The Rattan Report
May 24, 2016
From the Desks of Mr. Frazier & Mrs. Reddell
Summer is almost here! This year has flown by so fast, and this final week will go by even faster. May has been an action-packed month, so I know that staff and students alike are ready and looking forward to a bit of a break.
PTA Adventure Dash Fun Run Fundraiser
The Adventure Dash Fun Run was a success! PTA received over $8,000 in money raised, much of which will go towards putting additional Chromebooks into classrooms for students. To all those that gave, we want to say THANK YOU for supporting our PTA and our Rattan Pups!
The final round of STAAR came and went, and we are so PROUD of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students for the effort they put into testing that week. Students and teachers have worked hard leading up to this week, and I know their efforts will pay dividends! We also want to thank our 1st and 2nd grade students and staff for supporting our upper grade levels by being flexible with their schedules & keeping things quiet around the building during testing. I know it can be tough on the littler ones, but they did a fantastic job! Big thanks to our parents, too, for their support and flexibility during this testing week.
Our students have gone on some amazing field trips this May! 3rd grade visited the Collin County Raptor Center, 2nd Grade went to Sharkarosa, and 5th grade took in a Roughriders game in Frisco! 4th grade will be headed to their big annual field trip to Austin on Thursday.
Coats and Winter Clothing
Our Lost & Found has been spread out on the gym, so if your child is missing a sweatshirt, winter coat, or other article of clothing, be sure to tell them to check the stage in the cafetorium! Any unclaimed clothing will be donated to charity at the end of the year.
