Nuts and Bolts:
Well – this is it!  The test is almost here!  I know all of you are going to use your time this week to put the finishing touches on your students’ preparation for the STAAR testing next week!  Then, we have to keep working hard for students to know that school is not out, just because we are done with STAAR testing!  Everyone must still have well planned lessons and keep our kids engaged!  I know you all will!

So far this year, NMS has made over 700,000 copies on our copier upstairs.  Please be mindful of what you are copying!  Thank you!

I want to thank the DC’s again for their work with their teams on the book, Teach Like A Champion, and the techniques we are going to expect to be used next year in every classroom in NMS!  We will continue the book study through the fall – but everyone will be expected to start the school year using the techniques outlined in the Exepctations document that the DC’s created.  Remember – we are striving to grow a culture of achievement, accountability, and feedback!  This is our next step in making that happen!

Have a great week!  Congratulations again to the NMS band!!
