The Shady Brook Vision and Mission Statement

Knowledge Informs and Determines Success for Students

The mission of Shady Brook Elementary is to educate all students for success today and tomorrow.

Energy Audits

Please, please, please make sure that you have a system in place to remind yourself to shut everything down at the end of the day. Printers and desk lamps are two of the items that are being left on the most. Thank you for your help with this so that we can reduce our number of energy tickets.

Testing at a Glance:

Action Required for all teachers: I wanted to let you know that our required ELPS fall awareness training is online this year. This course is required for all teachers. You will find the course under HEB curriculum, inside of the training tab. The enrollment key for this course is heb123. Individually, you will need to watch the training video, complete the quiz (with a grade of 100), print the associated certificate and turn in to Clarence. When turning in your certificate, you will need to sign the Eduphoria sign-in sheet that will be located outside of Clarence’s door. This is to be completed by December 11th.

Kudos to. . .

  • You all for the great RtI videos that were created! They were even so much more creative than I anticipated! The best part about being a Shetland is the way that even when new things come our way, we continually work to make sure that we are doing the best we can with the initiative! Thank you for the time and energy that you all have spent on this new RtI process.
  • Lydia, Andrea S. and Coach for helping with one of our friends in Ms. Frazior's classroom during our Reverse Evacuation drill. Your assistance was greatly appreciated!

News you need to know!

Thanksgiving Break - Only two more Mondays until the break!

No Tutoring the week of Thanksgiving

CHAMPS - As the students are getting more and more excited about the upcoming breaks it will be important for you to reteach your expectations. This is a great time to review the new CHAMPS yellow posters across the campus to address behavior in our common areas.

Parking - Remember that there is not parking in the back of the building unless we are having a special event. Everyone should be parking the front area. Thank you for your help with this!
