2nd-5th Learner Surveys

CISD has designed a learner survey for each 2nd-5th grader to take. The survey is designed to gather input on kids' views of our schools and they social/emotional environment we are fostering. Each 2nd-5th grader must take this prior to May 27th.

2nd-5th Classroom Teachers, please find a time for your class to participate. It may be done whole group or a little at a time. Prior to beginning, please emphasize the importance of taking your time and reading each question carefully.

Thank you! The survey may be found below...

Building Redesign!

I have already noticed the work several of you have done to prep your rooms, clean our storage areas, and toss things we no longer need!

Please share any questions you have about the process with your Team Leader, and we can discuss them tomorrow afternoon at our Team Leader Meeting.

In speaking with several of you, I realized it might help to redistribute the "updated" classroom plans. I know many of you have questions such as, "Will I get a table for small group instruction?" or "Do I really need to send off ______ (fill in the blank)? I'm worried I won't have enough furniture!" These are all valid questions. Let me remind you, though. The new furniture is designed to replace our current furniture, not supplement.

I know it's tough to lose everything in your room and trust that what you will receive will be enough. Check out the plans below. Hopefully they'll help you see that what we're receiving will be enough and will be flexible to meet you and your kids' needs!

Summer Info / Shirt Size

Please take 15 seconds, and complete the Google Form below. This will help me in case I need to reach you this summer with the work in the building. Also, the district is going to provide us our Convocation shirts in advance, so I need to submit Austin's sizes. Thank you!
