Message from the Principal

Clara Love Families,


Well, I am sure it is no surprise for me to share that our overall attendance has dropped significantly this last six weeks. With the flu and other illnesses affecting the majority of families in our area, we understand and appreciate keeping your children home. Our 4th Six Weeks attendance incentive for students that missed one day or less was ice cream with Mrs. Wilkinson and me. We have decided to provide ice cream to ALL students next week!


We have some awesome Lil' Texans that have been shining lately. I am so very proud of those students that competed in UIL, Ultimate Book Challenge, PTA Reflections, DI Rising Stars, and the teams traveling to Abilene this weekend to compete in Destination Imagination. In addition, many of our students are presenting projects at EXPO 2018 on February 22nd. We have a talented group, and it takes courage, determination, and lots of extra time to commit to these groups. Way to go!


Warmest Regards,


Jaimie McAllister

Principal

Please consider volunteering for our K-2 "JA in a Day" on March 9th! JA provides you with all the materials and a brief training session to prepare you.

BOOM TIME is a SUCCESS

Have you heard of BOOM Time? We have this time about every other Friday from 7:45-8:30. Our students get to participate in a club they are interested in in Grades 1-5. Our Kinder students are getting to explore many different kinds of activities to activate interests such as scrapbooking, cooking, and art. We have found this time to benefit our students in many ways, including building positive relationships, positive self-concept, and willingness to try something new. Research shows that if kids are involved in at least two activities of interest, they are more likely to succeed in school. We would love to hear your feedback about BOOM Time and how it has impacted your child.
