Florence Update

May 13, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

It was a great week at Florence Elementary! We are so proud of our third and fourth graders for working hard on the STAAR test. The rest of the school went about their learning, but helped maintain a quiet environment so the older students could concentrate. It was a real team effort!

We want to give a big thank you to Andrea Saitis for coordinating lunch and snacks for the two days of STAAR. It was so helpful and very much appreciated. We also want to thank September Wade and the PTA volunteers for our final Spirit Store today. Awesome job!!!

We have a lot of activities coming up, so please check the below calendar and the website calendar for all upcoming events.

Have a great weekend!
