Monday Morning Bearcub Brief

Volume LXVII-- 21 May 2018

"Every CUB stepping up, reaching out, moving forward!"

Kleb Kudos

Happy last Monday of the school year! I really can't believe that this is our last Bearcub Brief of the 17-18 school year, and that summer is just around the corner. It seems like just yesterday we were welcoming our Bearcubs for the first day of school, and now we are sending off our 8th graders to Klein and Klein Cain, and getting ready for the next crop of Cubs in the fall. Time really flew this year, and while watching our students grow and move forward is always bittersweet, my excitement is already growing for how great the 18-19 school year is going to be!


My first shout out of the week goes to Tyson Raleigh and our staff members for all of the man-hours and hard work that was put into preparing, administering, and completing STAAR testing for our campus this past week. We appreciate you so much and thank you for helping to ensure that our students had a great week on campus.

For my second shout out this week I want to highlight all of the activities that were going on around campus during our final Choice Den this past Friday. From cardboard challenges and enjoying the fresh air to crocheting and Junkbox Wars, there was so much to see and do! Our bearcubs have truly enjoyed Choice Den this year, and I want to thank Mrs. Lammers and the staff for all of the work that they put in to make this happen for our students.
And finally, a big thank you to our Klein Police department on National Police Week. We appreciate all that you do to keep our staff, students, and community safe. You go above and beyond to care for and invest in our students and we cannot thank you enough.

Staff, remember over the next few weeks to refer to your closing procedures packet for details on all of the goings-on...it will be pretty hectic with all the end of year events and wrap-up activities. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Need an extra copy of the packet from our closing procedures meeting? Stop by Amanda's desk and she can help you out.


If you have not already, here is one last chance to take the admin feedback survey for me, Alex, Ellen and Tyson. Thank you for your help giving us feedback to help us grow; we want to make our systems and service to staff and students 18-19 even better!


Finally, parents, make sure that you check out the instructions for our school supply pre-order for the 18-19 school year below. Pre-orders will run from now until July 2nd, and this year there will be no supply sales at the door during the new student orientation and school supply pickup...so order yours soon!
