Valentine's Boxes!

Our class parties for Valentine's Day will be held on February 12th. Each student can work on a box at home and bring it to school on the 12th for our card exchange during the party! You can use a tissue box, shoe box, or any kind of box and get as creative as you like!

Class lists will be sent home soon. Please remember to make a card for every member of the class so everyone is included.

Check this out for some inspiration, if you need it!

Austin Field Trip (Purple Paper)

Please review the Austin outline and behavior guidelines on the purple paper and return it, signed, to your teacher.

STAAR Preparation

The time is fast approaching for the Writing STAAR on March 29th. As a reminder, please do not use the released tests to study. If you are interested in acquiring some resources for home use, teaching stores (such as Teacher Tools in Lewisville and Lakeshore Learning in North Dallas) have many books available for purchase.

Please keep encouraging your children and reviewing their writing with them!
