I want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you making the whole AIMSWeb rigamarole work! I am always impressed by the can-do attitude of Hernandez teachers. Thank you to Casey Gembicki for passing on the Chrome book instructions. Thank you to Matthew Castilleja for all of his help and patient support. Thank you to Danya Gardner, Sandra F. Manning, and LaToya Morrison for stepping up and doing what needs to be done and for lowering all of our stress. And thank you to each member of the ELAR Department. Your work is noticed and appreciated.

- Love, Sofie

Thank you to everyone who was able to come to Baby La's baby shower or sent their well wishes. The La family is very grateful for all the love and support from our Hernandez family! :)

Special shout out to Laura Terry, Katie Schultz, and Briana Flores for organizing! Thank you to Lena Dominguez for a super cute diaper cake :)!

​​Special Thank You to all of the staff that nominated for the Learner Profile Ceremony. I would like to encourage any RRISD employee at Hernandez to nominate a student that never gets awards for a Learner Profile Award!
