STAAR Schedule

  • The schedule will change because of STAAR. The Google Doc below has the schedule. Please note that there are 2 tabs - one for Monday and Tuesday and one for Wednesday.
  • The state has decided that they have enough information about everyone's break times. We are no longer required to keep track of break times for students. We will just have to record the total amount of time each student uses to take the test. Directions from the revised manual are included below.
  • No Art classes as Denise Parr will be administering the test.
  • It looks like Monday will be rainy, but if it clears off, no recess on the playground. Once everyone is finished, you may go back out onto the playground. You can set out the cones and block off the bus loop if weather permits.
  • I attached a link to the STAAR video I will show in the morning meeting. The kids are always asking me to see it again, so I attached it so you can show it again.

PRAYERS NEEDED

  • Terri Steigleder's daughter-in-law, Brittany needs many prayers! They recently found out that she has developed a second tumor on her brain. They have been treating the original tumor with chemotherapy. Tillman and Brittany will be meeting with th doctor to discuss the possibility of surgery but it is risky. The newlyweds and their families need your prayers. Please add them to any prayer chain you can!
  • Denise Parr has a disease that causes her to lose potassium from her body. It is a rare disorder and not a lot is known about effective ways to treat it. She has been experiencing issues with it lately. Please pray for her.
  • Keven and Carolyn's grandson, Jonas is still having seizures, and they are severe and scarey! He's been to doctors at Cooks and Dallas Children's Hospital. They have not been able to find the cause or an effective treatment. Please continue to pray for him and their family!
  • Stephanie Hendrix's mother-in-law (who is also Cali McQueen's grandmother) passed away on Saturday. Please keep the family in your prayers.
  • Trey Williamson (Landon's dad) has been moved to a rehab facility. After the ATV wreck, he had surgery. After the initial surgery, he had some sensation in his knees. He still has no movement in his arms or legs. Please continue to pray for their family!

I hope you all enjoyed Teacher Appreciation Week! Thanks for all you do for our students!
