A School to Emulate
Memorial Elementary Bobcat Bulletin 3-28 through 4-1-16
STAAR 4th & 5th Grades
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend and you are ready to be back. This is a big week for our 4th and 5th grade students. They will be taking STAAR! The staff has done and continues to do a phenomenal job of preparing our students. This week be sure to offer additional kind words and/or words of encouragement to the 4th and 5th grade staff.
This is a reminder that everyone is free to leave at 3 ish (after students have been dismissed) this week. Also, wear SILENT shoes and comfortable clothes (appropriate for school). This will allow us to provide the best possible testing environment as we can for our students.
On STAAR testing days the building will be secure and no visitors will be allowed.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to write letters to our 4th and 5th grade students. I can't wait to meet with them Monday afternoon and share your letters.
Our 2nd PDH session will begin on April 4th. The dates are (4/4, 4/18, 5/2, and 5/16). We have a few more staff members willing to facilitate and the form has been updated. Please click the link to sign up. https://docs.google.com/document/d/10I_3tgUvUmWEroaFYP9m89dGhj6_r5VvwploxCBqjds/edit
We will not have Bobcat Visioning this week due to STAAR.
Lastly, remember that "unknown" district personnel will enter the building using doors other than the main entrance. They will see how much of the building they can access before being addressed by staff and escorted to the main office. We got this!
Thanks everyone and let's have a great week back!
