End of the Year...

We've all got the countdown going.... (22 days, 21 days, 20 days, etc)

I know this is both an exciting AND exhausting time of year. As we wind down our final 4 (that's right, FOUR) weeks of school, please make sure that you take some time to do the following:

  • Enjoy the remaining time with your kids!
  • Enjoy the remaining time with your peers!
  • Take advantage of each day remaining as an opportunity to impact your learners (academically, socially, and emotionally).
  • Take care of yourself.
  • Continue reinforcing routines and expectations through the end of the year... you'll be glad you did!
  • Take time to celebrate your learners' growth.

Let's make this a great end of the year!

CISD Summer PD

Hopefully you've had some time to peruse the 48 pages (okay... maybe it was only 11) of the CISD Summer PD Catalog.

I wanted to draw your attention to a few sessions and encourage as many of you as possible to participate in some of the Readers & Writers Workshop sessions being offered. As you know, the district will be moving forward fully with Readers Workshop this coming year and Writers Workshop the following.

I'm excited to share that we have been able to purchase the Writing Units of Study for each teacher. If you want to get a head start, plan to join other Wilson teachers at some of the Writers Workshop sessions this summer.

Also, there are several sessions being offered by Wilson educators! #WilsonRangersLeadTheWay

You must register for all sessions by June 4th. They will close registration that evening.

Election Day

Local elections will be held tomorrow, May 5th! Whether you live in CISD or not, your city will be holding local elections (School Board, City Council, etc).

Be sure to exercise your voice! Several organizations (Dallas Morning News, League of Women Voters, etc) provide candidate guides to help you stay informed about candidates.
