Every scholar, every day! October / November 2022

A Message from Leslie Thomas

Hello Diamondbacks!


Welcome back from fall intersession. I hope everyone had a restful and reenergized break. We would like to invite all parents to attend our fall Student / Led Conferences on October 25th from 4:30-6:30. Come see all the great learning happening in your child's classroom. Your child's teacher will be reaching out to you with more information. Our district fall benchmark is fast approaching in November. We will inform you of the upcoming dates.


Come one, come all to our annual fall festival. It will be held on October 28th from 4:30-7:30 in the large parking lot. Pre-sale tickets will be sold in the front office beginning Oct. 24th. We look forward to seeing everyone there!


For the safety of all scholars and pets, please do not bring animals on the campus. We kindly ask that leave animals at home when dropping off or picking up your child. Our scholars safety is our priority.



Please make sure to check our campus web page frequently at sisd.net/cactustrailses as important information is posted there. You can also follow me on Twitter to keep updated and informed about school openings and schedules. Thank you for trusting us with your child and I wish you all a CACTASTIC school year!




Respectfully,

Leslie Thomas

Proud D-Back Principal

About The Coffee Bean Book

The Coffee Bean is an inspiring tale that follows Abe, a young man filled with stress and fear as he faces challenges and pressure at school and home. One day after class, his teacher shares with him the life-changing lesson of the coffee bean, and this powerful message changes the way he thinks, acts, and sees the world. Abe discovers that instead of letting his environment change him for the worse, he can transform any environment he is in for the better. Equipped with this transformational truth, Abe embarks on an inspirational journey to live his life like the coffee bean. Wherever his life takes him, from school, to the military, to the business world, Abe demonstrates how this simple lesson can unleash the unstoppable power within you.
