From the Principal:

Thank you for helping to make Teacher Appreciation Week a special one for our staff! We appreciate YOU!

Next week is STAAR testing for our campus and campuses around the state of Texas. Please remember that we will be a closed campus Monday through Wednesday, and possibly Thursday and Friday for make up testing.

If your child is in Grades 3-6, please make sure that he/she gets a good night's sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and is at school on time each day of testing.

Thanks for your help in making our big administration of STAAR a successful one! We greatly appreciate it!

Have an amazing weekend!
