The Wolf Howl

Week of 11/15/15

Veteran's Day Ceremony

A huge thank you to all who participated and planned the Veteran's Day program. The PALS were great hosts/hostesses in the library; the band's patriotic songs were amazing; the choir was beautiful; and the dancers were really enjoyable. After school I had several students tell me how much they enjoyed the program. One girl told me it was "the most amazing program I have ever seen!" High praise from a 7th grader! Again, thank you to Pat Brolan for all her hard work and the SS teachers for making sure our Wolves had good background knowledge.

Visitors Are Coming!

This Wednesday, November 18, we will have groups of administrators in and out of classes most of the morning. I will arrange the schedule so that hopefully all core content classes as well as many of the fine arts and electives are visited. Please plan your morning to be at your best - engaging lessons with deep critical thinking and WICOR. Guests will be here from 8:40 - 9:40; 10:00 - 11:00; and 11:20 - 12:20.

I will get a schedule out with the times and rooms by Tuesday, but plan on showing off the Wolves on Wednesday! We are Wolf Strong!

Pep Rally Rescheduled

Just to make sure that you are all in the know: the Pep Rally scheduled for the 20th has been rescheduled until May 6. "College - Go Get It" Week was moved to that week, and since this is the "College - Go Get It" Pep Rally sponsored by AVID, it made sense to move it. On a good note, it will be nice to recognize track and soccer athletes, and it is the week prior to STAAR testing.
