October 31 - November 4
We have so many things to be thankful for this week. Our UNT Field trips were outstanding! It was such a great experience for our kids and we accomplished our goal of planting those seeds that their expectation should be to go to college one day.
Thanks Mrs. Lane and Mrs. Malone for stepping in on Tuesday to take the reigns of the trip without an administrator for the 4th grade trip. They both took charge and didn't leave a single kiddo behind :) I have no doubt that it was team effort with the other 4th grade teachers and staff. They are such a tremendous group!
Needless to say I need to thank Mrs. Nisbett for putting it all together for us. Even though she was sick, she had everything so well organized and prepared ahead of time that she just pointed us in the right direction and we were good to go!
Thanks to Mrs. Lovick who filled in on Wednesday with the 5th grade on short notice. I also have to give another shoutout to Mrs. Lovick for organizing our Red Ribbon Week. I think all the kids had a good time and understood the message about being drug free. I also want to thank Officer Raines for coming out and speaking to the kids about the dangers of drugs and bullying.
Thank you Mrs. Prado for going ALL 4 DAYS!!! I have no doubt that she was exhausted but she never complained once and was always so positive about it. I truly appreciate what she does and what she does for us everyday here!!
Thanks again to Galen for working through our sub jigsaw puzzle this week and making sure all our classes were covered. It was definitely a wild week with a lot of moving pieces but she made it work.
I do want to thank each and every one of you for making this week as smooth as it could be! I just don't think I could say it enough that we have such a tremendous staff here and are truly a family that pulls together to overcome any challenge that's thrown our way.

What is Academic Lab?
Students can work on homework or get extra help in any subject
Students can also use this as UIL practice time provided they have the materials they need
3:30 - 4:15
FOCUS time changes ahead
We are also putting together an intervention resources menu that you can pull from to help create your FOCUS lessons as well. Like with any change it's going to take time to get into a routine with it but once we get our process down it will definitely benefit our kids.
