Nuts & Bolts

Building map for school year 2016-2017

Attached is the '16-'17 sy Wooten map. There are changes due to the reduction in units and staff moving to different assignments. If you are designated to move room, speak with Ms. Soriano and/or Ms. Moreno to procure boxes. Speak with Mr. San Segundo if you have any question(s).

Math Fluency Formative Loop

2nd-5th grade Math Fluency Formative Loop will not be run this week, due to STAAR Testing. We will resume the week of May 16-20

Prime Time After-school Enrichment Program

The last day for the prime time program is Wednesday, May 25. A note will be sent home in the coming weeks to remind the parents. A BIG THANK YOU! to Ms. Valdez and her team for working a tight budget to give our scholars a premier program.


This is STAAR Week and that means an end to tutoring. This is good, for our funds were running on vapors. Big shout-out to ALL the tutors from KG-5th grade. You are asked to contribute a great deal, and you always rise to the occasion.

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION: PDAS Summative for teachers:

Teachers, if you have not had a chance to accept/reject the PDAS summative, please do so by Tuesday. Mr.San Segundo sent his out Sunday May 1 & Mrs. Young sent hers out May 3-4. The PDAS delivery system has changed. The PDAS is now sent to your email for your review. Some staff have reported that it did not go to their inbox but to the clutter box. Please check your emails closely. The email has a link that permits you to enter the PDAS system to make a comment and sign the form electronically. If you have any question regarding rating contact your appraiser.

EoY staff checkout checklist & cumulative folder checklist

The EoY staff checkout & cumulative folder checklist have been copied and put in your boxes. Please read them carefully and adhere to the deadlines. The annual student cumulative folder party will be held Friday, May 27.

Grade Placement Committee (GPC) Meetings

Invitations were sent out to KG-4th grade teachers for the GPC meetings. If you have a scholar who may be placed or retained fill out the necessary documentation. The placement/retention form, artifacts, & CST need to be presented at the GPC meeting with Mr. San Segundo. Speak with Mr. San Segundo if you have any question(s)

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION: EoY Social Skills Improvement System (SSiS)

Earlier this school year, Wooten completed training for the new universal screener, SSiS (Social Skills Improvement System) part 1 & 2. As part of the training, teachers entered the individual student ratings from the SSiS into RBPs in eCST. This was done with Ms. Canlas & Ms. Nair during your planning period.

The EOY window for completing the SSiS universal screener is April 25th - May 20th. After data has been recorded in eCST, please collect all student protocols and give to the literacy coaches (Ms. Carrillo-Magana PK-2 & Ms. Rivera-Dreier 3-5)

Directions for completing EOY SSiS

1) Rate students in all four domains using the same SSiS protocol

2) Use a different colored pen/marker

3) Enter SSiS EOY data into original RBP by adding EOY dates for all four domains

4) School contact adds completion date to google doc when all teachers have completed EOY screener
