E-Track (Bold information is an update)

Our next e-track begins on Wednesday, January 16. I have sent everyone a link to complete a slide for your course offering. These were due by December 19. If you did not submit yours, please do so by the end of the day Monday. On Tuesday, I will send an email to let you know that they are ready to share--I have to copy slides from staff that are not grade level teachers, and add them to each presentation. The students will begin signing up for their selections on Wednesday. Please turn in the selection sheets by Thursday. If you will need materials for your course, please let me know by emailing me (and copying Sally). Please include the list of materials and the cost. Do not purchase anything before getting approval. We will decide if it is more efficient for you to purchase the items on your own, or if we need to purchase the items. Our students had so many great choices last time. Thank you for your time and effort to make this a special time for them.

Vertical Team GT Showcase

This year, all of our students in the GT program will have the opportunity to participate in a vertical team showcase. This will be held on February 4 at Cy-Woods High School. A flyer will be going home soon. We are excited to be able to include all of our GT students in this showcase with all of the feeder schools of Cy-Woods (Robison, Farney, Sampson, Woodard, Spillane, and Goodson).

Ed Camp Cy-Fair (Saturday, Jan. 26, 8am-12:30 pm @ Spillane MS)

Here is an opportunity to attend great PD right here in the district! I attended last year and learned so many great tips. If you've never attended an Ed Camp, it is a different format for PD. Sessions are determined right there on the spot. Participants share what they want to learn, and other participants offer to host. You choose what sessions you attend. It's also FREE! Here is the information to register:

Free PD Opportunity, 4 Off-Contract Hours, Course #23997
