Flatonia Elementary Memo
Inspired this week by an Irish Blessing!
- Lesson Plans are due weekly by Monday morning.
- Please be sure to hang your Pink Office Pocket out everyday!
- Watch the clock, and make sure you on on duty at your scheduled time--arriving late for Playground pick up delays our Paraprofessionals schedules and lunches.
- Attendance is important, especially with STAAR Testing coming up. We need you here to teach our students, and there are often limited substitutes available during testing. Illness and emergencies happen, but please try your best to be present.
