A School to Emulate

Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 4-18 through 4-22-16

Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing!

As we move closer to the end of the school year, it's easy to lose focus of why we are here. Our students look to us to provide them with love, structure, and support. Remember that your words and actions have a major impact so let's remain hopeful and optimistic.

Many of you may have questions about how we will end the year with new leadership soon joining the Bobcats team. I plan to have all end of year duties complete prior to leaving. You will know your teaching assignments, classroom locations, and other adjustments prior to the end of my contract day. Also, Lorraine Shimizu will meet with the leadership team and parents on Wednesday, April 20th to gather feedback about characteristics you would like to see in the next principal. If you are not a part of the leadership team, please share your thoughts with your team leader to be sure your voice is heard.

Monday, Vlad will be joining the Specials team as the CTA. Let's give him a warm welcome and make him feel a like a part of the family.

The district is offering flexible PDH days for the 2016-2017 school year. Please click the link to learn more about how will affect you. The leadership team can also help guide you if you have questions. http://inside.pisd/campus/campus_services/documents/P-38FlexibleProfessionalDevelopmentHoursFAQ2.pdf

The district Recruitment Open House (ROC) is this Saturday, April 23rd from 9 am - 12 pm at Plano West High School. There is still time to sign up. Just click the link! Sara and I would love you have you join us. https://docs.google.com/a/pisd.edu/forms/d/1BWQpalaGVI5_O3Q8OTAjNzsfSNqBbE1lNwU58PACoU8/viewform

Lastly, remember that "unknown" district personnel will enter the building using doors other than the main entrance. They will see how much of the building they can access before being addressed by staff and escorted to the main office. We got this!

Thanks everyone and let's have a great week back!

That's HILARIOUS! Send your funnies my way...

In a small group in 1st grade, the teacher overheard a student say to another student, "You're going to give me a hears a stroke!"
