Commit to Excellence
In planning for the next school year I would like to take a core group of teachers to the Eric Jenson Teaching with Poverty in Mind 3 day training in San Antonio in July. As a part of on-going learning, I believe this will benefit our students tremendously. I have had several teachers respond. If you are interested, please let me know ASAP. I will take as many as we can afford. If we sign up early, we will get a discount and may be able to take more.
Thank you to Mrs. Miller for her assistance in fourth grade on Friday!
Thank you to Mrs. Rossman, Ms. R, Mrs. Greenlee and Mrs. Saenz for participating in Erin's Lanyards on Saturday morning. What a great cause for our students to be involved in.
I encourage each of you to attend the collaboratives that are provided by the instructional coaches. They will be adding more content areas. Also, your coaches are a great resource for planning!
Please remember that grades should be input weekly so that parents and students are clear on how students are doing throughout the 6 weeks. Please refer to grading guidelines if you have questions.
- It's time to change out student work in the hallways. Student work is a reflection of the expectations at Henderson. It makes kids proud to have work up in the hallways. Please make sure student's best work is up and it represents the high caliber of work that students are producing. Please have new work up by Friday.
- The book fair and parent night have been changed to the week of the 16-19th. Please adjust accordingly. Parent night/performance and art show will be on the 16th.
- The next Platicas meeting for elementary bilingual and ESL teachers is February 1st.
Congratulations to Alex Bryant, Teacher of the Month for February!
