A PROUD Picture

Things happening October 27-31, 2014

Your principal pauses...

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. Brian Tracy


How's your balance?

Guess what?

As of now, Kristy Hill is our only KISD Education Foundation Grant entry! :-(


PLEASE make sure you are checking on playground equipment. It should be returned to the bin. Lots is being left on the playground and lost. The PTA asked that I remind you!


November 3: Father of Texas Day, in memory of Stephen F. Austin, the great pioneer patriot and the real and true Father of Texas. Father of Texas Day shall be regularly observed by appropriate and patriotic programs in the public schools to properly commemorate the birthday of Stephen F. Austin and to inspire a greater love for this beloved state. How can your students celebrate this day?


Because we have a campus expectation of writing everyday, Kristy is offering 5 one-hour mini workshops on how to improve writing in your classroom. She is an officially trained ABYDOS trainer now, so she knows what she's talking about. What a great resource for our school. We will try to video these trainings. See details below...


I haven't received everyone's classroom schedule and tutoring schedule with students' names. Please get those in ASAP! Thanks!
