Important Reminders

A PLC Reflection was placed in your box this week. Please do not stress over this. I sincerely would like your feedback so I can better plan for next year. Please try to return it to me before Monday, May 18th. If there are questions that are not relevant to you or you cannot answer, that is fine. Just complete what you can.

I shared with you the scope and sequence template for 2015-2016. Mrs. Good and Mrs. Hatcher have requested that everyone use this format for next school year. Please make it your goal to update and revise your scope and sequence for next year before the end of school. I realize that the math teachers have new TEKS and will need more time this summer to rework their scope and sequences. Mrs. Good will help us with that.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Bulldog Books

If you are NOT returning next year, please turn your black Bulldog notebook back into me before June 5th. Everyone else may keep your notebooks and continue to use them for next year.
