Textbook Gaylord Information

They will begin shipping out Gaylords next week. When we receive our Gaylord, ONLY the items listed may go inside:

Grades 3-4 Social Studies

Grade 6 Social Studies

Art Grades K-6 (Teacher may keep one copy)

Music Grades K-6 (Teacher may keep one copy)

K-5 USED Envision and Investigation Math Consumables

Grade 6 USED Math Consumables

Grade 5 Social Studies will not go inside of the Gaylord. In addition, you may not fill the Gaylord with library materials, random teacher materials, unused or gently used consumable math workbooks, or any other materials other than those listed above. Before any books are placed inside of the Gaylord, you will need to get with Clarence, so that he knows exactly what you are placing inside of the Gaylord and how many of that item you are placing inside. He will give you a sheet to fill out with this information.

Kudos to. . .

  • Melissa Hassell and Lisa Evans for all of their help in setting up great events for Teacher Appreciation week!!!


EdcampHEB is coming!

Note: Everyone is welcome to attend, however, only PD credit will be granted. No stipend or comp time is available. J

We would love to see you at EdcampHEB on June 14!

We hear it all the time, “I wish we could just have a session where we could get together with other teachers from around the district and just talk about what we’re doing in our classrooms. I want to know what other teachers are doing to help their students.” So many times, teachers don’t need one more PD session, they need a chance to get together and talk about what is most important to them; instruction, behavior management, formative assessments, motivating reluctant learners.

Space is limited! Registration will open to out of district participants on May 3rd. Register before MAY 3rd and your name will be entered twice for the fabulous door prizes! (click here to see Door Prize donors!)

Happy Birthday to. . .
