Tyler is doing a short song video but I'm still trying to come up with some kind of little skit...I think it's too late to organize more than that.

Here are some skit ideas so far---

Family Feud (3rd vs. 4th teachers)

Teacher Tube (but would have to involve some filming not sure I can get this done)

From Mrs. Hoover

Please read all your emails from Mrs. Hoover very carefully. They are regarding STAAR Testing.

Also this is the menu for testing days.

Menu for testing:

On 5/13 we will serve Chicken burger, cucumbers, carrots and an apple. On 5/14 we will serve Chicken drumstick, ginger Texas, celery, carrots and an apple.

One last copy of accommodations will be coming out today. It needs to be checked thoroughly by Monday, May 6, 2019.

From Mrs. Cristan

Please continue to actively monitor students while playing at recess.

** Issues at recess are increasing, please remind class of expectations.

Please take your radios to the playground.

From Mrs. Villarreal

Teachers, please keep a look out for my emails.I will need to complete end of year 3rd grade ESL testing, a few 4th grade ESL, and make up GT testing (for those that were absent).
