Third Graders will participate in STAAR (State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness) testing the week of April 21st.

Wednesday= Reading STAAR

Thursday/Friday= Make-up Testing Days (if absent on Tuesday or Wednesday)


  • Be sure that your child is well rested and well fed on those mornings.
  • No visitors are allowed on campus on STAAR testing days.
  • Electronic devices with Internet/Photographing capability are not allowed in a STAAR testing room. If possible, please refrain from sending these devices with your child on testing days. If, for safety, students do need to bring these items to school, they will be collected, labeled and secured while testing occurs. All electronic devices will be given back to the students before dismissal.
