Rhodes Middle School Families


First and foremost, my hope is that you and your family are well. There is no doubt that this school year has been filled with many challenges as well as opportunities. As we prepare for state exam, otherwise known as the STAAR exam, it is important that parents send their son/daughter to school every day. When your son/daughter are in school it gives them an opportunity to be better prepared and confident about their exam. Parents, I have had a one-to-one-conference with all students at Rhodes so that they understand how important the STAAR exam is this year. Two ways that you as a parent can support us with your son/daughter is to ensure that they bring their charged iPad or Chromebook daily and to make sure that every night your son/daughter completes 1-2 lessons on Imagine-Math (Online Reading Program) and another 30 minutes on I-Station (Online Reading Program). By working together, your son/daughter's chances of experiencing academic success will increase.


As always, if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact the school. We are here to support you. Thank you.

Familias de la escuela secundaria Rhodes


En primer lugar, mi esperanza es que usted y su familia estén bien. No hay duda de que este año escolar ha estado lleno de muchos desafíos y oportunidades. Mientras nos preparamos para el examen estatal, también conocido como examen STAAR, es importante que los padres envíen a su hijo/hija a la escuela todos los días. Cuando su hijo/hija está en la escuela, les da la oportunidad de estar mejor preparados y seguros para su examen. Padres, he tenido una conferencia individual con todos los estudiantes de Rhodes para que entiendan cuán importante es el examen STAAR este año. Dos formas en que usted, como padre, puede apoyarnos con su hijo/hija es asegurarse de que traigan su iPad o Chromebook cargado todos los días y asegurarse de que cada noche su hijo/hija complete 1-2 lecciones de Imagine-Math (lectura en línea). Programa) y otros 30 minutos en I-Station (Programa de lectura en línea). Al trabajar juntos, aumentarán las posibilidades de que su hijo/hija experimente el éxito académico.


Como siempre, si tiene alguna pregunta adicional, no dude en comunicarse con la escuela. Estamos aquí para apoyarte. Gracias.
