Happy Mother's Day!
0-100 | What Would You Say to Your Mom?

I would like to wish all the moms and grandmoms a very Happy Mother's Day. I hope you enjoyed your day.


It is another busy week ahead. Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be STAAR testing Monday through Wednesday. Although we are not testing we know that testing is going on and we know that we have to be very quiet and respectful throughout the building.


Due to testing the computer lab will NOT be open these mornings as the room will need to be ready for testing. If your child gets to school early and generally goes to the lab, he or she will need to go to the gym instead.

Field Trip to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
We had a blast on our field trip to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History! Thank you to all the parents and chaperones that attended. The kids enjoyed touring the museum and watching "Born To Be Wild". The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed a picnic lunch on the lawn. Great memories made!
