Round 1 of STAAR IS COMPLETE .........THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!

I don't know where to start, but I will give it a try....

  • Thank you teachers for all of your hard work in preparing our students!
  • Thank you to the ladies who helped prepare for the pep rally, Ms. T. Davis, Ms. Blatnik, and Ms. Carrillo. This included decorating the auditorium, organizing the pep rally lineup and parade, and ensuring the student snack bags were taken care of. Thank you so much for your hard work!
  • Thank you to Ms. Flores, Ms. Louden, and Mr. Longoria who assisted in preparing the student snack bags (all 120 of them)!
  • Thank you to Ms. Euteneier for preparing our cheerleaders for the pep rally, as usual they were amazing!
  • Thank you teachers for participating in the the pep rally with your hilarious skits, and for a wonderful parade full of enthusiasm and encouragement!
  • Last, but certainly not least......thank you Ms. L. Davis and Ms. Ajose for everything you did to ensure we had a smooth STAAR experience! This was your first time as test coordinators, but you both pulled it off quite well! (You both need a good laugh, check out a video online created by teachers at Briscoe Middle School in Texas. If you type in STAAR Hello, it should pop up. I think you will enjoy it, and anyone else who takes a look as well!)

Now for a few photos...
