  • This week we will take a Mock STAAR test to gauge our progress so far. This data will help us see where students need more assistance at and where students are doing great. We will complete this mock test during class over 3-4 days. Results will come home shortly after the test is completed, so you know where your child is at in regards to the sixth grade material.
