OCTOBER 2023 NEWSLETTER
Happy Fall Yall!
I am proud to announce that our students are off to an outstanding start. I am so grateful of how well our students, parents and staff has come together to make our school successful! We were well represented at the McHi Homecoming Parade and had a beautiful float thanks to a group of parents that worked diligently to make it great! We also had the largest group of students show up to the McAllen Kids Marathon Kickoff event on Friday. It was amazing to see all our Rocket students out on the track walking and cheering.
We are completing beginning of the year assessments in all grade levels and this information will be shared with parents very soon. Our campus leadership team has been analyzing the data and is working with teachers to put a strong action plan in place to address any areas of weakness. We will then continue to assess students and monitor their progress through small group targeted learning sessions and possibly after school tutoring. Please know that teachers are creating prescriptive lessons to assist your child in meeting learning goals.
Our Rayburn PTO is excited for our Annual Fall Festival! Please support our school with this. We are looking for sponsors and volunteers. Please review the flyer below for more information. We have been able to add many improvements to our school with these funds as well as pay for many student activities/incentives. Future projects these funds will potentially assist with are playground upgrades, cafeteria decor and field trips for students.
Please stay attentive to our district and campus emails and posts. We have a lot of October activities scheduled and encourage your children and/or family to participate. Please know that we are here to support your child any way we can and we look forward to celebrating more successful moments for your child.

A Message from our Counselor, Mrs. Mascorro
In October we have our guidance lesson focusing on Bullying. This lesson is presented to the students in a child friendly way. It is communicated in the sense to help the students feel comfortable to speak up and unite against bullying.
