First Week

We had a wonderful first week of school!  We went over rules and procedures and the students did very well!  The kids seem very excited about us starting the Reading and Writing Workshop!  For Social Studies we will continue learning about Texas Symbols and begin learning about Texas Geography!

I am extremely excited about working with the kids this year and inspiring them to discover, question, think and be excited about learning.  Our Core Values are Leadership, Honesty, Integrity, Curiosity, and Respect! We will be talking about these Core Values and we will be looking for students who are exhibiting these throughout the day!

Today I gave the students their first spelling homework names Tic-Tac- Toe.They will be having a  pre-test at the beginning of every week.  Students will only practice those words which were incorrect in their pre-test for homework.  If they receive a 100% on the pre-test they will not have to do their spelling homework.

  It is the student's responsibility to make sure that they are reading and writing on a daily basis and that they are working on spelling words and patterns for the week.

We will be contacting you all soon so that we can have a beginning of the year conference to go over any questions or concerns which you may have.  We will be sending home notices with your children as to when we can meet and go over goals.
