Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Shark Families,

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend enjoyed with family. As we jump into a brand new week of learning at Smith, we want to remind you that streaming will be disabled in FISD from 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 4/6 as well as Thursday, 4/8, due to testing. This will affect virtual live conferences during each of those time frames. Please contact us for any questions.

As we look forward, the countdown is on! We have 7 weeks of instruction left in this school year and your students are working hard to create goal-setting plans for areas of growth and areas of strength. The student goal-setting sheets will be utilized for intervention plans to fill in any areas of needed growth so that they can show what they know on STAAR at the end of May! Encourage your students to keep growing and working hard. I can't wait to see how many goals will be mastered in just a few short weeks.

Have a great 4-day week!

Courtney Rodriguez,
