The Principal's Post
Vol. 3, Issue 8 - July 2021
PGE- Preparation, Goodwill, & Excellence
The Principal’s Post runs once a month with weekly updates included in the grade level newsletters. Below are the newest dates, resources, and happenings.
Park Glen Community,
Summer time is here and I hope you all have been able to enjoy time with family and friends. Some of us were off for about two weeks while others, while "on vacation," have been meandering in and out of the building getting rooms ready and prepping curriculum - education, it's a passion!
For the 2021-2022 school year our theme will be, "Let's make the most of this beautiful day." We want our families to know how much we enjoy being involved and contributing to your child's education. If Covid did something for us, it is this: An appreciation for working together and knowing somethings require a lot of patience. Thank you for your help throughout this past Covid year and during February's Winter Storm Uri. You all have been great in supporting our teachers and staff in keeping the safety and education of our students the main thing, the main thing.
Below you will find some updates regarding campus facilities, dates, and activities.
Wishing you all good health and much happiness,

2021 STAAR Results
The results include exams in math and reading for grades 3-8 along with 4th and 7th grade writing, 5th and 8th grade science, 8th grade social studies and high school end-of-course exams in Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology, and U.S. History. (School Testing)
Unlike this trend, Park Glen Elementary's students performed quite well with 87% and 90% of our students passing the math test in the third and fourth grades, respectively. While I am not a proponent of a single test defining a student or a school, I am for reviewing our data and looking at trends. Our data throughout the year demonstrated growth and this is very good. I am for celebrating our successes, reflecting on the practices that went well, and modifying those that were not effective. We will continue the work ahead and ask for your continued support as we do so.
