Officer Blake

Please talk to your classes about appropriate responses to Officer Blake if they see him in the hall/classrooms. Some students have been trying to touch the weapons on his belt. Make sure they know to say hi, high five, or fist bump, but not to grab at his belt. Thanks!!

Christian Care Center...let's #levelup!

Did you know the Christian Care Center has been operating for over 40 years? Their goal is to help Wylie and its surrounding areas with food, clothes, and household support. Our fundraiser each year is a direct support to our Wylie families. Last year we raised $465, and we have been challenged to #LEVELUP...

Goals check in!

The week of October 29- Nov 2 will be our goal check in!


I'll be placing in your box your goal from the beginning of the year and your "person", please complete the checklist included on the back and return to my mailbox. There is power in the importance of tracking our progress to achieve goals. Many people fail to accomplish their goals on time not because they lack skills and knowledge, but because they lose sight of what they want to achieve.


Small wins are massive motivators. But we rarely recognize them, because of life. Fall. Rain. No recess for a week. #allthethings.

That's what I want the accountability cadence to be for you...a WIN!

Thank you for turning in your conference list!

Morgan's Musings

RTI

Friendly reminder to record your interventions in Aware as well as progress monitoring. If a student is in LLI, you should be uploading the PM documents as you get them from Lisa. Make sure you choose a progress monitoring method and stick with the same one for at least 6 weeks so we get consistent data to monitor growth/deficits.


Fire Drills

If we have a fire drill while your grade level is at PACK, please don't forget that you need to join your class! You can help the PACK teachers ensure that all students are accounted for. I will also still call to clear the teachers in that grade level. You matter, too!


Lego's in the Library

If you have a class in the library, please monitor to make sure the Lego Book Reports are being left alone. We have had some pieces that have gone missing! :( Thank you!


After School Duty and WIN Time

If you have WIN time, please make arrangements in advance with your team so that someone can cover your duty after school. Thank you!

Counselor's Corner

Keep those cans coming! I'm so excited to see our participation this year (we're almost out of boxes!)! Seriously, each can will go to a family who will directly benefit from your support. Thanks for encouraging our wolves to give!
