Abernathy Elementary

Staff Flash - 4/29/16

The "A" Team

IN HONOR OF TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK, PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR TREATS FOR THE WEEK ALL STAFF MEMBERS!


I learned this week that there are almost 1 million ELL students in the state of Texas. WOW! Students participating in a bilingual program decreased while students in an ESL program increased. This means, our ELLs are not just spanish speaking but the number of languages represented in Texas is on the rise. ESL CERTIFICATION folks: Thanks for the extra effort. When you have completed testing and have an updated certification, please provide me a copy and I will process the reimbursement stipend to the business office.


Don't forget to schedule your Summative Conference with me! Last day is May 20th. Lots of great discussion!
