Grateful for...

Thank you to the group of 9 who showed up with pep in their step to help decorate the cafeteria for our students. The kids LOVE it!

Thank you Mr. Mann, Mrs. McBride, and Mrs. Watkins for all the extra hard work in making science night a success. Over 325 people attended and much interest was peaked in the science around us.

Thank you Mrs. Coston for all your hard work on getting the carnival ready. She has been working countless hours to get the final details in order.

Thank you Mrs. Le for coordinating the basket efforts. Please send her a print out of what you want to be auctioned off for (example lunch in the courtyard, trip to movie with the teacher, teacher for the day, etc)

Thank you for the excitement and positive energy you are spreading in the morning. We love the music in the hallways and mini celebrations in classes.

Thank you for the highly engaging lessons and relevant learning. From the the dart gun activity in first grade, the 2nd grade self blogging biographies, the 4th grade Texas Native dress/performances, Cancel Cancer project, all the way to the 5th grade shirt design project. Students are excited about the learning tasks they are having to do and parents are very complementary!

Social team for uplifting and decorating the workroom, bathrooms, and lounge!

Most of all thank you for your hard work and dedication to our students. It is noticed and very appreciated!

Reminders and Focus

  • 6 hour Gifted Training Update due by December 31st
  • Continue to build strong, positive relationships with all the students. Smile often. Choose to see the good and positive. Focus on growth and celebrate often. Nothing is more helpful in the learning process than the effects of trust and joy.
  • Our goal is to be level 3 (or moving close to it) in most areas on the district rubric for TEKS centered teaching. I have seen many great examples of students interacting with the TEKS in class. Be sure to not only post them, but have discussions so that students understand the goal of their learning.
  • Reading Workshop at 100% implementation is our highest priority in curriculum. We will have some PD on our priorities in order of importance at the faculty meeting this Monday.
  • Guided Reading groups should be in full swing. Meet with low groups 4 times per week, low/medium 3 times, medium and high 2 times. Special Education students should be part of both your Guided Reading Group rotation & TEAM Time interventions
  • Rigor, relevance, and engagement strategies should be focus on when planning for learning
