Happy Friday Eve!


  • TTESS Refresher-If you did the online refresher, please put your certificate in my box. If I don't have one by Monday, you will be on my list for training Tuesday after school in the library.
  • TTESS GOAL and PD Plan-The first section of your TTESS, including your goal, is due on DMAC by October 8th. THANK YOU MRS. BARNEC & MRS. STEINBRUCK! I signed off and your goal is good to go once you sign off:).
  • Fire Drills-Unexpected Fire Drills, our procedures are great when we have fire drills that happen during the day, but last week we had one at a very unusual time! Some were at dismissal and some were following the drill procedures. Just for extra safety please always take your phone on your way out and partner up your kids (tell them to make sure the person in front of them is there when you go back in or something like that). This will help us keep track of students when a drill is chaotic, or God forbid, a real fire occurs. Thanks!

  • Thank you to everyone who completed the ESL Google spreadsheet. The next one will be due on October 12th.

  • Math six weeks test is October 1-5. Turn in scantrons to Hoover after you have gone over the answers with a black sharpie.

  • Mrs. Cristan will be meeting with all classes on Monday to discuss Student Code of Conduct through PE classes.

  • Please make sure to issue all transportation cards to the students, especially car pick-ups and walkers. The cards are our proof that the child was in the correct location after school.

From Mrs. Villarreal

  • Please place all Anger Management and Mentoring forms in my box. I have only received one so far, and I know I gave out more. Blank forms are still available n my office if you need to pick up some.
  • Please make sure all Anchored 4 Life Team LEADERS sign up for a TLC. I have six leaders that will rotate, so the others will need somewhere to go when they are not teaching the TLC.
  • Please email me the names of students that can benefit from participating in the Anchored 4 Life TLC. Anchored 4 Life is a program that focuses on social skills, facing fears, dealing with bullying, and maintaining healthy bodies. It will be run by our Anchored 4 Life Team Leaders. Only refer those students that do not have tutoring or interventions during TLC time. Also, keep in mind that this TLC is run by students, so they may not be able to handle certain behaviors. Anchored 4 Life TLC will begin on 10/9/18.

Watch D.O.G.S.
