HANDWRITING!!!

Parents,

We found out this week that one of the changes to the Writing STAAR is a new category called "Appropriateness"...and handwriting is a big focus for this category. They will be judged on whether their handwriting is "age appropriate" and legible. We will be working really hard on this and making sure all assignments are completed in their BEST handwriting...or it will be returned to them and they will need to redo the assignment!
