2015 - 2016 GOALS

70% of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will pass STAAR Reading, Math, Writing, and Science.

2. 25% of Economically Disadvantaged students will meet advanced performance in 2 or more tests.

3. 98% attendance rate for both teachers and students.

4. Earning 3 distinctions in either math, reading, science, student progress or closing the achievement gap.

5. Average of 2.0 or better on SPOTs.

We are engaged in the exact professional activities geared towards our goals: Cougar Huddles, Status Meetings, 2 week lesson planning, creation of common rigorous assessments, RTI, structured PLCS, content support provided by instructional coaches and grade-level leads, and data driven conversations. We must be fully committed to these practices and see them as opportunities to increase our instructional practice and to bring the best to our students every day.

In Recognition of You!

Teachers, you have taught, challenged and inspired us. We can't imagine a world without you. #BeATeacher
