Saturday, May 7th, MISD Bond Election
Saturday is the last day for the bond election. If you have not had a chance to vote, stop by any McKinney ISD middle school, or the Elections Office on Redbud to cast a ballot in the McKinney ISD Bond Election. On average, fewer than 10% of registered voters participate in school bond elections, so please make your voice heard. All you need to bring with you is your driver’s license or an approved form of photo identification. If you need any additional information please visit http://www.mckinneyisd.net/bond.
3rd Grade STAAR Test, May 9th & 10th
In order to alleviate any testing day jitters, we highly encourage that each child get a good night sleep and healthy dinner the night before testing. We also encourage your child to have a hot, healthy breakfast the morning of testing. We will begin testing first thing in the morning, so all students should be on time to school. Students should dress in layers for testing day (in case they get cold or hot) and bring a water bottle and their normal snack to school. Please send snacks that are not messy (no Cheetos or anything that could ruin their test documents) and that are unwrapped and put in a zip lock bag. Students may also bring a small bag of unwrapped mints/gum with them in a ziplock bag. In addition to a snack, students should bring extra number 2 pencils (pencils will be provided, but it is always good to have a spare), a highlighter and a chapter book to read after testing. Please give your child lots of encouragement and let them know how proud you are of the growth they have shown this year. We know that our students are amazing and will do a great job!
Due to STAAR testing, Monday through Thursday will be closed campus days. There will be no volunteers or lunch visitors during this time. If you have any questions regarding the STAAR test or the upcoming week, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.
