What a strong end to 2015! You all did GREAT this week with the administration of ACPs and providing quality instruction right up to the tests. Thank you for your commitment and flexibility during this past week. I know we are very, very eager to see the results when we come back from winter break! Until then, you have worked very hard since we kicked off the year together in August. Please take these two weeks to take care of those you love and also those we love -- this means you! See you in 2016!

Here are a couple of reminders for the week of January 4th:

Don't forget, the 3rd six weeks ends today. All grades should be entered into GradeSpeed. Please be cognizant of your failure rates and Dallas ISD Board Policy. If you have any questions, please ask myself or Mrs. Johnson.

Monday, January 4th is reserved for a Teacher Work Day. The day is yours to reset, plan, organize, clean, and... clean! Make the most of this precious, uninterrupted time! Come as you are and please sign in by 8:00 AM.
