***STAAR***

Tuesday, May 10, 2016-3rd&4th Reading, 5th Reading Retest

Wednesday, May 11, 2016- 5th Science

This is a big week for everyone, STAAR has arrived! I have just a few things I would like to share as we begin this week....
  1. Jeans and tennis shoes all week, I know how stressful these testing weeks are.
  2. Please make sure that on testing days (if you are a proctor), you arrive with a sufficient amount of time to collect your testing materials on time. Your students should be collected by 7:45am, which means you should collect your materials before then. Remember, if several of you arrive to collect materials around 7:35am, then there will be a line and you will be late. Please make sure that you are not late and rushing, I would prefer that our students do not start their day in a frantic manner.
  3. Please be sure to keep the volume down as you pass in the hallways. Please take your recess later in the day, when testing is over.

Boys Baseball Team

Coach did not get any photos of our boys in action, however I was told that our 4th and 5th grade boys won 15-0. Wow! Just wow!

Student Growth and Progress

Mr. Quijano shared a story regarding one of his students recently, that I thought I would share with the rest of you. This young lady has shown tremendous growth this school year and now has that twinkle in her eye! Her level of confidence has sky rocketed, and she is excited about her accomplishments. What an inspiring story, thank you Mr. Quijano for what you do and for sharing.

This is why we all do what we do.
