Week of June 8

Happy Summer Break!  We are looking forward to seeing everyone during our Tapping with Tiles and Apple Training this week.  We will also plan some fun school outings so that our new staff can start feeling like part of our famiLEE!

Tapping Out With Tiles Training will be on Tuesday, June 9.  First and Second grade designers will attend from 8:00-12:00 and Kindergarten designers will attend from 1:00-4:00.  Our session will take place in the yellow house flex space closest to the library.  You will receive flex hours for your time.  To learn more about Tapping Out with Tiles, click here.  

Apple training is on Wednesday and Thursday, June 10 and 11.  Please be here at 8:00 so that we can get everyone set up with technology.  We will start promptly at 8:30.  Light snacks will be provided and lunch is on your own.  See you in the yellow house flex space for this training, too.

As an employee of Coppell ISD you are entitled to attend professional development during the summer.  Our district is providing Balanced Literacy Training from June 15-June 17.  While I cannot require you to attend, I would highly recommend it if you are in town.  Some of our designers from Lee will be presenting during this time.  Since sign up was online, I had our director enroll all new hires, in case you wanted to attend.  Here is information about where and when the training will be held.
