A Message from your Principal
Welcome to May 2021!
Please remember that it is not too late. Every student is welcome to return to inperson instruction. Just come to school and we will get your student started.
Dr. Woods has shared that for the 2021-22 school year we are planning for the majority of students to be in person. Plese log in to the Home Access Center (directions below) to update your data verification for your student. Criteria and more information about virtual learning and the plans for next year can be found at https://www.nisd.net/schools/reunited.
We have a busy month ahead and I am going to share the calendar with you so you can plan ahead.
STAAR and End of Course State testing begins. All testing is only in person and starts at 8:40 am. Please get plenty of rest, come early for breakfast, this will help us know where students' success and needs are as we plan for the 2021-2022 school year:

The week of May 3-7th is Educator Appreciation Week! I know you join me in thanking everyone at Zachry who has supported the education and social emotional needs of our students in this very unusual year. I am proud to work with an amazing group of dedicated educators! Please take a moment to email your students' teachers! The words of appreciation mean so much and probably this year more than any other.
We are proud to announce our Zachry Educator of the Year is Ms. Leslie Ortiz! Ms. Ortiz is our fabulous Dance Director. She also creates the Wolverine Video message included in the Wolverine Wire weekly!
Our Zachry First Year Educator of the Year is Mr. Chris Paez! Mr. Paez is an amazing 8th grade science teacher and has built relationships with his students while building the students' science skills in prepartaion for the Science STAAR and High School success.

Students in High School Credit courses must have 90% attendance to receive credit according to Texas Law. This means for a semester class no more than 9 absences and for a year long course no more than 18 absences. We do not want to see a student with a passing grade not get credit due to absences. We offer attendance retrieval every morning, after school on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays as well as every Saturday in May from 9am-1pm (online at the following zoom link : Zoom Link .
Students who are not passing two or more core content classes - Math, Science, Social Studies or English Language Arts - will be notified that they will need to attend Summer School (in person) to move to the next grade. We are here to work with your student so they can have their summer break. Please contact us and respond to our attempts to reachout to you.
