Week of April 13

What a super week!  By the end of Friday, I will have visited with fifteen applicants for our open positions.  I have five more interviews scheduled for next week.  So far THREE applicants stand out and I am recommending Sanela Pjetrovic for an in district transfer.  Once her transfer is official, I will communicate to you so you can welcome her to our famiLEE.  I will continue to keep you posted as we interview.  I recognize that the changes of next year cause imaginations to run wild, but I encourage you to ENJOY THIS TIME TOGETHER.  We will be taken care of!!

  • that each house has a set of 24 Rekenreks that were delivered to your storage rooms last Friday?
  • that some of our very own Lee Spur Designers will be presenting at this summer's Balanced Literacy training?  Sign up by June 1st through Eduphoria if you are interested. 
  • about the Student Film Festival at the White House?  This year's topic: The Impact of Giving Back.  Maybe we can have some submissions next year? 

If you are invested in being dunked at the carnival, please sign up in the teacher's lounge.  Otherwise, Todd will be in there ALL NIGHT LONG!  THANK YOU for the personal time you will share with our learners on Friday night.  Cross your fingers for beautiful weather!


Please send your LEEdership Council members to the PreK room on Monday at 8:30.  Please also remind them to wear their council t-shirt when you send home your parent communication.


Tuesday's author presentation will begin promptly at 8:00 in the cafe.  Please move to the cafe right after morning broadcast.  The presentation will last about an hour.  After the presentation, we will ask questions and deliver the autographed books learners purchased.  If learners didn't get a chance to purchase a book ahead of time, they can buy one at this time.  They must have cash in order to purchase.  

Please be here on time for our Staff picture on Thursday morning at 7:10.  We will meet in the cafeteria.  We want EVERYONE to be included, so please allow for morning traffic and be on time!!

Please view the PPT and watch MODULE 1 on Active Monitoring.  Once you have viewed the PPT, please initial on the supplemental PPT training sheet in Angela's office and turn in Module 1 Active Monitoring certificates to her.


We are SO EXCITED that our learners in Red House will work our booth on Saturday.  THANK  YOU for designing a CBL unit that will have them share their knowledge with the world in an authentic way.  Way to go Red House!  You are welcome to come out to Coppell Town Hall from 9:00-1:00 Saturday.

Have you taken the time lately to make happy phone calls to your learners?  Remember doing these the first weeks of school?  It is probably a good time to think about another round of these.  It is a great way to keep that rapport with parents because SPRING FEVER is here!

You have all done an incredible job of working in the garden beds these last two weeks.  Thank you for locking everything up and taking care of our supplies.  Please remember to clearly mark what is planted so that we can all learn from what grows.  What a great place to take your learners out to make scientific drawings of the cycle of these plantings in their science notebooks.  

Some of you are planning end of year field trips.  Remember to use this document in planning and determining pricing.  I must sign off on this before you send information home to parents.  You also must remember to inform the cafeteria of your trip so that they can order accordingly.  THANK YOU!
