From the Principal:

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Please be sure to see the flyer in your child's Thursday Exchange papers. We are excited to have a week to celebrate our wonderful teachers and all the hard work they do on our campus each and every day. Please take some time next week to show your child's teacher how much you appreciate him/her.

We are getting close to our 2nd round of testing for STAAR. This will occur the week of May 8-12. Please look for more communication next week on our campus and student instructions.

Thanks for making our campus the best at Life School! Have a great weekend!
