Owl Notes

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 17

THINGS TO KNOW...

*Monday holiday - Enjoy your Monday off. Make sure and take time for yourself. Leave your work at school and enjoy the three day weekend! It's all about you resting and refreshing yourself so that you can be ready to make it until Spring Break.

*TELPAS writing sample #2 and #3 are this week. Sample #2 is on he pink paper and Sample #3 is on the green paper. Verifiers will collect the two samples next Friday. Thanks for all your hard work.

*Calibration set 2 email will be coming soon!

*Tuesday Site Based - Tuesday after school Site Based team will be meeting. We will look over the responses we got from the survey.

*SOURCE (Foundations) meets on Wednesday. If you have any concerns for them, please let your representative know. Also, if you have done surveys, make sure they are turned into your representative so that we can review them.

*PTO Board Meeting is Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m.

*GO TEXAN DAY - Is being celebrated at ORE this Friday. The Houston date is February 28 but that is Spring Fling picture day.

*Math coach visit - Remember that Gretchen will be here on Monday, February 24. She will be working with Rachel Miller to do our math lab site activity during the day. Rachel will send more details.

*Lounge - if you eat in the lounge (and we hope you do) OR if you use any of the dishes to provide treats, please make sure you wash, dry, put away and clean up after yourselves. There has been a stash of dishes just sitting in the sink for a week or so now. Cleaning up after ourselves ensures that at least do our part to help reduce the "roach attracting."

*Just a reminder that our work hours are 7:30 - 3:30 (or when the last student leaves). You are expected to be in the building by 7:30.

*TELPAS online training - All 2nd, 3rd and 4th bilingual teachers, Rachel Miller, Maria Falcon, and myself will need to make plans to attend training on February 18 in the library after school. I will be training on online testing for TELPAS. This should be no more than 30-40 minutes in length. Please come to the library as soon as you are done with dismissal.
