Principal's Message

Rucker Families and Friends,

Not only are the flowers in bloom, but so are the minds of our students! The best part of this time of year is seeing confidence in our kids and watching them take initiative for their own learning. While technology has its pros and cons, the conversations emerging from watching a frog or fidget spinner appear before our very eyes in our new 3D printer, are priceless.

Tomorrow is our rescheduled STAAR testing day for our 4th graders. If you are a virtual learner who plans to test tomorrow, please make sure you have notified our counselor Ms. Collien.

( ) If you are a parent of a 4th or 5th grade student who originally signed up to eat lunch with your child tomorrow, please see information from your child's classroom teacher for tomorrow's change. No other grade level lunches are affected tomorrow and those who signed up may attend as planned.

Throughout the next few weeks continue to check our Upcoming Events and be on the lookout for specific details from your child's classroom teacher. We have so much to look forward to!

Have an amazing Sunday,

Principal Spears
