Announcements

Thank you:

staff that were able to attend our staff caroling event! It was a huge success and we received so many positive comments from our community, Monclova families and district staff members. This kind of outreach and extra time on your part is why Monclova Primary is the best!


Fay for another fun and successful Wellness Day. Cardio drumming is so much fun!


Jill for being the best most caring dean! We are so happy to have you advocating for our students each and every day. Happy Deans Day!

Reminders:

An email was sent earlier this week to sign up for 2nd semester observations, formal and informal. Please send your dates and times as soon as possible!


The district technology survey was sent out this week. ALL staff members need to complete this survey. The information will only make our access to technology and services better. It also collects the information on the device you are currently using. This information is needed if you want a device update in the near future!


The 3rd graders will be performing Nutcracker for the school on Tuesday at 9:00 am. All are welcomed to attend to attend if interested.


Our staff meeting Wednesday will start at 7:45 am, breakfast will be provided. Most of the meeting will be time for you to relax and chat with your colleagues!


Our first day back from break is a Wellness Day, how nice to start back in comfortable exercise clothes! Fay sent out a sign up for the wellness activity.

Words of Wisdom and Action..............................


Ahhh, yes, alas we have made it to winter break with the end of the of the 1st half of the school year right around the corner! Thought this little poem was only fitting!


‘Twas the Week/Day Before Break


‘Twas the day before break, when all through the classroom,


Each creature was stirring; the teacher, too, I assume;

The students were antsy and moving here and there;

In hopes that the clock would move faster if they just stare;

The administration was nestled all snug in their offices;

With having visions of no calls about students from all of us;

And you in your holiday sweater and matching cap,

Just want to settle your brain for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the hall there arose such a clatter,

You sprang from your chair to see what was the matter.

Away to the door you flew like a flash,

Spun doorknob and moved the door with a crash.

The fluorescent light from the hallway gave off quite a glow,

You looked left and right to see what you could know,

When the noise that had traveled to your wondering ear,

Helped you realize that it was the bell that you did hear.

The end of the day really did come so quick,

It was just like a present from dear old St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles the students they came,

And they hustled and shouted, and you called them by name:

“Now, students! bye-bye students! Bye you wonderful children!

Bye, students! Do be careful as you leave this dear buildin’!

To the top of the hallway! to the top of the hall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

As papers and dust in their happy wake fly,

When they meet with their bus they jump in not shy;

And back to their houses with them the bus oh it flew

With all of the girls and boys, and their energy too—

And then, in a twinkling, I heard you so true

Your prancing and dancing to your door as you did shoo.

You got in your car without turning around,

Down the parking lot you and your car were home-bound.

The school, in your rear view got smaller by sight—

“Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night!”
