The Dream Team

News From Traci's Office

Benchmarks are over! Thank you for working so hard to get all of your students tested. Remember to have all data turned into Wendy this Friday.



We will be starting after school tutoring in February. Begin thinking now about who you will want to tutor. Grades k-2 need to have a list of 2-5 students for your group. Grades 3-5 STAAR teachers will need to give me a list of the 10 students you want to keep after school. I will need the list by January 23rd. I am going to place a paper in your box for you to turn in stating which day you would like to stay. Please get that to me ASAP.


I will be off campus next Tuesday the 20th for a STAAR training workshop. I have a couple of questions that I am going to ask so I can be clear on guidelines. If you have a question you want me to ask, get it to me before I go. I am also going to the assessment conference in February and hope to learn even more.


On Fridays, we will be pulling the students that are taking the STAAR Acc. tests to complete a tutorial online. We want them to learn how to use the program and have practice with it before the day of the test. Mrs. Coyne will be pulling the kids and Mrs. Tissy will be helping out in the lab.


Thank you again for working so hard for your students. Let's make this six weeks the best yet.
