April 2015 STAAR Week

Hello Families,


Math STAAR is Tuesday and Reading STAAR is Wednesday. Kids have been working hard to prepare so now they can show what they know! The most important thing you can do is encourage them and tell them how proud you are of them and remind them to use the strategies we have practiced at school. Please make sure kiddos have a good night's sleep and a nutritious breakfast. I think they are ready! I am proud of these Mighty Third Graders!!


Third, fourth, and fifth graders test on Tuesday and Wednesday. Fifth grade will also test on Monday. Please remember there are no volunteers or lunch guests on testing days. Thank you!
