STANDARDIZED TESTING REMINDER! APRIL 16TH - 19TH

Dear Parents,

Standardized Testing begins on Monday, April 16th.

PreKindergarten and Kindergarten students will test Monday through Thursday.

First - Sixth Graders will test Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Friday, April 20th, is a designated "make-up" day for students who have been absent and missed one or more tests.


No homework will be assigned this week.


FYI - TO MINIMIZE ANY DISRUPTION TO STUDENTS WHO ARE PREPARING FOR TESTING, CHILDREN ARRIVING TO SCHOOL AFTER 8:00 AM WILL BE ESCORTED TO THE GYM BY A STAFF MEMBER.


We ask parents to please make every attempt to schedule any appointments for your child after school or during another week. Look for more information in your student's Homeroom Teacher's Newsletter with suggestions for testing days such as:

  • Bring a couple of books to read during down time.

  • Bring a healthy snack and bottle of water.

  • Get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast (preferably something with protein.)

TEXAS DAY!

Howdy pardners! We're fixin' to have us a rip roarin' time on FRIDAY, APRIL 29TH!

THIS IS AN ALL-SCHOOL OUT-OF-UNIFORM DAY, AND STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO WEAR WESTERN DUDS!

All the fun starts at lunch time when we will be serving grilled dogs, chili, Fritos, and more! After lunch, wranglers will be participating in loads of activities! Mark your calendars, YA'LL!

CHANGE OF ADDRESS or PHONE NUMBER?

Please let the office know if there is a change in your address and/or phone number.

Thank You
