North Dallas Friday Publication

Week of November 16

Notes from Dr. Valadez

Thank you for all of your hard work this week and every other week. This week we recognized Mr. Munoz and Ms. Saenz for their "acts of valor" for going above and beyond their call of duty. I know that I cannot be at every campus, every day, but please know I recognize all of the hard work and dedication you are putting forth.

We will coordinate a time to present items from Thursday to you and your CIC's on the week of the holiday break. We will discuss the CIC tracker, job responsibilities and feeder expectations.

Ray is hosting a Journeys Training (Part 2) on November 19. Session begins at 3:30 p.m. If you would like to send your teachers, feel free to do so. The district is also extending the opportunity to attend HMH sessions on January 5. Details included on the SMORE!

I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday for our NDFP luncheon! Carpool if possible!
