Springing on Forward. . .

I can't believe we are already moving on into spring!  I hope you got the chance to have some smiles with friends and family during spring break and are ready to push on forward with a great rest of the school year! It is going to be a little busy this week with having to reschedule Open House, but at least we got to spring forward and have the time change happen during the break! :)

Important Reminders and Updates
 Open House 
 Open House will be coming up Tuesday (make up date), so make sure we continue working on our hallway displays of learning and what you may want to showcase in your classrooms for your parents! I know several people last year had parents participating in station activities or using technology to pull up info with QR codes or digital portfolios.  Please make sure you have all your technology ready to go if using and that you please make sure you have all your devices collected at the end of the event.
STAAR Testing 
Our first round of STAAR testing is quickly approaching.  We will be sending a letter home to parents about these dates as well as that they may not be in the building on these days to volunteer, have lunch, etc.  We will be providing lunch to the staff of both of these days and we will let you know who we will need for testing groups during the training this week.  We are training the entire staff as we will have many small groups that need testing administrators and also for everyone to be on the same page for testing security in the building.  

Book Studies
If you could please make sure that you have both of our books, Choice Words and Opening Minds, read by our faculty meeting in April.  This way we will be able to continue follow up discussions, etc.

Final Quotes
Sometimes we just need to take a step back and appreciate the little things in life and the journey along the way. . .
