We had another Great Week, Huskies!

Hi Parents!


Thank you for making Husky Spirit Week one to remember! Students and staff members dressed up each day and made our week awesome! We loved seeing your tweets and posts on Facebook.


The fun continues this week: It's Red Ribbon Week! Dress up days are below. We will talk to our students about being happy, brave, and drug-free. Thank you for your participation in advance. Our counselors have many great things planned!


We will have our first safety drills beginning this week. This is part of our normal campus operations. We will maintain physically distancing guidelines and mask-wearing during each drill this year.


Please note that next Tuesday, November 3 is Election Day. Many Alief ISD schools are polling locations so students and staff members do not have school on this date.


Sending you lots of positive energy!


Mrs. Johanna Sanchez

Principal

Create a Positive Vision!

This month we will teach students to set positive personal and academic goals as they become active participants in the learning process.


At Home Activity:

GOALS Acronym

1. Lead discussion about what each letter could stand for.

G- Gas up & Go for it! Set them and word hard to achieve your goals.

O- Onward & Ongoing...Once you meet a goal, you can always set more & constantly

improve to meet goals you have set.

Make predictions about what the other letters could stand for.


2. GOALS Acronym

Review what the G & O stand for & what it means to them.

A-Attitude is everything!

Have a discussion about how attitude relates to goal setting and goal keeping.


3. GOALS Acronym

Review G, O & A & what they mean.

L-Leave room for some fails.

No one is perfect and we may have set-backs, discuss how we move past fails.

S-Stay the course/Stay focused. If you’re the driver, stay on the right path towards

meeting our goals. Follow the lists you have made to make your goals a reality.


Quote:

“The goal is not to be better than anyone else but rather be better than you were yesterday.”

Reflect on this quote by Jon Gordon with your class. How could your students keep their focus on being better than they were yesterday instead of comparing themselves to

others?

COVID-19 Student Absence Policy

  • On-Campus Student Absences: If an on-campus student is absent for a reason that is acceptable to the administrator, the student can still earn the daily attendance credit by fulfilling the remote attendance requirement. A staff member will need to call the student about working in Schoology to be counted present remotely.
  • If a student is unable to attend school (including remote learning) because the student is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or because the student has been diagnosed with COVID-19, the absence is to be recorded as an excused absence. As with any medically excused absence, the student will be required to provide documentation.

Visitors

  • Visitors will not be allowed without an appointment. Visitors must wear a mask and will be screened before entry.
  • Visitors will not be allowed to eat lunch with their children. We encourage all parents to send student lunches in the morning with students.
  • At this time, we are not allowing cupcakes, snacks, or goodie bags for student birthdays. Teachers will work to make birthdays special in the classroom.
