Week of March 30

Thank you for another INCREDIBLE WEEK at Lee.  It was busy, but SO MUCH LEARNING is happening here.  I just LOVE walking our visitors through the building and being able to show them the evidence of learning ALL OVER THE PLACE.  My heart was full when two visitors from the Gates Foundation said this, "this school is beautiful, but it is what your teachers are doing with the school and the children that is most impressive."  I couldn't agree more!!!

Here are two quotes that resonated with me this week:

“Continuous effort–not strength or intelligence–is the key to unlocking our potential.” – Winston Churchill

“The team player knows that it doesn’t matter who gets the credit as long as the job gets done. If the job gets done, the credit will come.”
– The Edge


Please have learners seated in the gym at 8:00.  Choir learners will be to the side so that we don't waste time getting them together.  Don't forget to let your learners know if they have perfect attendance.  We will recognize them.  We have a fun morning planned for you!

Remember, ANY of you are welcome to join us when we have our Monthly Leadership Meetings.  It is a great way to stay informed and also weigh in on campus decisions.  Thank you to this year's members for their contributions so far!


Dr. Waldrip will visit us after school on Thursday.  Please plan on attending.  He will be reviewing important legislative information.  If you have any questions or want to learn more, check out the CISD website.

Layne, Megan, and Elisa are walking tomorrow.  If you want to join me to cheer them on, email or text me.  I am a great cheerleader and am happy to bring the bullhorns!! :)

STAAR tests are on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  Please remind parents that cell phones need to stay home and that they may not come to lunch on these days.  Here are maps to remind you where testing will take place in the building.  Please ensure that your learners help us create a positive testing environment.  THANK YOU to all of you that have preparing our learners and school for these days!  A special shout out to Angela who has worked nights and weekends to get everything organized and communicated.  Thank you, Glitters, for stepping up to test small groups!  4th and 5th grade designers...BREATHE...they are prepared- we all know you have done your best- YOUR LEARNERS WILL MAKE YOU PROUD!

If you are interested in showcasing your class or sharing sustainable parts of Lee with the community, there is an event on Saturday, April 11.  Please click here to see how you can help or participate.
