Chavez Lobo Letter
for the week of February 8 --February 12, 2016
LIFE PRINCIPLE OF THE WEEK--Loyalty
" You don't earn loyalty in a day. You earn loyalty day-by-day."
Chavez 100 Days of School- Feb. 4th.
TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Jennifer Miller--Resource Teacher
I am super excited and honored to be named teacher of the week. This is my 8th year teaching at Chavez! I have loved every moment!! During the assembly one of the 5th graders asked me what I enjoyed most about being a teacher and my response was that it's different every day. I have opportunities to work with different students, teacher, and parents every day. It keeps me on my toes!
On a personal note my family keeps me on my toes as well. My husband, Gary, and I have been married for 12 1/2 years and we have two beautiful children, Jessica and Evan. Both of my kids swim competitively for LAC and are both active in scouting. We are also active in our local church.
I'm looking forward to having more wonderful moments during the next 3+ months until school is out!

PTA Reflection’s Art Forwarded to State Level!
Chavez two students, Megan Whittacre, a 2nd grader, and Channelle Kuria, a 5th Grader, created winning artworks that have advanced to state level judging! Megan’s entry “Nighttime Peacock” and Channelle’s entry “Let Your Imagination Fly” will be judged at state level in the next month. This is a wonderful achievement as nearly 60,000 students participate in the program annually and less than 3% of those advance to Texas PTA. A big Shout Out to these two special students on a job well done! Good luck to them at State.
