LIFE PRINCIPLE OF THE WEEK--Optimism
""I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination."
TEACHER OF THE WEEK
Elizabeth Cain- Kindergarten Teacher
Chavez Elementary is a great place to be and I really enjoy the time I spend with my students here. I have been teaching for 21 years and have taught both Pre-K and Kindergarten, this is my 4th year at Chavez and my 7th year in Little Elm ISD. I grew up in Frisco and live there now with my family. My husband Chris works with the Geology Dept. of SMU. Our son Jacob is a broadcast engineer working with CBS television in Amarillo. Our son Tyler is a senior at UNT majoring in Environmental Science. I attended East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce). I enjoy traveling, doing crafts of all sorts and reading. Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach! "A police officer came up to me yesterday and asked, 'Where were you between 4 and 6?' I answered, 'Kindergarten!' "

Destination Imagination Awareness Meeting
SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2015
If your child is creative, is crazy about puzzles, loves to paint and draw, can build anything out of even just cardboard boxes, writes amazing stories, thinks up whimsical new worlds, has a flair for drama and acting, is totally into science, or has rewired your toaster into a working time machine (or wants to),...then you may have a Destination Imagination child.
Come and check out a new and exciting program in Little Elm for K-8 students: Destination Imagination (DI). We are looking to start a team on each Elementary and Middle School Campus and need parents and students who are willing and ready to take on a CHALLENGE!
Si su estudiante es creativo, esta loco por los rompecabezas, ama dibujar y pintar, puede construir cualquier cosa hasta con una caja de cartón, imagina mundos mágicos, tiene aptitudes de actuación y dramáticas, esta inmerso en la ciencia o ha intentado armar su tostador en una máquina del tiempo (o desea hacerlo)...entonces usted puede tener en casa un Estudiante con Destino Imaginativo.
Asista y participe de un nuevo y emocionante programa en Little Elm para estudiantes en los grados de Kínder a 8vo: Destino Imaginativo (DI). Estamos buscando iniciar un equipo en cada Escuela Primaria y Escuela Secundaria, para esto necesitamos estudiantes y padres de familia con deseos y listos para este ¡RETO!
WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!
Curriculum Night--Tuesday, September 29, 2015---6:00-7:00pm Prek-2nd Grade
Pre K-2nd Curriculum Night will take place on Tuesday, September 29. This will give our Pre K, Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade teachers the opportunity to communicate our Academic Curriculum curriculum expectations with our parents. Each grade level team will present an overview of the academic expectations for the 2015-2016 school year. We hope to see many of you there.
TACO TALK--Thursday, Oct 1, 2015, 6:30am--Cafeteria
It’s time to start thinking about flu season!
Fall is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about getting vaccinated for the flu! The CDC recommends getting your flu vaccination by October so it will have plenty of time to become effective by the time flu season actually arrives. It can take up to a full 2 weeks for the vaccine to become effective after you receive it. Call your doctor today and schedule an appointment to receive vaccinations for your entire family.
