Sadler Means YWLA



It is also our intention to provide the girls with opportunities that inspire healthy living through activities such as our upcoming 5k Color Run.

The girls will practice for the 5k on two occasions, and the official Sadler Means YWLA Color Run will be held at the end of May. The only thing we are lacking for this event are the funds to purchase the color, and we need to put in our order by May 20, 2016.

Please consider donating to Ms. Carolyn Martinez's Go Fund Me page so we can keep this incredible tradition alive!


Date: May 26, 2016 (PM Schedule)

Plan: School-wide Dragon Fun Runs on May 13th & May 17th (practice)-PM Schedule for those TWO days.

Implementation & Set up: Student Wellness Champions and Volunteer Teachers

Participants/Eligibility: Students with good attendance, no referrals, cannot be in ISS or Harvest

Non-participatory students: will be kept and released from the gym.

Please email Coach Harris or Ms. Benson with any questions. Dresscode for Fun Runs forthcoming.

CAMPUS NEED- Environmental Science

Hello! The environmental science class will be upcycling ANYTHING WE CAN FIND!!! We are wanting to make sustainable art for the solar schoolyard that is visually appealing. The theme of our schoolyard is "Urban Garden of Curiosities" so nothing will be unusual! Right now we are looking for dishes, coffee mugs, glassware, ceramic ware, broken mirrors, marbles, glass beads... anything usable for mosaics. The girls are really looking forward creating something memorable!

Bring by 503 or take straight out to the solar classroom! THANKS!!!

Students Earn Jeans on Fridays


Reminder, if we have 30 or less dress code violations by lunch on Thursday, all faculty and students will earn a Jeans and College/Spirit Shirt day! Yay!


As you know, there is a strong connection between student attendance and academic achievement in school. It is important that students attend school each day. Students will be given an Attendance Letter on Tuesday, April 26th, from their M&M teacher.

In concordance with the Texas Education Code, which states “…students in any grade level from kindergarten through grade 12 may not be given credit or a final grade for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered.”

Students with below 90% in a course but who successfully completed Ignite will not have to attend Saturday School. Students who did not participate in Ignite and are below the 90% threshold for a course must attend 2 of the 3 Saturday Schools or 6 of the Afternoon Schools. More information about Saturday and Afternoon Schools is forthcoming.

Thank you,

Joanne Clark

Assistant Principal
