Shout Outs

Thank you to all the faculty and staff sending in your SHOUT OUTS and Pictures!!!



Thank YOU to all the SYLVAN and Paredes Tutors for supporting our students success!!! We will miss you!!


Thank YOU to Mr. Hendricks, Ms. Kinlsow, and anyone else who helped with STAAR prep for this week!!!


Thank YOU 8th grade teachers and staff for ALL your hardwork and dedication this week and last week with our SSI!!!


THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR SETTING OUR STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS EVERYDAY!!




FROM MS. KINSLOW- I would like to give a shout out for all the help and support I received this week, especially to Vicente, Beth, Vivian, and Mary Faye for working late on Friday and to the amazing 8th grade team for giving up some off periods this week! We would have been living at Paredes this weekend without all of you. Also thank you to Pat and Debra and the entire office for preparing snacks and lunches as well as fielding a ton of testing questions. You ladies are truly amazing!

Thank you all for your hard work and keeping me sane.


FROM Mr. KRAWL- I want to thank all of the teachers who brought their students to see our play "The Rot" Friday. Please pass along to your students that they were an excellent audience for our performers. Their respectful behavior allowed my actors to feel out the audience response and adjust their volume and performance timing to it. It was one of those rare reciprocal exchanges between audience and actor that made it a positive experience for everyone. And kudos to Ms. Torres-Solis for her guidance in the beginning that set things rolling in the right direction.

Thanks again for generously providing you class time to this event.
