Welcome to 2016!

What a great week! I have truly enjoyed watching our kids in the halls, at the 8th grade visit and at basketball games. I hope everyone enjoys a nice three day weekend with your families. Please take time for yourself to relax and recharge. See you Tuesday!


Great job in our Science classrooms!

Tex Hill students get up close and personal with one rather notorious amphibian. This week Tex Hill 7th graders had the opportunity to begin the dissection of frogs. Ms. Henning and Mr. Pacheco kept their students busy allowing them hands on experience during the process.

Funny Things I Heard In The Hall

While at lunch duty a group of boys asked me a Science trivia question. "Mrs. Shore, how do frogs breathe? There is no way you are going to believe this!!!" I said please tell me. One boy quickly said "They breathe from their skin!" He then put his arm on my arm and said "you smell like cafeteria".
