April 18-Get Whitt It!
we are sad.
we are proud,
we are sad.
we are excited for you.
we are sad for us.
Congratulations on being named as the PK-K literacy learning specialist!
We will not meet as a PLC on May 8, 15, 22nd, due to #allthethngs. We know you have a LOT on your plate in MAy!
More STAAR...Sigh :)
We will review math and reading STAAR stuff in PLC on 4/24. Please come ready to talk groups. Please bring your spreadsheet of accommodations for your kids so you can double check my master list. Also come ready to discuss if you have anything (as far as grouping) you recommend we tweak for the next round!
4th (and maybe 3rd) Grade Teachers:
We will have some visiting 4th grade teachers from Royse City on 4/18 that want to come see you in action! I think they are primarily coming to see ELAR, but I make no promises they won't stop in and see math, too! Thank you for letting them come over and learn from you guys! I told them they can pop in some 3rd grade rooms too, if time allows!

End of Year Reminders...
Do you need to restock your first aid kit? Let me know if you need bandaids, mints, passes, etc.
This is not the ark and I am not Noah....please do not send students 2x2 to the clinic. :)
Please know that I appreciate your help in playing "triage" in the classroom! I know you are hearing a lot of complaining right now with the increase in allergy symptoms and excitement for the upcoming summer break....hang in there!!
- First grade team for stepping up and working with Aldrich's reading groups while she was out with sweet Landry!
- From Ms. Matthews: Just wanted to follow up with what I shared about Mrs. Filip and Mrs. Leech and how much they’ve done for my students this year. They have both gone above and beyond in including them, supporting them, encouraging them, standing up for them, inviting them to extra activities, and so much more. It has made SO much of an impact on them this year, and I appreciate them both so much. :)
- Lisa! When you didn't have students, you still manage to check in on our nursey nurse and ensure she is ok and has a lunch!
- Sheree, you ALWAYS help with 3rd grade WIN time, helping with coverage and #allthethings.
We are getting new carpet this summer! To make it easier on the carpet people, we will need to have all of our things up off of the floor (except furniture) when we leave on May 24th. If you have books on a bookshelf, please box them up and put them on your back counter. Also, there shouldn’t be anything hanging on the walls lower than 3 feet from the carpet. If you have personal furniture (bookshelves, other shelving systems) they will either be moved to your counter, or to the cafeteria. Please make sure that you label them with your room number so that they get back to you! If you have any extra special personal items, it might be a good idea to take them home for the summer so that they stay safe. We are lucky that they are doing this during the summer – some places have to pack up and move during the school year! Can you even imagine?!?
