Why Math Education in the U.S. Doesn't Add Up....

Are our classroom practices helping or hindering our students?

Cafeteria Concerns

To keep you in the loop - I am working with Sodexo on staffing in our cafeteria as well as removal of the slushie machine. I assure you that Tawana is leading her staff the best she can to ensure that students eat on time. I am going to be reviewing the lunch schedule this weekend and will make changes if possible to provide extra time between grade levels.

Thank you for your patience with everyone involved. None of our jobs are easy and no one works alone. Everything we do affects everyone else so we will continue to function as a team and support one another.

Open Enrollment Time!

Open Enrollment is Oct. 17 - Oct. 31. ALL employees much elect or deny benefits.

Dress Code reminder

I've attached the Keller ISD Employee Dress Code guidelines which were recently revised. As a reminder, you may wear jeans on Wednesdays if you are wearing a R.O.C.K. shirt and you may wear jeans on Friday if you are wearing an RES or Keller ISD shirt. Flip flops are never appropriate. Let me know if you have any questions.

R.O.C.K. Merchandise Available MONDAY!

KISD is now offering 14 styles of R.O.C.K. shirts for staff and students! The ordering window is Monday, October 17 - Friday, Nov. 4 and shirts will be delivered in December. Another order will not be placed until Spring Break.

In addition to R.O.C.K. shirt Wednesdays, we will be adding an anti-bullying announcement each Wednesday and encourage you to use it as a springboard for your Morning Meeting that day.

We are also encouraging our students to buy R.O.C.K. shirts to wear on Wednesdays with us! Please include order information in your newsletters.

There is a $3 charge for online orders so I encourage you to team up and place orders together to split that cost.
