Shark Bites

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

Hello Shark Families,

What a beautiful weekend to welcome in the first day of Spring! I know we are all excited for sunny days and warmer weather. We wrapped up a successful week of STAAR Interim testing in both 5th and 6th grades. We still have several students in need of make-up testing. For virtual students, please check your student email account for login information to complete your testing. For in-person learners, make-up testing will be coordinated with the classroom teacher. When all learners are finished with testing, score sheets will be sent home so that parents can see assessed areas in need of growth and areas of strength. Data will be used for classroom interventions and extensions as identified.


Also, Spring Pictures are coming up in just over a week! Please use the order form information below if you'd like to view backgrounds and packages ahead of time.


Have a great week of learning!

Courtney Rodriguez,

Principal
