Teacher Appreciation Week

Many of us will be showering our teaching staff with appreciation next week. The PTA has several treats planned for the week. Debbie and I will have some small tokens of appreciation to supplement the week. One of the most favorite treats of all time is JEANS. Please feel free to wear jeans next week as a token of appreciation for all that you ALL do for the children.


Here's an overview of the plans from PTA:

May 5th: Lattes on Location

May 7th: Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

May 8th: Dessert Bar


Please be sure that you thank PTA for their hard work in making sure that you all have an awesome week. There are more surprises in store, so enjoy the attention next week.

Visioning Institute Learning

I've now been away for several days of learning with the Plano Visioning institute. I can honestly say that I am so excited with the direction that this group is headed and the dreams that we have for our organization, our schools, and our kids. I feel honored that my application was selected for this opportunity. Here's a link to my reflection from my latest learning session: https://twitter.com/skimbriel/status/593173506361176065 . Excuse the video, if you are able to click on it!

Thank you!

Our McCall TLAP PLC (that's a loaded bunch of acryonyms!) has me so proud of their work this school year. I hope that all of you and the children love your day of inspirational learning on May 1st as we venture into our very first TLAP day. I know Dave Burgess would be so proud of you as well. I do encourage you to tweet and take a lot of pictures that can be shared on our McCall FB page to document this great day of learning you all have planned for the children.


Thank you to all the TLAP PLC members for a successful study of Teach LIke a Pirate and really digging into your goals for the school year.
