A NOTE FROM DR. COFFMAN

We had a great and busy week! The students worked hard on their STAAR test! We are proud of all the gains we have made this year! The teachers and students exhibited hard work and dedication this year. Our students are going places in the future and we are blessed to watch them thrive! We strive to build strong leaders and good citizens both inside and outside the classroom.



Please save the date! We are going to have an awards ceremony for all students on May 26th. The students will need to dress to impress at a celebration just for them. The ceremony will be held in the gym and our schedule is very full. Please make sure to exit quickly at the end of the ceremony because we will be moving directly into the next grade level's awards.
