Summerhill Scoop

This was an awesome first week of testing! Thank you for your diligence and patience during the initial phase of testing.


Although we did have a few minor hiccups with the online testing, we did not experience the same concerns as some of our neighboring districts. We fully anticipate having the same experience with our 5th grade science and 6th grade math and reading tests in May. This is an amazing campus to be part of…Continue doing what’s best for students and they will be successful!


I want to start meeting with all staff individually before school is out this year. Meeting with everyone last summer was one of the best things I could have ever done as a new principal. It enabled me to get a better understanding of the climate and culture, as well as a deeper understanding of your personalities. I still feel like a new principal and I want to continue getting to know each one of you in order to grow as a family.


Feel free to share any questions, comments, concerns or good things during our meeting. Thank you for making Tannahill such a tremendous place to serve our community!

Message from Mielinski

Thank you to everyone who made this past week's STAAR testing a success! I was so proud to see how hard the students (and staff) were working. According to the TEA calendar we should receive testing results by April 19th (though I anticipate sooner than that). Please continue to tutor students that you believe are in need of extra assistance and continue to review power standards during classroom instruction with rigor.
