STUCO (Student Council) will be sponsoring their annual Denton Animal Shelter fundraiser starting Wednesday, April 27-May 6th.

STUCO members will be in the cafeteria and in the front foyer every morning from 7:20-7:45 selling PAWS for 25 cents each. Students will then take the PAW and turn it into their teacher.

The class that has the most PAWS will win a popcorn party. Last year Nelson raised $700! We would love to beat that this year!!

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - STAAR Testing

Our 3rd-5th grade students will be testing on Monday - Wednesday next week. If you are a parent volunteer, please remember that you will not be able to go into the classrooms on this day. Tuesday folders will be handled in the teacher workroom.
