Avirett & Torres 18-19

Week of 4/8/19

STAAR Writing is Tuesday!

While you can't be in the room with your child to help them through the test what you do leading up to the test can set them up to do their best!

Please make sure your child:

  • gets a good night of sleep Sunday and Monday.
  • eats a healthy breakfast.
  • brings a healthy snack that won't get their hands messy, doesn't require utensils, and won't leak on or stain their testing booklets.
  • has a water bottle to drink.
  • brings a light jacket, sweatshirt, or sweater.


Your student may bring chewing gum, peppermints, and/or Lemonheads to help with focus and attention during the test.

A note on snacks:

Students will be working and testing. Because of this, we are asking that you do not send foods that will get their hands dirty (think anything that you would want them to wash their hands afterwards), foods that require utensils, or foods that could potentially leak on their test booklets (think pudding, Go-gurt, fruit cups).

Thanks in advance for your support!!!

New Transportation Form from the Office

We are excited to pilot a Transportation Form you can fill out online. This is in an effort to streamline the transportation change process for parents as well as our office. To access the form, go to our home page and look under "Quick Links" and click on the "Transportation Change Request" link. The link will be closed at 1 pm every day and will be reopened at 3 pm for the next day. We will be accepting changes by phone as well, but we would prefer everyone to try to use the link.
