Titan Staff News

Week of March 16-20


Welcome back! I hope you all had a restful spring break! I know I rested more than I had planned. It's that time of year when the days become rushed and we are start the summer countdown. I encourage you to stay positive amidst the crazy spring schedule we have ahead of us. While we are look forward to summer, there are a finite number of hours we have with our students before the year concludes. Are you giving it all you can? Will our 8th graders leave prepared to be successful high school students? Will our students be future ready? Here's to making every moment count!


Important Information

  • If you are interested in being part of the Counselor interview committee, please let me know asap. I'd love to have someone from the 8th grade team to round out our committee.
  • Our staff has read 785 books thus far! Our campus goal is 1000 and we are well on our way! Be sure to email me your updates after this past break.
  • Summer travel opportunities....see additional information below.

Summer Travel Opportunities!

This July we will be taking a team of teachers to the Jostens Renaissance Conference in Orlando. (Yes, sunny Florida!) First dibs for those to attend will be extended to the staff on the C2G committee that Mrs. Myers created earlier this school year. Additional information and dates are found here..... http://www.jostens.com/educators/edu_svcs_lp_natl_conf_overview.html

In June, we will be taking the Tidwell AVID Site team to Dallas (not overnight) for training. This will include an AVID site team member from each content area, a counselor, principal and the actual AVID class teacher. If you are interested in being a part of the site team, please let me know. While interested parties will be considered, this will be an appointed team. Dates are June 22-24.
