Know Our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!
Hey Team! I think our 8th graders did great on the second round of Reading STAAR! I want to thank all of the 8th grade ELA teachers for working so hard with their kids in small groups! I also want to thank Angela and Katie for their hard work intervening with the 8th graders also! Thanks to Donovan for working with the SPED kids. A huge thank you to all of the teachers who helped support this effort! Those staff members are:
Tracy Ache, Ahmad, Gina Blanco, Kendrick, Darren, and Isaac. I apologize ahead of time if I missed someone! Thanks Lesli for getting everything up and running!
There are still many subs being called for each day! Please make every effort to be here! We are scrambling each morning – having to pull your colleagues to cover classes! That means that students who need co-teachers are not getting them! Thank you for your consideration, I am sure you colleagues thank you also!
As time moves on, and this year is almost out – I am going to say it is critical that we all maintain learning in your classrooms. Your students should be working on relevant classwork every day, bell to bell. Please do not show movies and give students the perception that school is almost out! If students need to leave your room – they need to have a pass. If you want students to come to your room during lunch – they need a pass or they won’t be able to go! Thank you for keeping students focused and working from now to the last day! For all the new teachers out there: We don’t have parties in middle school! Everyone gives a final in each class – the final needs to be given during finals week, on the appropriate day.
Here is the schedule for this week and the following week! This week is super easy, and there is a lot the following week!
