What's Up @ Skaggs

May 16-20 The End is in Sight!

Thank Yous and Celebrations

  • Thank you to Nia for doing an amazing and organized job on STAAR. This was her first time and you would never have known!
  • Thank you to everyone for your efforts on STAAR! We had monitors, test administrators, people missing specials, adapted recess/lunch, silent walkers, and on and on and on. The efforts by all did not go unrecognized! You are so appreciated!
  • Thank you to PTA for the fabulous popcorn treat for Teacher Appreciation Week!
  • Thank you to Cheri for all she does! I hope you had a great Nurse's Day on Wednesday!
  • Thank you for covering for the TLs in their absence tomorrow!
  • Thank you to those that are going the extra mile to attend the PTA carnival on Saturday! It really means a lot to the PTA but mostly to the kids!!!!
  • Welcome to Fariba! Our last hire in the ALC/ELC! We are down to needing one fifth grade teacher!
  • There are three CRAZY weeks of school left! Jeans and shorts (appropriate length) are welcome! Also I am not keeping track of leave time so you don't have to fill out any more forms for leave early. We all have retirements, graduations, end of year fun with our own kids. Just work it out with your team, don't take advantage of it, get all your work done and be responsible!

Star Parking

Nurse Cheri-She volunteered to do the slideshow for the fifth grade celebration. She had only been here a couple of weeks! She already has front row parking but I didn't want her to go unrecognized. I guess that spot is free game next week!
