Reminders, Ideas, and Thoughts to Ponder...

Best of luck to our 4th and 5th graders!

Let's all take some time to pat our 4th and 5th grade teachers on the back for their tremendous efforts in preparing our students for the upcoming Reading and Writing assessments!  I mean it when I say we have some incredible teachers in this building and I have no doubt our students are well prepared to do their very best!  Thanks for your hard work and dedication in working so hard to help them to shine!

Check out these teachers with a little STAAR fever!  :) Funky! Awesome!

1. Teacher Self Reports for both teachers on LEADS and PDAS are due April 17th. 

2. 3rd-5th grade teachers- please ensure you have marked your calendars for our STAAR pep rally, before our next round of STAAR tests, on April 17th at 2:00 p.m.  We would love for each team to prepare a little something to share to inspire our students.  CCHS cheerleaders will join us again as well. 

2. This time of year , its always good to remember that the way to move students forward is to tap into their strengths to help build upon their struggles.  Click here for a great article on uncovering students' passions and strengths!
