I wanted to let you know that I will be out three days this week, as I have been invited to attend a conference in California with a few other district members. It is in Cupertino and we are going to be working with Apple and iTunes University, etc. Hoping to come away with some great ideas for future possibilities with our learning at TCE! I will be out on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but will have access to email and texts. Brett is also going to be out this week on Tuesday and Wednesday due to two administrator trainings. (nothing like having both administrators off campus!) As you know, we try to avoid this if at all possible and our wonderful Linda Cook as well as our glorious Kelly Spears will be your go to people for any needs on these two days!
Since Brett and I will both be out this week on Wednesday, we are cancelling our Vertical meeting and moving it to next week!

Educator Goal Setting
Remember that your goals need to be entered into Appraise by Wednesday, September 24th. Brett and I will have a letter for you this week that shows who your evaluator will be this year as well as the windows for observations. If you would like to discuss your goals before entering it or if you have any questions at all, please let us know and we would be happy to visit with you!
CISD Education Foundation
Our wonderful CISD Education Foundation is once again selling t-shirts this year to help support our learners and educators! Please see the following flyer for info about purchasing a shirt. Marnie will be collecting the funds for the shirts. Also, we are doing a promotion again this year for the shirt! If you purchase a CISD Education Foundation Red and Black Backer shirt, you may have 6 jeans passes!! That's right folks 6 jeans day passes! These can be used during the months of September and October!
So, if you bring in money tomorrow, you could use that as one of your days!
Technology Showcase Night
Please be thinking of how you can help to participate this year with our evening for our parents and which of your kiddos might be good to help work with you. Remember that the purpose of this evening is to show how we are using technology tools and technology integration in our learning! This is also a great time for us to do this as our Write A Check donations are being gathered for possible funding with the CISD Matching Funds.
Since we are planning on having the movie in the gym, we are hoping to have even more parent participation. So, this means we may need more sessions than usual. I will have a sign up on the board by the elevator for this week, so be thinking about how your team might have two teachers present on one topic and the other half of your team present something different. This also includes any specials/ists teachers as well, or you can also sign up to help in the gym!
- K-5 teachers getting MAP assessments going with your kiddos!
- Kelly Spears, Kim Becker, Lisa Hansen, Alicia Montgomery, KaTrina Brown and Mary Kennington for helping with MAP assessments!
