Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Shark Families,

We will continue completing any MAP Screening make-ups this upcoming week, so please make sure your student has a fully charged Chromebook each morning. For our virtual parents, please check your email for the STAAR commitment form if you are planning on sending your student to campus to take the STAAR tests during the week of May 10th. We look forward to a great week of learning!

Have a great week!

Courtney Rodriguez,
