Phillips Friday Focus

We made it!

I hope you have felt special, appreciated, and valued this week. Enjoy your Chick Fil-a for lunch today. Google Training went great this week. Enid bragged on your positive attitudes about the change at such a busy time of the year. Thank you.

We made it to STAAR! As I said Wednesday, you have worked your tails off this year. Today is about reminding students of what they are capable of and accomplishing. You have done all you can, today is about calming nerves. Rest this weekend knowing your students are ready and prepared to nail the tests next week. Keep telling them you believe in them right up until they open that test.

I finished up with Summatives this week and I appreciated your honesty and reflection of your own school year. We can only grow and get better from here. Paraprofessionals, I will try to catch you all at the end of week for your evaluations.
