Letter from Principal Nelson

Howdy Cougars!


On Friday afternoon we sent home STAAR scores from the 1st round of tests (8th grade Reading and 8th grade Math). If your student did not receive their scores, they will certainly have them in hand on Monday. We apologise for not getting them all to you on Friday, but AISD delivered 700 of the individual scores at 2:00 pm and then the other 300 shortly after 4:00. Overall, our school performed extremely well in comparison to our sister schools and we almost led the district in the number of non-8th grade students taking the Math test. There are plenty of feathers in our caps for our kids, and especially for our amazing math teachers.


If your student did not pass (approaching grade level), rest assured we are working hard on our end to make sure they do so the next time the test is administered in May. We will be adding interventions, tutorials, and test-taking tips prior to ensure success.


Friday Frenzy! On Friday, April 28th, Small Booster Club will be hosting the event that all future events will be measured up to...the Friday Frenzy! Students will pay $10 and get to play basketball, volleyball, Cougar Ball, ping pong, foosball, video games, board games, and enjoy concessions from 4:00 until 7:00. With the $10 ticket comes a piece of pizza and a drink, as well as access to all the above. We are raising money for our Athletic Booster Club so we can continue with our “no cut” policy and provide coaches and equipment for various C-teams. We will also be adding Cross Country, Ultimate Frisbee, Golf, and Lacrosse next year, so we’ll need the funds to start the programs.


Make sure your student attends this healthy, fun-filled way to contribute to our campus.

* 6th Grade Pick up will be at 6:45

* 7th Grade Pick up will be at 6:55

* 8th Grade Pick up will be at 7:00


Have a great week! I look forward to seeing you at the various events and activities around campus these next few weeks.
