STAAR Testing Reminders

  • Please check all of your outside walls and remove anything that might provide a hint to a tester in the area of reading, math, or science. Look at this from a TEA perspective. :)
  • Review your e-mails for a note from Linda with a list of closures for the week.
  • Review your e-mails for a note from Kelli with a modified specials rotation to allow the kids a little big of movement time.
  • Thank you for your daily preparation that ensures that our students will have a chance to show what they know this week! I appreciate your efforts and know that you have worked very hard all year!

16/17 Update

No staffing changes to announce today, but we will be getting all new student desks next year. We will provide details about the transition as soon as we can.

We will be hosting Kids Club again this summer. :) (Channel your happy thoughts here...) We will provide details as soon as we can about which rooms will be used and how the campus will be impacted.

Access to the campus through your prox card will be deactivated beginning on June 13th. Your card will not work again until July 30th. Since Kids Club will be here anyway, this should force us all to relax and take some time off! The district is planning to have air conditioning back on and running from 7:30 - 4:30 daily beginning on August 6th. They will provide air on the weekends from then until the first day of school. Thanks, AISD!

No staff birthdays this week!
