Monday Quarterback Edition, 08 February 2016

What a game!

Nothing like a former Aggie to make the first big play of the game happen to create a Bronco defensive touchdown. WHOOP! From Lady Gaga's National Anthem performance, which was very tastefully done, to the commercials and game, Super Bowl 50 was a fun way to end the season for American football. Now we're on the road to NASCAR, spring's FA Cup and Barclays, and basketball's March Madness. And of course, WE are preparing for STAAR to measure our season's success as classroom coaches. So, let's share our favorite commercials and game plays, lessons and activities, as we team up for the crucial push to our season finale.

TEAM ASSIGNMENT - For Monday's PLC, log into STEMSCOPES and build your classes. All students have been loaded into the program. Work together to create classes and add your students to your classes. We will use STEMSCOPES to assign activities and interventions as we continue to plan our 5th six weeks' units. Thank you in advance for having your students loaded into classes for planning this week.

Is your classroom, our students' home away from home, neat and orderly?

District Assessment Goal Setting

District Assessments are coming up this week, beginning with 7th grade on Friday, and 6th and 8th next week. Remember to goal set with students!

And the trend continues...

It's going to be a another baby boy for the SFA Science Department! Mr. and Mrs. Yezak will welcome their little man late June/early July. Mum and dad are still considering a name. Maybe Dr. Erlen Meyer can offer up a few names to choose from? ;)
