Cockrell's Corner

Welcome Back, Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week off and feel rejuvenated! I’m glad all our staff and students returned to school safely today, especially with all the rainy weather! I had the opportunity to spend most of the week with family and visited with relatives I haven’t seen in some time while eating fabulous food and relaxing. Of course, the saga of my new driver, Case, continued with 2 wrecks in 1 week. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but needless to say, he won’t be driving for a while. Anyway, it’s back to business as usual here at school. MAP testing starts this week and I know you will all see amazing growth from your kids. You have been working tirelessly to meet their needs and I know you’ll see great results. We only have 3 weeks until the holiday break, and we can’t waste one minute of quality instruction. The students need all of us at our very best! Thank you all in advance for everything you do. As always, I feel blessed to be your colleague.

Welcome Back!!! I hope everyone had a restful week off. My Thanksgiving was absolutely AMAZING! I was able to spend some time with my son in Nashville. There's just nothing like family. As we finish this semester strong over the next 3 weeks, I would just like for us to reflect on all the instructional information we've been receiving. I'm not going to give you another article on Guided Reading this week. I know you need time to just get settled back into the groove of things. This is a good time to review expectations, class procedures and routines.


Happy Monday!
