Straight 8 is Saturday!


Due to next week's short week, I will not send a newsletter next week. I hope you all enjoy your upcoming 5 day weekend. Thank you to those of you who are working ROCK PLUS on May 26

  • Straight 8 training will be held in Allen ISD on Saturday, May 21st. Time: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Where: Allen ISD Central Office 612 East Bethany Dr. Allen 75002. Carpools and lunch will be provided. Only water will be provided to drink, so if you want to bring your own drink with you, you are welcome to do so. There is a vending machine available on-site but requires $1.25, so plan accordingly. Those of you who are carpooling with me, please park in the front parking lot of our Central Office and come get it my Suburban. I'll meet you there at 7:00 a.m. Feel free to bring you a breakfast snack to eat on the way!
  • Safe Schools training: Some of you still have not completed this task. I sent you a separate email out it.
  • Early Release is the last day of school, June 3rd. Please let you Site Coordinator know if you will NOT be able to be at work by 11:30 a.m. Site Coordinators- please check with your parents to know who will be in attendance on June 3rd. If we do need to order you an Aesop sub, please let us know ASAP.
  • Save the Dates: Please check the Upcoming Events section as I have added the August training dates. Plan your summer vacations accordingly!

  • Quote of the week: As you are probably growing weary at this time of the year, please remember that being prepared for the day will make you day go more smoothly!
