Week of December 1

Before we leave for our FABULOUS week off, I want to express MANY THANKS for the blessings that each of you bring to our school.

THANK YOU for the tireless effort that you give our school and children EACH and EVERY day. I know the personal time you sacrifice to go above and beyond to make our school the most fun and exciting place for children to learn and grow.  I am honored to work with you!

THANK YOU for all you did to make Friday a day of showcase for our school.  I have no doubt these leading Superintendents will be mesmerized with what you are doing with our learners. 

THANK YOU for making my 42nd Birthday and "AMAZING" one that will forever be in my memory.  I was touched, humbled, and blown away with your creativity, generosity, and thoughtfulness.  I become overwhelmed with emotion thinking about the WEEK OF CHANTEL and how special and celebrated I feel. I love each and every one of you!

PLEASE ENJOY YOUR WEEK OFF!  I pray that you have wonderful memories with friends, family, and loved ones.  I also pray that you get some well-deserved rest and "YOU time."  I plan to avoid this building.  I hope you each will do the same- you have earned it!

  • that you can plant in our raised beds now?  Check out this site if you want to know what you can start as seedlings for when the spring gets here.  
  • that we received the sweetest praise from a parent?  They said,  "I wanted to compliment your staff at car line. I have been observing this since the school started: they are all smiling and waving while making eye contacts with the parents all the time. They create a  happy feeling which is very contagious and gives me extra energy while I drive to work."  WHAT A GREAT EMAIL TO GET!!!
  • that Shelley and Kylie moved a total of 863 pounds of cans?  That was 879 cans of food. These cans will provide access to 719 meals for hungry children, families and seniors in need in North Texas!
  • we are going to take a staff Christmas picture on Monday, December 1, right after school?  Please bring a Santa hat, Christmas props, or wear a tacky sweater so we can send out holiday wishes from Lee to the other Coppell schools.
  • that you need to get fun pajama bottoms SOON?  We will have a Polar Express day where you can wear them to school.  Maybe we will even have a pajama parade?
  • that most shelves should be finished being installed by the end of the day?  YAY!

I can't wait to see how many turkeys come in from RJL!  THANK YOU to those of you that succumbed to the pressure of a phone call plea for turkeys.  THANK YOU to Alicia for being our point person for the Turkey Drive and to Stacey for sharing her turkey hats with us in the car loop!  :)

I cannot wait to tour our visiting Superintendents around our school tomorrow.  Thank you to those who already shared that you will be in the flex space, the outdoor learning pavilion, and more.  If anyone is interested, the data dashboard is up and working with close to accurate information, now.  The pen is in the front office.

Please review the lunch expectations from our Leadership Meeting with your houses.  Some already started on Thursday- WOW!  

If you are planning on participating in this event, please let CK know.  

4th graders will be hosting a CBL toy drive from December 8 - December 19 at our school.  This is to go along with their Global Read Aloud book study of One for the Murphys.  Please post in your newsletters that they will be asking for new, unwrapped toys during these days.

Thank you for getting your estimated lunch counts in to Jean.  Also, remember that this day you will eat in your spaces.  Todd will send a schedule your way so that you know what to expect that day.  I'm sad to miss the event.  Please have your learners make Thank You cards for PTO for funding the busses for our learners and staff. 

Don't forget to book Roxann on this website!

We hope you have enjoyed our new LIVE morning broadcast.  We will continue to do our best to start promptly at 7:55.  We hope that this helps with getting your learning day started.  Thank you Courtney and Alli for your efforts with this!
