From Mrs. Lay

Teachers and students are working hard to prepare for our upcoming STAAR testing. You can help your child be prepared for upcoming testing. Make sure that your child is at school everyday on time, schedule appointments before or after school if possible. Ensure that your child attends assigned after school tutoring sessions. On test days students need a good night's rest and to arrive at school on time with enough time to eat breakfast. Please avoid scheduling appointments on testing days.


Make sure you follow us on Facebook and check out our new Google parent calendar to keep up with all things Whiteside. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
