The State of Texas 2014-2015 School Report Card for Mendenhall Elementary has now been released, and posted to the Mendenhall website http://k12.pisd.edu/mendenhall-elementary-school/tapr.

The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the “School Report Card Definitions.” If you have any questions concerning the School Report Card, please let us know.

Box Tops

Our Mendenhall PTA is collecting box tops. This is a fast and easy way to make money for our school. Please cut out the box tops from the packaging of foods or items that you purchase and send them to school with your child. Our teachers will be happy to collect these for each grade level. The more we collect, the more we earn. Send your box tops in today!!
