A big thank you to the coaching staff, especially Coaches Huffman, Williams, Lampe and Masuku for supporting us in the library by talking with student athletes who have library overdues!

Thank you 8th grade ELA for a great first round of reading STAAR testing! I appreciate the hard work you have put into planning and preparing students to make progress and pass on their second try!

- Yvette Bradford

Thank you to Ms. Aguilera, Ms. Scott, and Mr. Swords for assisting me with the recent 911 emergency involving a student. Your efforts were greatly appreciated by me as well as the student and we had a positive outcome due to the teamwork displayed by all. Could not have done it all by myself ----- THANKS SO........MUCH!!!!!!
