Greatness of Gallegos | 2 March 2012

March is upon us, STAAR and Stanford/Aprenda are just right around the corner, and the grind is getting to us all!

Yet, even as time is racing by, we need to take time to pause and recognize the AMAZING teachers and staff we have and the IMPRESSIVE work being done by our students.

A massive shout out goes to Ms. McBride, Ms. Espinosa, & Ms. Finley for going above and beyond to help our 4th grade students in these crucial, final 12 days before their STAAR assessment.

Family Literacy Afternoon was a resounding success!  Thanks to all who contributed — especially Ms. Ryans, Ms. Garcia, Ms. Tate, and the entire curriculum committee.

Ms. Gardea was just commenting the other day on how awesome the display cases look right now.  Shout out to Ms. Frazier, Ms. Henderson, Ms. Sparks, and Ms. Ortiz for showcasing our students’ work in a creative way!  Be sure to check them out!

Shout out to our 2nd and 3rd grade teams for doing an outstanding job implementing the Laser i3 program.  The 2nd grade unit on butterfly life cycles and 3rd grade unit on plants and pollination is challenging our students to think critically about science in an inquiry-based way that is new to both the students and teachers.  Pop into their rooms sometime this week to see more!
