STAAR Testing...Done!

We have completed STAAR testing for this year! I am so proud of how hard the students worked and so impressed with their motivation and determination!

We wanted to let you know that because the testing is so late this year, results will not be out until mid-June. As soon as we get the results, you will have them mailed to you.

Field Trip: Thank you!

Thank you to our awesome chaperones for helping out at the field trip this week. Our trip wouldn't have been as successful as it was without you there!

We also want to give a big thanks to those who brought water and popsicles for us to enjoy at the park. You are appreciated! :)

Gator Games

Another successful Gator Games in the books! We had a lot of fun today, but BOY are we exhausted! Special thanks to Coach Maupin and Miss McHugh for organizing the day, PTA for organizing the shaved ice and providing lunch for all students, and for all parents who donated items or their time to make Gator Games the awesome day it was!

Cafeteria - Paying for LUnch

We wanted you to be aware that children are no longer allowed to charge their lunch if they have no money in their account. In order for children to purchase the regular lunch, they must have enough money in their account. If they do not, they will be given the cheese sandwich and sides for lunch. This is an end-of-year procedure. Thank you!

The ASPIRE Talent Showcase was the brainchild of three 4th grade ASPIRE students during the first year of the ASPIRE Academy. It's purpose was a chance for the ASPIRE students to get together across grade levels and share something they were passionate about through the arts. That first year it was held in Mrs. Hollinger's classroom since it was only 3 ASPIRE classes.

The next year these 3 students asked to do the Showcase again. Since the ASPIRE Academy was larger they split the day up so that 1st-2nd grade had a showcase and 3rd-5th grade had a showcase, but all showcases were in a class room.

This year we have five 5th grade students that were hand-picked by the originators before they went on to middle school. These 5 girls have gotten a good start on the planning, but since the ASPIRE Academy is now 7 classes - Mr. Boykin and Mrs. Fullhart are jumping in as the producers of the 3rd Annual ASPIRE Talent Showcase to help relieve the stress of putting on such a large show. The ASPIRE 5 classes will finish organizing and learning how to produce these shows. It will be a great experience in committee work and large group collaboration.

Once again due to the numbers of ASPIRE students and space available, the showcase is for our ASPIRE students only and will be in the afternoon after the 5th grade faculty softball game.
