CSA Weekly Letter – 2/7

February 7, 2020

Cornerstone Families,

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a great week. It’s absolutely beautiful outside today, so hopefully you have plans to get out and enjoy it.

Our staff shout-out this week goes to the one and only…Mrs. Pam Johnson!  In case you didn’t know, this week is national school counselors’ appreciation week, and we definitely appreciate Mrs. Johnson.  In addition to helping students transition into middle school as 6th graders and transition to high school as 8th graders, Mrs. Johnson is there for everything else in between.  She’s the driving force behind getting our kids talking to each other on Power Down Thursday, encourages healthy eating every day, and is a great person to see when you just need someone to talk to.  Thanks, Mrs. Johnson for all you do for all of us!

7th and 8th graders will have an opportunity to show what they know next week on the practice STAAR tests.  7th grade writing and 8th grade reading will take place on Monday, and 8th grade math happens on Tuesday.  We hope all 7th and 8th graders will do their best and provide valuable data to teachers on what interventions are needed.

There is only one week to our Valentine’s Dance.  Students should plan on joining us on Friday, February 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. for what is sure to be a fun evening.  Tickets are $5 at the door, and pizza, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. Come dance the night away…at least until 8 o’clock!

The Valentine’s dance also means it’s also almost time for Parents Night Out.  When you drop off your kids at the dance, head over to The Branch at 7710 Long Point for food, drinks, and fun.  Also, at this event, PTA will be collecting wine for our upcoming Birthday Bash event.  Bring a bottle of wine ($25 value or higher) or a Spec’s gift card ($25 or more) to donate, and each donation will be entered in the raffle.  This definitely sounds like a fun way to meet other CSA parents and pass the time while the kids are at the dance.  Have fun, parents!
