Tomorrow: 5/18/18

We are super excited for our GE Celebration Ceremony tomorrow.  We are asking for students to bring a sack lunch because we will be operating on a different schedule as well as eating in our classrooms.  The cafeteria is offering a sack lunch for those that need to buy a lunch.  We are not allowing visitors tomorrow.  If you plan on taking your student out of school early, please do so before 12:45.  It will be very difficult to pull them out of the ceremony from 1:00-3:30.  We appreciate your help!
 
I will be ordering the books for our project that is taking place next week.  Please let me know if you have already ordered one and have not sent it in.  That way I have a better idea of how many books to order.
 
Thanks!
Mrs. Maddox

This week: 5/14-5/18

1. STAAR Monday and Tuesday
 
2. STAAR make-up Wednesday and Thursday
 
3.  GE celebration on Friday. Note from Mrs. Coleman: 
On Friday, our students will participate in a school wide assembly in celebration of earning Model Great Expectations School.   We will also be on a modified lunch schedule on Friday.  We are asking students to bring a sack lunch, if possible.  However, sack lunches will be sold in the cafeteria on Friday for students who choose to purchase a lunch.  Our Great Expectations Assembly is for Canyon Pointe Students and staff only.  Please no visitors or volunteers on Friday. We just cannot accommodate parents and students in the cafeteria at one time. Thank you for your understanding and support!  PTO will be providing a special treat for our students after the assembly.  I am sure you will hear all about it.

Class books went home today!!!!

Exciting news!  Our class books went home today.  The sad news is that the company did not apply the online orders correctly to Mrs. Selman's class. This is being corrected and they promise to have books out to us in 1-2 weeks.  I only had about 3 students that had incorrect orders in my homeroom.  They are fixing that as well.  If you received the wrong book, please send it back to school and I will see what I can do. If you did not receive a book and paid for one, please email me so that I can make sure your name is on the list they provided to me.  Have a great night!

Next Week: 3/5/18

1.  We will have our LESSON 15 spelling test on Friday.
