a note from PTO

Once again, thank you Wildcat Parents for all your help with our spring fundraiser. The kids did a great job selling chocolate and we raised a good amount for the school. Most of this money will go towards the cost for the flashing lights the school is looking into (to help with the traffic situation at drop off and pick up).

The Dunk show last week was so much fun. Our highest seller won an autographed basketball from the dunk team and we even had 1 lucky student win a GameStop gift card. Congratulations Jesse T. and Jackson L., both 4th graders on this.

Prizes for PTO chocolate fundraiser are still ongoing.

  • DJ party –All students that sold 1 box of chocolate or more get to come to a “DJ Party” during school this Friday. We will have a DJ playing fun music and few games for the students.
  • Silly String a staff member- All students that sold 5 or more boxes of chocolate will get to “silly string” a staff member during our STAAR test Pep Rally this week.

Watch out for pictures of all these events on the PTO Facebook page.

PTO Elections & General Meeting:

PTO elections: Voting for board members for the new school year (2019/2020) will commence this week via electronic vote. PTO members (only if you completed a form and paid family dues), should be on the outlook for an email to vote.

General Meeting: There will be a general PTO meeting, on Wednesday May 15th at 5.30pm in Cafeteria A. We encourage all PTO members to come to the final meeting for the school year. The new PTO board will be introduced at this meeting.

Finally, we want to extend big thank you to ALL parents and students that joined us and donated in one way or another, as we honored our staff and teachers last week.

To all our staff and teachers… YOU ROCK!!!

STAAR Testing - Closed Campus

Just a reminder that next week we will have STAAR testing on our campus. It will be a CLOSED CAMPUS, which means that parents will not be allowed on campus without prior approval. Please make sure that you have not scheduled any doctor's appointments, etc. Also, be aware that there will be no lunch with students for parents, tutorials, or clubs for any students next week.

Please ensure that your student(s) are on time and have had a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast. Testing will begin promptly at 8am. Please make every effort to drop your students off early on testing days so that they are calm and don't feel rushed.

Thank you for helping these students be successful for STAAR!!
