Week of February 20th, 2023

A Message from the Principal

I want to send a special shout out to all the families who brought goodies to our Chocolate Extravaganza. The teachers loved it and were truly amazed at the thoughtfulness. We are counting down to the end of our 3rd nine weeks and spring break. Teacher and students are working hard to make sure our students are prepared for their interim assessments and eventually STAAR. It is important that students are at school every day as important concepts are taught each and every day! We look forward to the next few weeks and then our Spring Break! After that it will be a quick countdown to graduation and movement to the next grade! Thanks to all our parents and support you give the school!!!

We are excited to work each and every day with such talented students!
