Super Star News Update

February 8 - February 12

“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”
“Come to the edge.”
And they came.
And he pushed them.

And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire, 1880-1918
French Poet, Philosopher

Hunt's Corner

Thank you Ginny for taking the lead in making this week special for our very own School Counselor, and to all who pitched in to show your appreciation and help our students to understand the services and support available to them. We love you, Mrs. Tyre!!

Items to Note

  • Penny Drive continues through February 12! Thank you for encouraging your students to continue to meet our community needs, with happy hearts and a giving spirit. Our campus goal is $750 towards the Crowley House of Hope. As of Wednesday afternoon, we have raised $35.
  • Kindness Celebrations: In addition to being the last day for our Penny Drive, February 12th is an approved waiver day for food on campus! While not all of our students celebrate Valentine's Day, we can certainly continue to celebrate kindness together! Please remind students that if they choose to bring gifts/cards, they need to bring for everyone. If your grade level chooses to invite parents, please let the office know in advance so that we can prepare accordingly. Ms. Lorena can provide heavy-duty trash bags at your request. Thank you! :)
  • Safety: Thank you for putting your heads together and providing creative ideas and input for safety in our common areas, specifically the Science Lab. As you know, we must keep all doors locked and closed at all times (magnet may be used). Based upon your feedback, keys have arrived for each of our Grade Levels. When you need to access the Science Lab, please see your leader! The Computer Lab continues to be accessible through card access. Please help us to ensure the computer and science lab doors stay locked on the 4th grade hall, as well! As always, whenever you leave the room, please check the lock behind you. If you have doubts or encounter a problem, Ask! :)
  • Data Digs: Thank you for coming prepared with data and details to our meetings. Your knowledge of our students and determined, strategic support for each and every child is the reason our school is the Best. Keep up the great work!
  • Don't miss the Town Hall opportunities to hear as Dr. Powell shares the vision for CISD, specifically Programs of Choice. If you are interested in learning more and/or sharing ideas and concerns, I encourage you to participate.
  • Early Release February 19: Please see the attached Early Release schedule, which we will use for early release days throughout the year. The afternoon sessions (Staff Development) will vary according to campus needs. Hopefully, this will provide a basic framework for you to use when planning your schedules on these days. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback!
  • Staff Meeting Topic: Social Bids, by Jon and Elizabeth. It all begins with Relationship!
  • Beth, thank you for sending your students to lead us in Announcements this week. We're looking forward to hearing from Sandra's class!
