Medlin at a Glance

April 22, 2013

From the desk of Mr. Drewery

Happy Monday!

Good luck this week with testing! I know it is not the funnest 4 days of the year, but we have done it before and we can do it again!

The Medlin tennis team won the Northwest ISD tennis tournament. In fact, in the 10 years Medlin has played tennis, we have never lost to another NISD school!

As we enter the last six weeks of the year, please begin to reflect on the year about what we can do to be even better next year. The discipline, CSI/Homework, and duty station committees will start meeting next week. These committees will be one avenue for you to provide input as we begin planning for next year.

"There isn't a person anywhere who isn't capable of doing more than he thinks he can."
