STAAR Testing Schedule:

STAAR Testing is coming soon! Our first testing day will be Tuesday, April 6 for 7th Grade Writing. On this day, 6th graders will follow a normal schedule, while 8th graders will stay home to engage in learning through Canvas. This is so that we can utilize 8th grade staff to help administer the 7th grade test and allow for smaller groups of students in classrooms.

Please review important information and the full STAAR testing schedule HERE.

Live Like Lucas Color Walk

Lucas Harrison is a former SLJH student who tragically lost his life in a drowning incident last summer. We would love for our SLJH community to support this family in honoring his life and raise money for the Live Like Lucas Foundation, which will benefit students with special needs. We hope you will join us and register the whole family!
