Friday is our VALENTINE'S PARTY! Please see the email below (sent by Angie Stephens). If you DID NOT receive this email, please let me know so I can make sure she has your email address. Thanks!

Hello everyone the girls will have a Valentine's Day party on Friday, February 12th from 3:30 to 5:00. I will send out a sign-up genius sheet if they would like to contribute to the party. They may also bring valentines for the girls if they wish, there are 19 girls in the class. Please let me know if I'am missing anyone's email.


Report cards are being sent home today:). We had an AMAZING 1st semester, and we are very proud of all of our students' hard work. They are such a committed and driven group of young ladies! We are excited to see their continued excellence during the 2nd semester!

Please Join Us! Tuesday, February 16th at 7:00pm

On Tuesday, February 16th at 7:00pm, we will be having a parent meeting for any new families interested in WOGA School for the 2016-2017 school year. It is hard to believe it is planning time already!

Last year, we had 2 current families that were able to join us at the meeting to answer questions from a parent perspective. We would love it if any of you (or all of you!) would join us this year to be able to provide a parent's perspective.

Suzanne Ramirez, the Connections teacher who has joined us for the previous 2 years, will also be there.


For next year...

  • we will continue to offer school options for team girls in grades 3-8 (no change from this year)
  • the class size will be limited to 22 students (same limit as this year... an 11:1 ratio)
  • Missy and Melissa are back for more:)
  • current students have enrollment priority (OF COURSE!).
  • if you know that you do not plan on returning next year, please let me know asap. We currently have 19 ladies, with 5 graduating 8th graders who will be leaving us for high school (sob!!!). Based on this, I am anticipating a maximum of 8 potential new students.
  • more questions... just ask:)

STAAR Testing Update

Connections students are public school students, and will take the STAAR tests in their assigned subject areas on state testing days. This is one area where we don't have our typical flexibility. Tomorrow, you will receive a personalized email with your daughter's exact testing dates. The general dates can be found on the linked Google Calendar, as well.

Students will take the STAAR tests off-site at a location that will be assigned by Connections. Last year, the Frisco locations were near the Dr. Pepper arena. Parents will need to arrange to transport students to and from the assigned testing sites on the assigned days (you can also carpool).

Testing is typically in the morning, and students join us at school after they are finished. Please plan on missing morning practice on testing days, due to assigned times.

Starting next week, we will begin doing STAAR review with students, They will also begin doing STAAR prep in their live lessons to ensure that they are prepared when their testing days arrive.

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding STAAR testing. As specific information becomes available from Connections, it will be posted here:). You will also receive a call from your testing coordinator at Connections approximately 2 weeks prior to testing to confirm testing details.
