Good afternoon. I just wanted to make you all aware that I will not be in class next week. My daughter is getting married...in Cancun!!!!! Rest assured that I have planned for this and have retained a very experienced substitute teacher. Many of you may know her, Anne Sundquist. She is a former teacher and administrator. She is also a member of the Magnolia City Council. I feel very comfortable leaving the students with her. I have let the students know, so they should not be surprised or worried about where I am. I have never left my class for a week, but this occasion definitely warrants it. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break. Thank you so much for understanding.
The Tomball STAGE will be presenting The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe beginning next week. We hope you can enjoy this production with your child so they can experience this wonderful tale about good overcoming evil.

Our UIL Coaching Sessions have been meeting now for a few weeks. Coaches are share hints, tips, strategies and test taking skills with the students to prepare them for our District UIL Academic Tournament on Saturday, January 13. (Some students are preparing at home and will meet with their event coach to take the pre-test or try out later in the season. Your coaches will get with you on the time and day.)
Remember, coaches will be selecting three students and two alternates to represent DPES at the tournament out of those they are working with. Coaches will communicate with you on the date, time and method of that selection.
We truly appreciate you getting your student up to school to school by 7:45 am. Some of you have encountered drop-off problems due to other parents parking in the drop-off circle to watch their child walk up to the school. We want to encourage parents to drive on out of the circle after dropping off so those parents behind can also drop their student off in time. ~Thank you!

We would appreciate you either contacting your student’s coach or Mrs. French if you student is unable to make their coaching session.
You can also sign up for the REMIND texts for UIL by texting @@dpesu to 81010. This is where I will notify you of any changes to a coaching session and update you on the tournament details. The UIL page on Mrs. French’s Edlio website is also updated frequently.
Lastly, we are working on a t-shirt design for this year’s commemorative shirt. Details on how these can be order will come in a future email.
I found this great site that has MANY practice questions for STAAR. It is even split up into categories. If you let your child practice on this site, be careful because the answers are at the beginning. Make them tell you how they got an answer every once in a while, to be sure they are actually working them out. Thank you so much for helping to prepare your child for the test!
