Reminders & Updates

Warriors,


Thank you for a great week of testing. Our scholars strove to do their best and our teachers provided the support they needed. If you child did not take the MAP test, makeup MAP Testing will begin on Tuesday, August 31-Thursday, September 2nd.

Tuesday- 6th grade

Wednesday- 7th grade

Thursday- 8th grade

We are looking forward to receiving our scholars results by late September.


Thank you, parents, for getting them to school on time and ensuring they are ready to learn. Again, we apologize for your scholars being picked up and getting home later than usual, but our transportation department is making the necessary adjustments to pick up and drop our scholars off on time. Please download the ZPass app so that you may track your scholars and their daily bus routines. Should you have any questions, please email at zpasshelp@springisd.org.


Reminders


Masks are required. Parents, please ensure you send your scholar with his/her mask EVERYDAY. Students without their masks will not be allowed to enter their classrooms; they will be allowed to spend the day in the Extension Center (EC) class and will not eat lunch in the cafeteria with their grade level. We are experiencing a shortage of masks. If you would like to donate masks to the school, please do so.


Remind your scholars to bring their water to school daily. To minimize the spread of germs, the water fountains are on ONLY to refill the students’ containers, not to drink from.


Students are to wear their belts to avoid their pants from dropping below their waste exposing their undergarments. We need your support in this endeavor.


Twin Creeks has high expectations that each of our scholars are capable of adhering. We need our scholars to focus on their academics and to communicate effectively when someone is bothering them opposed to inappropriately responding or reacting to various situations. Remind them to keep their hands to themselves and to speak politely. Equally important, they need to follow staff members directions the first time.

Progress Reports

This is a reminder that this year we are on a 9-week grading cycle. Students will receive a progress report after the third and six 6th weeks and then their report card after the 9th week of each grading cycle. Make certain you are reviewing their weekly grades in HAC and encouraging them to complete their assignments daily. If you do not have your HAC username/password, here is a link to Home Access Center Resources (Video and Presentation) to get started: https://wke.lt/w/s/mvn2ty.

Fun Friday

This Friday, September 3, 2021, we will be wearing the colors of our favorite colleges and universities to help promote higher education. Make certain your scholar joins in on the fun.
