 Open House

Just a reminder that Open House will be coming up the week of March 7th corner!  Be thinking about what work you will want to showcase around the school and in your classrooms!  If you haven't freshened up your team black bulletin boards in a while, please try to change those out as well!  

March Potluck
We will be having our next TCE potluck on Monday, March 7th!  This is a great time to try a new recipe or bring up one of your favorites!  

STAAR Accommodations and Groups

As we are getting closer to our 1st round of STAAR testing, please make sure that you are carefully looking at all current state testing accommodations to ensure everything is in order for testing.  This includes reviewing carefully IEP's and 504 plans as well as looking at current RtI data for needs.   

We are working on creating small groups and individual testing as needed.  If you have a concern, please get with us (Kelly, Brett, me) ASAP! These groups we are working on will be shared with you soon as we have them ready.  Also, K-2 classroom teachers we will let you know if we need you for testing on any of these days.
