Drillapalooza : Tuesday, March 19th, 2019
A funny name, but a serious topic-student safety.  On the morning of March 19th we will conducting a trio of drills to ensure our students understand each safety drill and the differences between them.  We will run a slightly altered schedule this day. We will be having our fire/tornado/lock down drills this morning with time for our staff to talk to kids so they understand the importance of this. We have invited our local fire and police to join us and give us feedback for improvement. 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns call or text my cell 24/7.

With an Attitude of Gratitude,

Student Kudos
Carter Wyatt and team, NTX Tribe AAA 11U, won the Baseball Nation Championship yesterday in Mesquite. 4 games in the very cold! He pitched a no hitter facing 12 batters and striking out 10 of them! And followed with an over the fence homer and many hits. Congratulations, Carter!

From the Nurse
There are two vaccinations required by the State of Texas for 7th grade: Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and the meningococcal vaccine.  Typically students will receive these vaccines at their 11 or 12 year old check up.  If your student receives this vaccine, please email or fax a copy of their vaccination record to me.  Please don't wait until the week before school starts to get these vaccines.  Typically there will be a shortage of the vaccines, before school starts, because it is required of all 7th grade students in Texas.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you for your help!  My email is: and the fax # is 469-742-8401.
