TELPAS - Don't Wait To Start Writing!

I hope your TELPAS writings are going well so far. Remember not to wait until the last minute- it's inevitable that someone will be absent! I have added a list of TELPAS Resources to the District ESL page in case you need them- from PLDs to rating tips, writing prompts, 2020 manuals, training videos, etc. Here is the link:

Let me know if you have any questions,

Nuts and Bolts

Teacher Leave - To remain consistent with all other SISD campuses we will use the following rule when needing time off during the school day: If you need to be gone for longer than an hour during the school day you will need to take a 1/2 day off.

Behavior Screener Due Friday, February 21st.

Food in the Classroom - Students should not be bringing food into the classroom, this includes eating lunch in classrooms.

"Rep Your College" Door Contest!

WHAT - We are excited to bring back for the 2nd year our "Rep your Alma Mater Door Decorating Competition!"

WHEN - Judging will take place February 28, 2020, @ 1:00 PM


  • This competition has been designed to engage school staff and students in activities that promote positive community engagement, as well as college and career access and success.

  • We encourage all SHS faculty and staff to participate.


Winning a prize is determined solely based on the highest scores achieved under the Judging Criteria (as defined below). Judges will review each Entry and three winners will be selected based on a composite score using the following criteria:

  • Originality ( 50%) - Originality will be judged based on the uniqueness, inventiveness, creativity and original thought of the door creation.
  • Workmanship (30%) - Workmanship will be judged based on the quality, neatness, and attention to detail given in creating the door decoration that represents your alma mater.
  • Use of Information (20%) – As the door is decorated, consider the facts about your alma mater that would convince students to attend!
  • You may share a door with a fellow faculty member.

"You don’t have to do a TikTok for them. You don’t have to rap for them. You don’t have to be a comedian for them. And you don’t need a creative handshake for every one of them.

Just take pride in your teaching, genuinely care, and be committed to the success of every student." ~Danny Steele, Educator
