IGNITE WEEKLY NEWSLETTER - Dec. 5th - Dec. 9th
Greetings IGNITE Family,
I hope your weekend was full of excitement and joy! It has been another busy and fruitful week at IGNITE. Thank you, families, as always, for your dedication to our campus and school community. As we take on the week ahead, I want to remind parents that our upcoming district ACP testing will begin next week, December 12th. Please ensure your students bring their technology fully charged to school daily. As shared in last week's SPARK, ACPs are critical assessments designed to provide us with information on where students currently are in preparation for academic success on STAAR and beyond here at IGNITE.
This week begins our 12 Days to Christmas countdown. Please see the activity dress attire flyer below for students who desire to participate.
Parents, please join us via Zoom this Wednesday, December 7th, for our Title-1, Parent-Student School Compact, and Parent Involvement meeting. I've included the information flyer for this event below for more details.
Lastly, thank you, IGNITE teachers and staff, for the wonderful things we see you and our students doing daily within the classroom. Parents, your children are working hard, and it is exciting to see the academic and social growth they are making here at IGNITE!
Have a wonderful week! We Are IGNITE! AP Barksdale
