News from Mrs. Diggs

Dear Providence Parents,

Patriot Families – Next week, our 4th and 5th grade students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their growth in learning this year as they take the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR). In order to provide our students an optimal environment and to follow appropriate procedures, our campus will be closed to all visitors, volunteers and guests on Tuesday, April 10th and Wednesday, April 11th. We will be able to resume as normal with lunch guests, visitors and volunteers on Thursday, April 12th. Please see notes from Mrs. Weiper regarding these STAAR Assessment dates below.

I am truly blessed to be able to serve our students, staff, and our Providence community. If I can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me by calling the school at 940-369-1900 or via email at

With Patriot Pride,
Jairia Diggs, M.Ed.
