STUCO (Student Council) will be sponsoring their annual Denton Animal Shelter fundraiser starting Wednesday, April 27-May 6th.

STUCO members will be in the cafeteria and in the front foyer every morning from 7:20-7:45 selling PAWS for 25 cents each. Students will then take the PAW and turn it into their teacher.

The class that has the most PAWS will win a popcorn party. Last year Nelson raised $700! We would love to beat that this year!!

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - STAAR Testing

Our 3rd-5th grade students will be testing on Monday - Wednesday next week. If you are a parent volunteer, please remember that you will not be able to go into the classrooms on this day. Tuesday folders will be handled in the teacher workroom.

In addition, the campus will be closed to all other visitors. This includes lunch visitors.
