STAAR Writing

We have been busy preparing our 4th graders for their STAAR Writing that will take place on Tuesday, March 29, 2016. Vicki Reynolds, a writing consultant from Region 10, has spent several sessions with our entire staff and the intermediate staff during this school year. Ms. Reynolds has observed the 4th grade classrooms, modeled writing strategies with our 4th graders, and has shared many valuable resources with our teachers. Today we welcomed a visiting author to speak to our 4th graders to provide them writing inspiration. The author's name is Laurie Cockerell from Ft. Worth. She has written several children's books such as Magnificent Sam, Founder's Fables, and The Miracle. The students enjoyed this author's visit!

Thank you to Maypearl Lion's Club and Dr. Brown for providing the Vision Clinic yesterday. We have 7 elementary students who will receive new glasses!
