The Coyote Trail

~All you need to know to find your way this week~

Welcome Back!

I hope you had a great long weekend and were able to rest and spend much needed time with your family. It is hard to believe that we are already beginning our third week of school. Everything seems to be going smoothly. If there is anything we need to know about to tweak, please let us know. You are the best eyes and ears throughout the school.


Diana and I will begin conducting walk throughs this week. We have been seeing such great teaching already and can't wait to see even more.


Please don't forget to work on your individual SMART goals. If you need any help, please let us know.


Attached to the email, you will find several flyers with information. Please share these with parents and families through your Face Book pages, email, and or newsletters that you use to communicate. We want to try and reach as many families as we can with information so that everyone can participate in the activities they want. Thank you for all that you do to make this school the best.


Make this week a great one,

Jennifer

Do you need help?

On Thursday, our PTA parents will be on campus to help teachers with various needs. There will be a file crate and white board in the teacher workroom for you to make requests.

Need copies? Fill out a copy form and place it in your labeled file. Need materials cut or sorted? Place them in the file as well.

Need some help in your classroom? Write your name on the white board and they will come to you.

Filing, sorting, creating, etc.

We have a great group of parents coming that want to help. Let's use them each week.

Great News!!

Teachers,

TTM is now up and running for our students! New users should have received an email from the company already. That email is required for you to access your account. Since teachers do not have admin rights, there will be many add/move changes throughout the year. I am asking that you use the link below to complete any needs request (might want to save this email for later). You will need to use your Wylie google account to access the form.

Here are just a few things to help you get started:

*There are Getting Started documents to help those who are new to the program. Click on the help tab and chose the resources you need.

*Tech has loaded our students and you will not be able to add, or change from one class to another.

*I have already connected classes if departmentalized J
