WOW!  Go Mavericks!!!

Tomorrow, Thursday Nov 10th, is the final day to hand in the Ice Cream Contest Form to compete for a whole-grade Ice Cream Party on Friday November 18th.

With 30 forms, 6th Graders have a solid lead over their closest rival.  The 7th and 8th graders are lagging behind with 19 and 15 forms turned in, respectively.

Hundreds of forms have yet to be returned so 7th and 8th grade can easily catch the 6th graders if they bring them in tomorrow.  Don't forget, donations are not required to participate.

We are MORE than halfway there!

This year, your donations will continue to help integrate and support Technology:

To extend the lifespan of past technology investments the PTSA established a Tech Operating Fund. It is essential to set aside money today to cover the cost of future equipment maintenance and repairs.

With the use of iPads and Airserver, teachers are able to differentiate instruction in class and students are using apps and digital media presentations to enhance classroom learning. Currently, sixty-four iPads are used across 10 classrooms and in 6 different departments. Because of these enhanced learning tools, student engagement has gone up in Science, Math, Social Studies, and Language Arts. For Special Education students, Math scores have gone up as well.

2016-2017 Tech Operating Fund Allocation:  $4,000
2016-2017 District Technical Support:  $3,000
IPads and AirServer:  $14,000
