January Parent & Student Update # 2

English Language Arts Interim Assessments

Students will be taking an assessment either on Wednesday or Thursday next week. This will provide our teachers with an opportunity to see where our students are academically and give the students an opportunity to work in the new online STAAR platform. Please make sure your child comes to school with a charged iPad everyday. Thank you!
