Morgan's Musings

I just want to thank Every. Single. One of you for helping us with such a smooth Writing STAAR day! Halls were quiet, kids were working hard on the test, everyone chipped in to adjust their schedules....it was just awesome. THANK YOU!!!


More STAAR...Sigh :)

We will review math and reading STAAR stuff in PLC on 4/24. Please come ready to talk groups. Please bring your spreadsheet of accommodations for your kids so you can double check my master list. Also come ready to discuss if you have anything you recommend we tweak for the next round!


Textbooks:

Team leads, please give me your feedback for consumables at PLC on 4/17! :)


4th (and maybe 3rd) Grade Teachers:

We will have some visiting 4th grade teachers from Royse City on 4/18 that want to come see you in action! I think they are primarily coming to see ELAR, but I make no promises they won't stop in and see math, too! Thank you for letting them come over and learn from you guys! I told them they can pop in some 3rd grade rooms too, if time allows!

Notes from Patricia & Patty

Enjoy your long weekend!

Counselor's Corner


4/17 Day of Gratitude

Here are your plans for DOG. They'll be in your box along with materials by April 5. This is a short, 30-minute collection of one video and two exercises. If you've any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to let me know!

Notes from the Nurse

I STILL work here. :)

Big picture

We're FLOORED!

We are getting new carpet this summer! To make it easier on the carpet people, we will need to have all of our things up off of the floor (except furniture) when we leave on May 24th. If you have books on a bookshelf, please box them up and put them on your back counter. Also, there shouldn’t be anything hanging on the walls lower than 3 feet from the carpet. If you have personal furniture (bookshelves, other shelving systems) they will either be moved to your counter, or to the cafeteria. Please make sure that you label them with your room number so that they get back to you! If you have any extra special personal items, it might be a good idea to take them home for the summer so that they stay safe. We are lucky that they are doing this during the summer – some places have to pack up and move during the school year! Can you even imagine?!?
