Week of March 21-24

I hope you all had a wonderful and restful Spring Break and had the opportunity to create many priceless memories.

As we wind down the month of March, there are several important events I would like to highlight and invite you to participate in throughout the coming weeks.

March brings our first round of STAAR testing for students. 4th grade students will be taking the writing STAAR on March 29th. 5th grade students will be taking the math STAAR on March 29th and the reading STAAR on March 30th. The rest of our testing will take place in May. Our teachers continue to work very hard to provide the best learning opportunities for our students. We are confident of success for each child. Please remember to have your child get plenty of rest the night before these tests and emphasize your confidence in their ability. Thank you for being such amazing partners in education at our special school

Report Cards will be distributed on March 24th. This is a great opportunity to sit down with your child and review the plans and goals you all drafted in January. Take time to discuss how you can synergize and make the best out of the last 9 weeks of school.

Our awesome PTA and parent volunteers have been working tirelessly in planning our upcoming Spring Carnival to be held on Friday, April 1st. We look forward to seeing your entire family here.

Our Kinder Round Up is scheduled for April 5th. If you have children who will be turning 5 before September 1st or know of any families within our community, please share this date with them as we will be sharing important registration information.

Again, thank you for your continued support with all of our endeavors. I continuously applaud the Roan Forest Community for supporting our Trailblazer Leaders.

Did you get to do any Spring Break cleaning? Boxes are available in each classroom to collect donated books, DVDs, CDs, comic books, audio books and video games as part of the NEISD Used Book Sale. Last year, RFE families donated nearly 2,500 books and helped earn a profit of almost $950 to benefit our school. Each student that donates 12 books will receive a Spirit Stick.
