  • Please be aware of the schedule changes for each day Mon-Wed. Each day is a little different. Be prepared and flexible!
  • We are STAAR testing Mon-Wed this week. We have small groups all over the building. We must have a quiet testing environment.
  • There will be no announcements Mon-Wed this week due to STAAR.
  • When and if morning announcements are working again, work with your team to let summer birthdays come down. Just don't sent the whole grade level on the same day. Spit it up over the next couple of weeks. Also those that had birthdays this week and didn't get to appear can come on Thursday or Friday of next week.
