A NOTE FROM MRS. COFFMAN

We have had a wonderful first part of our year! We attribute that to our wonderful support at home, dedicated teachers, and eager learners! We missed the students so much last spring and have been so excited to see them each day in our classrooms! The students are happy to be at school, and we are happy to see them each day! We have had an excellent first semester filled with joy, learning, and significant achievement towards educational goals for all students!


The elementary Christmas Program for Pre-K was precious. The children worked very hard with Mrs. Estrada and Mrs. Autry and did a wonderful job! The Holiday Musical, Flakes performed by grades K-4 was fabulous! The students worked very hard on the production and did a great job! Thank you to Mrs. Autry and all those who helped to make it such a success!


We have many eager readers this year! I love announcing the students who are working hard to meet their reading goals! Our fifth-grade students are doing an excellent job running our AR store, Broncoville. We love seeing the students work hard towards their goals and enjoy their rewards!


We hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Many blessings to you and your family as we bring in a new and prosperous year!

PRE-K

It has been a wonderful first semester in Pre-K. The students have made marvelous progress and I am so proud of each and every one of them! I am looking forward in working with your child in the upcoming semester. Please continue to work and read with your child at home. I truly appreciate all you do in helping educate your child.


I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year!

KINDERGARTEN

We are officially halfway to first grade! I can't believe it! It is truly an honor to be able to teach and love on these precious kiddos every day. I know this year has been difficult to navigate since COVID-19, but thank you for always being so understanding.


Please continue reading with your child, counting to 100, writing, and practicing ALL sight words over the break. We have made HUGE gains this semester and I want us all to come back strong and ready to take on part two. I am so excited for what is to come in the Spring. :)


I hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas break. I look forward to seeing everyone back on January 5th. Thank you for all you do for your child's education. Please reach out if you need anything at all. :)

ELAR/SS

I hope and pray that you all have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas, despite all the illness and shutdowns.

We have MAP tested, AR Star tested, and will BAS test when we come back. All that data will help us plan lessons and intervention to help us prepare for STAAR testing in the Spring.

I look forward to seeing everyone back on January 5th feeling fit and well and ready to tackle the new year.

Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
