Dear Sem Families,

What a busy week this has been with STAAR testing Monday-Wednesday and Field Day. Field Day was a perfect way to end the week and the weather could not have been better. What an amazing day to see the kids play and have fun in the sun. A huge thanks to all of the volunteers and teachers but in particular to Coach Percle and Coach Stromberg. They definitely designed and implemented a top notch day for students.

Just a couple of updates and celebrations:

First, our Spring Creek BBQ night was a huge success. We earned approximately $1,300 for the school. Second, PTA is planning to donate money that was earned in the Fall during the boosterthon fun run to the school. The money donated to the school will be used for a variety of outdoor needs and wants. As a school, we are looking at purchasing picnic tables and chairs for students to have lunch at times or it could even be space used for outdoor learning, if needed. Also, benches for the front of the school are being looked at in order for visitors and parents to have space to sit out front. Lastly, gaga ball is being priced and we are checking to see if it can be added to the playground area.

Speaking of the playground area, there are plans to place some turf near the main playground so that students will have a nice place to run and play without falling on rocks and dirt. This is set to be installed this summer, so be on the look out.

We have 3 more weeks of school (13 days) which is still time to continue making a difference in students' lives and learning. We are committed to doing that and I always appreciate your support. With that said, please be looking for communication from your child's teacher about the final days for guided reading, homework, and tutoring.

Have a fantastic weekend!


Mr. Gonzales
