Health Challenge from Mr. Strutton!

Who's up for a May Health Challenge? Here's how it will work- you will need to give up a food/drink and add a healthy food/drink/exercise every day until the end of May! Think you can do it? Stop by or email Mr. Strutton the drink/food you plan to give up. Good luck!

Message from Ms. Rodriguez

Monday, May 2nd QVE GT Showcase at 1:45 -2:45 in the Writing Lab – all are welcome to come!


Tuesday May 3rd District GT Showcase 6:30-7:30 (Ms. Bathe and I will attend.) Wednesday, May 4th Houston Texans’ mascot, TORO will visit our prek-2nd graders at 2:00 in the cafeteria for more anti-bullying talk!


I will be in the library during enrichment times for lessons – kinder-2nd grade will be a surprise habit lesson! 3rd will have STAAR test taking strategies – what to do the night before, and 4th grade will also have a surprise habit lesson and 5th grade will have a transition to 6th grade lesson. I am excited and looking forward to being back in the library!


Ms. Harper’s 5th grade class will be on announcements as well!

Message from Ms. Jones

Good afternoon, QVE!

As you know, we have STAAR testing the week of May 9th. I have modified the enrichment schedule so that each grade level will have a planning period on each day.


Please review the schedule that was emailed to you last week so that you are aware when your grade level will have enrichment.

The lunch schedules have been modified in the afternoon as well to allow the maximum testing time for each grade level without interruptions.

Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks.
