Amazingly, 2 of the 3 STAAR tests are NEXT WEEK! STAAR Math is on Tuesday, March 29 and STAAR Reading is on Wednesday, March 30. Students will take the STAAR Science in May.
On testing days, please be sure your child is at school, well rested, and pencils ready to do their best. We test reading and math earlier because students must pass these tests in order to move on to the 6th grade. If a child is unsuccessful on either test, they will take a second administration in May.
Passmore is a closed campus on all STAAR days. Parents cannot eat with their children and it is best that students come to school with their lunches or buy their lunch. If you drop items off in the office, it is difficult to get them to the students due to testing.
BEHAVIOR IS CRUCIAL!
PARENTS: Behavior is a factor in earning the skating party. If a student has behavioral issues, this privilege may be taken away.
Look for more details in the Tuesday folder soon.

Natural Bridge Caverns
I am in the process of planning the trip. It is on a first come, first served, sign up, once the paperwork goes home. Bus space is usually limited. I have taken as many as 79 students, but, this year, we will only have one bus.
The tentative date is Saturday, May 7, 2016. Be on the lookout for more information in the Tuesday Folder.

Make Up Work-Absences
When a student is absent, they are responsible for making up all of their missed assignments. Students have an equal number of days to make up work for each day they are absent. For example, if your child misses 2 school days, they have 2 school days to make up their missing assignments. Be sure to check TEAMS for grades to ensure your child is not falling behind.
