High School Highlights

Reinventing the urban experience together

November 16 - 22, 2015

It is almost here .... almost. Before you know it it will be Thanksgiving Break. Even though a break is near and for many it is viewed as a time to relax and 'de-stress', please remember, and be on the look out for,those that it is not. They may need help through AISD's Employess Assistance Program. Have that information readily available.

Wednesday is our principal's meeting, and I cannot wait to see you all to share our learning. Please be sure to bring: your electronic device of choice, your knowledge of chapters 5 & 6 of Do I Really Have to Teach Reading (along with samples to share of literacy strategies being implemented on your campus) and ideas to share on how you are preparing for December EOC's, any mid-year adjustments you will be making, thoughts on a 9 week grading system, how you maximize your budget and how you build district leaders on your campus.
