The Weekly Hoot

July 8-14, 2013

Greetings All -

I hope everyone had a great week and celebrated the 4th of July in a fun way! I just got back from Matagorda a little bit ago. Between there and the Frio I have had a full week of vacation, and it was GREAT!!

I am typing this up from home so I don't know where we are yet as far as rooms being completed and such, but I will update you all via email tomorrow.

The principals and Collaborative Learning Leaders are getting trained this week on the McRel Teacher Evaluation Model. I am excited to finally get down to the "meat and potatoes" of our new teacher evaluation system. You all will be getting training as well during our inservice days in August.

Speaking of August, please keep the evening of Friday, August 9 open. I thought it would be fun to have a before-school "get together" with everyone and their spouses because we have so many new faces this year. Amberly Kolby has graciously offered her family's camphouse for us to use. That is the only detail I know as of yet, but I wanted to give you all a heads up about the date so that hopefully everyone can make it.

Please go in to your Google Drive and update our "Favorite Things" page. I have added a couple of items to it that I need specific information on, so if you could do that at your earliest convenience, it would be greatly appreciated.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Stop by and visit us in the office when you can.

Soaring with you this year,


Owl Wings This Week Go To...

to our summer school teachers who helped the 5th graders get prepared for the 3rd round of STAAR testing. The scores should come in this week, and hopefully we have good news for all of those kiddos.
