Testing and Teacher Appreciation Week

Parents,


Testing season starts in earnest on Monday. Many of your students will be taking Advance Placement exams and the state of Texas End of Course (EOC) exams this week. We are thankful for their hard work and confident that their exams will reflect what they already mastered.


This week is also Teacher Appreciation Week. Please take a moment to let your child's teachers know how much you appreciate them for their efforts this year.


Have a great week.
