The STAAR test is next week! Students will take the Math test on Tuesday and the Reading test on Wednesday.

Our students have worked hard all year and are ready to show what they know. Please make sure your student is well rested, gets to school on time, and has a healthy

breakfast on STAAR days.

Week of April 1st

Stay up to date by reading the newsletter, checking planners, and following Red Oak Elementary on social media.

  • Dress Code: Please make sure your student is following dress code daily. Jackets worn indoors, as well as leggings worn under skirts/shorts, must be in dress code.

  • Class Dojo is an important form of communication that we use often. Some subject reviews, important class information, and messages are sent through this app/website, so please make sure you are checking it daily.

  • Please continue to check your student's planner daily. This is a great resource for communication.

  • SNACK Reminder: Because 5th-grade lunch is not until 12:20, we are allowing 5th graders to bring a HEALTHY snack. The snack must be something they can eat while continuing to work, and the snack must not require a spoon and cannot be messy.

Education Galaxy is an awesome new resource for our campus. Please have your student log on for extra practice at home. The parent letter is below.
