NO SCHOOL MONDAY! STAFF DEVELOPMENT FOR TEACHERS

LIFE PRINCIPLE OF THE WEEK--Initiative

Definition-Initiative is a noun, the ability to assess and initiate things independently.


"Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves ."

Cesar Chavez

TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Diane Collins-PPCD Teacher

Hi! My name is Diane Collins. I teach Pre-Kindergarten here at Chavez. I’ve been in this school for 4 years and in the Little Elm School District for 18 years. I began teaching in Las Vegas, Nevada teaching kindergarten and first grade for 10 years before Texas. Teaching has been all I’ve ever wanted to do since I was in 2nd grade. I enjoy reading, walking on a wooded path in Alaska, cruising through the Mediterranean, being on a beach anywhere listening to the waves, or just relaxing with my family , my friends and my 2 dogs.

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART UPDATE ----by Coach Kirk Johnson

Just wanted to give an update on our Jump Rope for Heart campaign. We kicked off our Jump Rope for Heart campaign on Feb. 1st with a goal of raising $1500 for the American Heart Association. I would like to say Chavez has surpassed that goal with online donations only! Currently we have raised $3892 through online donations for the American Heart Association. Please remember that all envelopes and money collected were due to Coach Johnson on Wednesday Feb. 10th. If you have any questions please contact Coach Johnson.

Thank you so much for supporting such a worthy cause.

GROOVY BOOKFAIR!

We would like to thank our awesome Chavez community for once again supporting literacy by supporting the Chavez Bookfair. Mrs. Woolsey was in rare form with her groovy outfits as usual. Our students and their families had a great time shopping for books. Thank you parents for all of your support.
