A big kudos to Wendy, Cherri, Kino, and others who are wrangling in the kids during tardy sweep. That is not an easy job.

A big thank you to Heather and Leo for helping out 8th grade ELA during our Rising Star Initiative to help out all of our 8th grade students.

Kudos to Maggie, Caitlin La, Mrs. Barnhart, and Jeremy for working hard and being so organized on these STAAR mock days and getting us prepared for the real thing.

Kudos to Kristen Morgan and Casey Gembicki for going above and beyond this six weeks for R.S.I. and working as a team to help all of 8th grade.

A HUGE kudo to the one who manages my area, Evelyn Cubias!! Thank you so much for always being so understanding and fair. For always being so thoughtful and special with us AND for being very considerate with us when we've had bad moments. She's always thinking of pick me ups for the team and appreciation surprises. For always listening and letting us vent. For always standing up for us, and setting us straight when we do deserve it. THANK YOU EVELYN!

- Marbel Donosso


I would like to put a drop in Ms. Terry, Mr. Shuck, Mrs. Cole, Mr. Bergeron and Mrs. La's buckets. This week I had the pleasure of seeing their scales, assessments, activities and student tracker. They are doing a stellar job preparing our 8th graders for the upcoming STAAR exam.

- Mario Acosta


I would like to put a drop in the bucket for:

My athletic staff. Thank you for being team players, loyal and committed. Maintaining the "in it to win it" philosophy day in and day out with our kids. You are valued and appreciated.

Teachers. Thank you for the job you do with our kids everyday. You're making a positive difference daily in the future of our kids, more than you know.
