We have STAAR State Assessments for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students this week (see calendar below); therefore, our campus will be CLOSED to visitors to provide a safe, secure, and quiet learning environment for our students. We took a moment to celebrate all of their hard work and help relax them this past Friday with a short pep rally. We are very proud of them and want them to all know, they are ready for this moment. This is one moment for them to show all that they have learned this far and to go into the next few weeks of school gaining more knowledge. I use the example of sports! Just like in a big game or competition, we tell them to do their best showing all their skills. This isn’t any different for them. We want them to do their best and move forward with all the other skills we are prepared to teach them.
We ask that you help us remind them to be proactive by getting plenty of sleep, eating a good breakfast, and sharpening their saw as always!
Our staff put together a fun, light-hearted video for our students. We shared this with them at the pep rally. You can view it at https://youtu.be/Ss5wBYmWdUU .
