Brags to......

Thanks to Phoebe Choe for supporting my teamwork/sportsmanship lesson by doing an activity with her kiddos at recess last week.

Nina – Everytime at this time of year I am reminded how amazing you are! Thanks for all your hard work in organizing and helping STAAR be as successful as possible for our students and staff! We appreciate you!!! Ms. Bailey

Even though it poured down rain outside and K-2 teachers had to use the inside sidewalk, the teachers did a great job of keeping their students quiet during STAAR testing. A big thank you !!

I would like to thank Amanda Valentini for signing up to help with the district Sport Stacking Tournament. She came right after school to help set up and stayed until the end. What a trooper! I am blessed to have her on the Specials team.

LeeAnn Sheppard and Jodi Leonard do a great job keeping up with the numbers as they're called each day at carpool.

Samantha Fisk shows such concern and kindness talking to her group at carpool time. It gives them such a nice send-off each day.

Thank you to the 5th grade team for their extra effort and friendship as I have gone through some personal illness. They are the best team ever!!!

Shelly Sisco- Thank you for keeping me on track everyday! You are an awesome teacher and friend!

Lori Pendegrass- Thank you for co-team leading with me. You do an awesome job and have so much leadership potential. With all the crazy times around end of year planning and STAAR you have been amazing with all you take on. THANK YOU!

Zack Pruett and Jana Sandall- Thank you for being so caring regarding my absences. Your compassion and support is something you cannot replace! Thanks for being great leaders!

Way to go Melissa McCary and Nicole Reiley on your leadership with Student Council!!
