Spring Break is here! We are out of school beginning Monday, March 13 through Friday, March 17. School will resume on Monday, March 20. We hope you all enjoy a wonderful break from school!

When we return, we will only have 9 1/2 weeks of school remaining in the 16-17 school year! These are busy and important weeks, full of learning, projects, and assessments. Let's all work together to make these last weeks of school the best ones yet!

Have a great Spring Break!

Counselor's Corner :

Our 4th grade students will take their STAAR Writing test on March 28. Our 5th graders will take the STAAR Math test on March 28 and their Reading test on the 29th. If you have a 4th or 5th grader, start planning to help them do their best by not scheduling doctor or dental appointments on these days.

From the Registrar:

We have had a great start to our Open Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year!!!
