3rd Grade News

2014-15 School Year, Edition #19

April 13-17, 2015


We are in the middle of STAAR Math Camp this week. In order to promote unity we are asking that the students wear the following colors on the corresponding days:

Monday - Yellow

Tuesday - Orange


Thursday - Blue

Friday - Red


Next week our students are taking the STAAR Math & Reading Test. Here are the following things that you can do to help prepare your child to be the most successful.

  • Get a great night of sleep on both Sunday and Monday night
  • Return the "Orange Paper" to declare whether or not your child will be getting a sack lunch or bring their own on both of those days.
  • No Pressure. We are doing our best to prepare them and we want them to be loose and relaxed on testing days.
  • Have your kids wear comfortable and quiet shoes. A quiet testing environment is helpful for all students.
  • Remember there are no visitors on testing days to EAJ. We will see you after school if you need us!
