Message from Mrs. Chavira, Campus Principal

Rattler Community,

This week we celebrate all of our educators on campus during Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers have faced many challenges in 20-21 but they have learned together, taught with new methods and ignited the love of learning to our students. The world of education has changed as we knew it and our teachers have evolved with our profession with passion, dedication and grace. I am proud of our campus educators. Please make sure you take a moment to thank your child's teacher and every educator on campus.

As always, we are here and ready to serve our community. Please reach out to our campus if you have any questions or need any information. Thank you for your continued trust in Dr. Sue A. Shook Elementary and Socorro ISD. Stay safe.


Cristina Sanchez-Chavira

Proud Principal of Dr. Sue A. Shook Elementary

Important message for students in 3rd , 4th and 5th grade taking STAAR

If your child will be on campus taking the STAAR test, we would like to make sure we are looking over your child's device before they arrive on campus next Tuesday. While on campus, devices receive automatic updates. If a student has not logged into the district server since they received the device, they may not have the required update that will be needed for them to take the STAAR test. For this reason we will be available two days this week from 4:00-5:00pm to check on students devices prior to their STAAR test. Please fill out the form below to select your day. We will be outside the main door area providing technology support. Thank you in advanced for your support.

Dual Language Family Night

We will be having our Spring Dual Language Parent meeting on Thursday, May 13th. This will be a family fun night with games and activities. We will also be sharing information for the 21-22 school year. We will be sending a message to parents to schedule a time when you can pick-up your activity packet for the night. Please RSVP below

Taking care of my device

It is important that we teach our Rattlers how to properly take care of their devices and chargers. We are asking for your help this week as we will be reviewing device care all week during morning announcements. We will be covering the following five areas this week.

1. No eating or drinking around your device

2. Carry your device with two hands

3. Be gentle with the keys or case. Be careful not to break them.

4. Take care of your charger

5. Keep your device and charger away from pets.

As a reminder, we are now a one-to-one campus which means students will continue to use these devices in the upcoming years. Take care of your device. You will need it next year.


If you would like to request a workorder for your device, please submit your request using the link below. You will receive a call back letting you know your request has been received and will be processed.

Please continue to call the campus for basic log-in, application or website support.

Submit Laptop or Tablet workorders

Only use this link for workorders. For log in questions, please continue to call the campus at 937-7100.

Schoology on Campus

You may have noticed these last few weeks students have started to log into a new Learning managment system Schoology. Attached you will find a district letter providing information. Please reach out to the campus or your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Attendance Information

We will continue to send our attendance letters, emails, and phone calls to address any unexcused absences.

How do we report our Absence?

Email any notes to attendancesueshook@sisd.net .

All notes should include the following:

  • The date the student was absent
  • Student's full name
  • Student ID number
  • Grade Level and Teacher's name
  • Reason for the absence
  • *If they have a doctor’s note, it must be included in the email as an attachment.

Warning Letters for Attendance.

Warning letters will continue to go out to all students that have accumulated 5+ unexcused absences. Our goal continues to be to work with our families and ensure we are following the 90% attendance rule. This year students can still lose credit if they accumulate 9 absences per semester and/or 18 absences in a full year.
