I am asking for the students to make a Valentine's box at home to bring. They can use any Kleenex, shoe, cereal, or other type of box to decorate how they would like. Try to use things you already have around the house. Here is our Class list list for Valentines. There are 19 students in our class.

Staar Simulation

STAAR PRACTICE TESTING

As many of you know, testing season is quickly approaching. During the next month, teachers will be administering STAAR simulations. The purpose of the simulations are to formally track what students have already mastered and to determine areas of growth. We like to identify these as "glows" and "grows." We look at data as a whole campus and together develop a plan of action to help students reach their maximum potential. In order to ensure a prime testing environment, we do close our campus to outside visitors on simulation and STAAR testing days. This means no classroom volunteers or visitors in the lunchroom, for all student K-5. This provides for a quiet building with limited distractions for staff and students. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Please schedule campus visits around the following dates:
