Woohoo!!! We did it! STAAR testing is done!!! We will get results back during the summer. Your student reports will be mailed to you!

Here's what's coming up.....

Fourth grade is going to Austin!

Parents of 4th graders,

Please make sure you review ALL of the information provided for this trip. There are lots of little details that will help ensure that your child has an enjoyable and comfortable trip! It will be a LONG day, but totally worth it! If you have any unanswered questions, please contact your child's teacher.

Field Day

Field Day will look a bit different this year! It will be run similar to the way Splash Day has in the past. Our amazing PTA volunteer is an experienced PE teacher and has GREAT plans for how our Wolves can enjoy this day even more than usual! Flyers should have come home with more detail this week. Just know it will be even more fun & provide more opportunities!

Reminders.....

Lunch Reminder

Parents,

Please note that no one is allowed down the hallways after 7:30 a.m. and before 2:30 p.m. unless they have arrangements or an appointment with their child's teacher. Parents who join students for lunch should remain in the cafeteria areas. Thank you!

Tardies

Remember school begins at 7:30 am. Students should be their desks ready to work at 7:30. We have traditionally given 1 minute of grace. Tardy slips begin promptly after that point. Make sure your students arrive before 7:30 to avoid attendance issues.Thank you s

Calling all parents!


We'd like to develop a parent survey group to help us keep our "parent lens" on while reflecting on our year and thinking about the 16-17 school year!


Does this sound like something you'd be interested in? Great! Please fill out the form below. We'll select between 10-15 people to help us understand parent perspectives on certain topics. This will be a once to twice a month commitment ...with possible field trips!!
