It will take all staff member participation and everyone will have a role to play. Please do not start packing or tearing down rooms. We have several weeks of instruction and learning to go. Everyone should stay focused on students and learning.


Thursday, May 12th, we will have a group here from Odessa, TX to tour and learn about our program. The building looks great, let's just keep it up!


Great American Clean Up is happening and we are partnering with Market Street. Volunteers will be here to spruce up our playgrounds, fill our sand tables, plant some flowers, power wash, paint, etc...! The dates will be Saturday 5/21 and Saturday 5/28 from 8-12. Please let me know if you are available to help supervise on one or both of those mornings!
