We will have a couple of schedule changes for STAAR. On Tuesday and Wednesday, 1st Grade and 4th Grade will trade places for lunch, specials and PE/Music. Also, on Tuesday and Wednesday, 3rd grade and 5th grade will trade places for lunch, specials and PE/Music. We will have Art, Library and computer as usual. I won't need those folks to administer the test. Please don't take students to the playground in the morning. We will have lunch recess as usual as I won't have any students testing in rooms that face the playground by the time students start going out. Please remind your kids to be very quiet in the hallways especially when they are going to Library/Music/PE as we will have students testing in the computer lab, CM room and Mrs. Watt's room.

Morning Duty

Now that the weather is nice, please be outside near the curb for morning duty. Open car doors and assist students who need help getting out of the car. During Open House, I had several parents stop and comment about minor issues that could be prevented with a person outside. We can get a couple of students to help hold the outside door open for students and parents.

Also, if you have duty at the inside door, make sure that parents are funneled through the office. Remember that all visitors should have a sticker, or they should be sent back to the office.

Check out this STAAR humor! Happy testing! Thanks for shaing this with me Amber!
