Game Day on Wednesday, May 10

We are so proud of how hard our third graders have worked in the past few weeks. We have been reviewing our curriculum from the entire school year to prepare for our STAAR tests and for fourth grade. As a reward, we would like to have a digital free game day. Not only will this be a fun experience, but without even knowing it the students will be using their STEAM skills. If you can send a board game to school with your child on Wednesday May 10th, we would appreciate your help.
