Important date!

District visitors will be coming on October 18th at 3:20 to present our Lone Star Award. All staff are required to attend the meeting. We will gather in the Art Room.

PTA Fall Carnival

PTA will post a sign up sheet in the workroom for staff to choose what shift they will work at the carnival.

Please discuss as a team what you will donate to the Silent Auction. They love to get individualized teacher freebees like "Lunch with Mrs. ..." but please consider bundling your donation as a team into a "basket" to entice a greater bid!

Staff Climate Survey

Please complete the staff survey and turn it in to Beth's box by October 18th. You do not have to put your name on it. If you do not want to print and you don't mind if I know who you are you are welcome to email it and I will print it for you and put it in the stack.

              You Matter forms are in the teacher workroom. Recognize your peers on the wall in the lounge!

              I know that you all observe staff members going above and beyond on a daily basis to support students, fellow staff members, and the overall success of Hurst Hills. Please send in Kudos as you see them so that staff can be recognized for the things they do from day to day that make a difference. I would also love to share personal celebrations! Email your recognition to Beth by Friday to be added to the weekly notes!!

              The building will be open Saturday and Sunday from 8-5. Remember to look for the smiley face on the door so you know you can enter. Please sign in and out in the office.
