Ervin Express Week of 4/27/15

The Last 6-Weeks of the Year!

Principal's Message

Start strong, stay strong, and finish strong by always remembering why you're doing it in the first place. ~Ralph Marston


Do you remember the reasons why you wanted to teach? Do you remember why you chose to work in a school or why you chose the field of education? For the next 6-weeks, reflect and recall those reasons......they will help you make it through!


You are a masterpiece! You are fully loaded and totally equipped for the race that's designed for you! Stay focused, stay strong, and let's finish this year strong!


Always J. N. Ervin Proud....Excellence Unleashed!

The 5th Grade READING STAAR SCORES are IN!

CONGRATULATIONS to Ms. Allen & Mr. Alonso!! All of their hard work paid off as 70% of our students passed the 5th Grade Reading STAAR test the 1st time! They met their goal! KUDOS!!!

WHAT IS THE KEY TO INCREASING YOUR STUDENTS SCORES ON I-STATION?

Have you looked at the answer choices your students selected while they were logged into I-station? Did you notice they chose a different vocabulary word than what was asked.....like cupcake instead of pitcher? Ask Ms. Weatherspoon what she did to bring all of her students from Tier 3 to Tier 1 in a month!!! Kudos to Ms. Weatherspoon!!
