Staff Meeting

No Staff Meeting today. We will be meeting on January 30th for our Fun Run Staff Meeting!

Island Bus Routes

They are changing on Monday and will be moved to the back of the line. I will send you any changes but be aware for your island bus kiddos.

YEARBOOK PICTURES-UPLOAD NOW!!!!

PLEASE USE THE LINKS BELOW.

Please upload your pictures by when they were taken. This seems to be the easiest way for me to organize them into groups for the yearbook. I've given up on slideshow becasue very limited number of teacher upload picutres monthly. BUT my first yearbook deadline is quickly approaching and I NEED YOU TO UPLOAD THE PICTURES YOU HAVE NOW!!!!


MAKE SURE OF THE FOLLOWING:

**STUDENTS YOU UPLOAD CAN BE IN THE YEARBOOK.

**YOU HAVE THE PICTURES IN .JPG FORMAT (NOT .HEIC-this is the format many iphones use-follow directions below for conversion or to avoid taking in this mode.)


Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible (see attached video). This will relieve you of the conversion step.


Or watch this 30 second video. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y_oyIO3NMqZoo9EtQGrk7z7RwdAJ_lAr/view?usp=sharing

The folders above and additional "year long folders" like Watch Dogs, Jazzy Bees, P2 Project are here.

Music Program for Second Semester: Very Important 4th Grade Teachers

Mrs. Williams will only have 6 weeks to teach and put on the programs for Texas Public Schools Week. It will be very important for her to have the lab kids at TLC to teach the songs because this will be the ONLY time they can become familiar with them. Also, Tutoring pull-outs during this first six weeks during music time should be avoided. Since she only see them twice a week it is very difficult for them to learn the songs up to performance level if they are not present.

Oral Administration Guidelines

From Mrs. Villarreal


  • Teachers, when referring for Dyslexia, please include written samples from your student. These samples need to be dated and should include all subjects. If you need help with copies, let me know. We need these samples to support the testing scores and they can help tip the scale when results are not so obvious.
  • Please make sure to enter into DMAC testing all testing accommodations, tutoring data, etc.
  • As you may know, I was out all last week, so I am trying to catch up on things. I appreciate all you help and support. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
