Get Whitt it!

If you call one wolf, you invite the pack.

Teacher of the year!!

Larissa Bray! You are loved! Respected! Chosen by your peers to represent our campus and we know that you will do it spectacularly!


You will also be our January teacher of the month for the Sachse chamber, so get ready to start this party early!

A beautiful game....

Please give your feedback from our staff meeting convo below.


PLC leaders, I have included the videos that we watched for your viewing pleasure.

PLC troopers!

Wanted to give a special shout out to this team of ladies who have given 6 full days to being a part of the PLC leadership academy. Tears, conversations, sharing...all with the intent of making our Wolves the very best they can be. I can't begin to communicate how much I appreciate their honesty, their professionalism, their commitment...to YOU and all our students. We are all the better for it!



(Please superimpose Teri Burnett in this pic, she had to leave before we took it!)

You know the drill...

We will be having several drills in the coming weeks. From fire to lockdown to evacuation drills...team leaders, please ensure your team knows what we do, so when it happens you will be ready. Talk to your students and let them know that we will be having these surprise drills as well.


Thanks!!



iPad action

Corey is making his way around to each teacher to update/change over your teacher iPad for you. Once he has done that, he has sent an email with the passcode information. You will also have to go into the settings and log out of the generic ipad####### account. Then you will be able to log in with your own personal account.


Other points to know/remember:

  • District apps can be pushed to any district owned device. That includes teacher devices. Teachers have the added ability to purchase their own apps if they so choose.
  • App purchasing procedures can be found here. Have an app you want? Let's get it!
  • Free apps that have come highly recommended or highlighted by our #URLearning team are preloaded in the Meraki system.
