Developing a community of leaders for a better world.

Things to know...

  • You will find an End of Year reflection in your box - please take a few minutes to reflect on this year. I will be setting up end of year conferences some time after we get STAAR behind us. Please jot down your reflections and hold on to it until we meet.
  • Here is the schedule for creating class lists (7:30-8:30):
  • 19th - First
  • 20th - Kinder
  • 24th - Second
  • 25th - Third
  • 26th - Fourth
  • Please have your class placement cards completed. We put testing grades on the last days so that you would have as much time as possible to get DRA's done - hope it helps!
  • Please help PTA by encouraging your kids to get excited and participate in the read-a-thon on Friday! They can get friends and family to sponsor them for reading - it will also be PJ Day. Thank you teachers for being flexible and supporting PTA - I know this is a challenge!
  • If you have not held student-led conferences - please make sure you have those completed before the 27th of May!
