From the Principal

As we move further into the second semester of the 19-20 school year, take some time to talk with your child regarding their academic progress for this year. What is going well for him/her? What could use some improving? Set some short term goals to finish this school year in a strong way. These are important tips as we move into the testing season of the school year--from benchmark testing to STAAR testing, setting goals is an important way to stay focused!

Thank you for partnering with us this school year!

SELF-AWARE

When you are ready for life, you have a clear perception of your personality. You know what your strengths are as well as your weaknesses. You understand your own thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. You take the time to express how you feel, reflect on thing you could improve on, and ask for feedback from others. By doing these things, you are using the leader attribute, Self- Aware.

This weeks I will statement “I will be aware of myself by knowing my strengths and weaknesses.”
