The Rattan Report
April 4, 2016
From the Desks of Mr. Frazier & Mrs. Reddell
The first round of STAAR testing is behind us, and we are very proud of how hard our 4th and 5th graders worked during testing days! Round 2 of testing will include 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, and will be the week of May 9th.
The next PTA meeting will be April 12th starting at 6:30p, and this is an important one as PTA is looking at the selection of board members for next year. Our PTA does so much to support our students, and our volunteers are crucial to continuing that support. If you are interested in volunteering for PTA and being a part of their leadership board, please contact Stephanie Dolton , Karen Easterwood or Carrie Butler for more information, or visit the Rattan PTA Facebook page.
May Bond Election
Anna is growing rapidly, and our school district is expanding just as quickly. Current conservative estimates show our student population doubling in just 8 years! In the May bond election, voters will make an important decision on how we are able to meet that student growth while still providing an excellent education for all students. Click here for more information about the bond election, and be sure to mark your calendar and attend one of the information and Q&A sessions Mr. Slaughter will be presenting on April 11th and 12th.
Looking ahead, here are some upcoming events to note on your calendars:
Thu. April 7 - 1st Grade Field Trip
Mon. April 11 - Bond Election Presentation by Mr. Slaughter @ 6:30p in the AHS auditorium
