From the Principal:

Thank you for helping us to have a successful big administration of the STAAR test!

It's hard to believe that we only have 1 1/2 weeks of school left! Next week, we are beginning Academic Olympics. Each grade level has planned some fun, educational activities with our students. Mrs. Grey is in charge of this event and has worked hard to make sure it's fun for our students!

Next week is also College and Career Week. You should see a 1/2 sheet flyer in your child's Thursday Exchange papers that tells you all about it. Be sure to read through it so you know what's going on at LSRO!

Have a great weekend!

Counselor's Corner :

The LSRO character trait for May is CARING. As summer approaches, start thinking about ways you can model and encourage a caring attitude in your children this summer. They will have many opportunities to interact with family and friends, so use those interactions as a perfect time to talk about helping when they see a need in someone else, showing empathy, and encouraging others during struggles!
