Badger Parents Newsletter

Volume 1, Issue 13

Welcome, Parents!

Thank you so much for taking time to read our Badger Newsletter! We have such wonderful parents and we value your support! I want to sincerely thank each of you for all you did to celebrate our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week this week. They are extremely grateful! Please remember that we are testing Monday - Thursday of next week so our campus will be closed to visitors. We do this to ensure that our students have the best testing environment possible with the least amount of distractions. Please encourage your child to get good rest and a balanced breakfast prior to each test. Do not hesitate to call at 817-237-9631 if we can answer any questions or help you in anyway.

Sincerely,
Mrs. McDonald
