Welcome back fabulous lobos

Every year we reflect on how grateful we are for our alternative calendar. What a fabulous 2 weeks, with 7 days to go before we move into Turkey break.  Just love this time of year.  A huge shout out to Michelle and Sherri who came in over break to clean and prepare 506 for our new teacher.  Our new teacher is presently being processed.  We are hopeful she will be with us soon. 

What a fabulous family we are!  Many shout-outs are in order for our work prior to intersession.  Our PAWS Assemblies & GREAT helicopter Graduation were absolutely wonderful.  Many thanks to Michelle and Susan.  Our Road Runner food panty, just fabulous, thank you Laura and all who supported.  Fall Harvest raised over $5000 that we give back to our children.  Sherri rocks AVID.  Joann held a field trip over break for her children.  Cali held a clothing swap.  Maggie is preparing a pizza incentive for uniforms.  Many of us attended PD over break to enrich our work. Our parent conference days ran so smoothly promoting happy children and happy families. 

The next few weeks we will be embracing, 90 day plan monitoring, EXPLORA, Staff Holiday luncheons, Dia de las Estrellas, Secret Pal reveal, Jensen, Volunteer Appreciation breakfast and an SRM Winter gathering is in the planning stages.  Many thanks to all who consistently go over and above to support our children and each other.
