Principal’s Message
     I hope you received my letter with the benchmark results. Many of our students did very well. If you have concerns about your child's results, please call to set up a meeting for us to discuss these results.
     When we return from spring break 7th and 8th graders will have 11 days before they take the first round of STAAR tests. I am confident our staff is doing their part to ensure student success. Please help us!
     Spend some time talking to your child about their effort in school. As spring approaches, (or should I say IF spring ever gets here!) students typically become antsy and less focused. Now is not the time to quit. We need everyone to push through until the end of the year.
     In preparation of the upcoming state assessments, please be sure your child:
  • Gets plenty of rest the night before
  • Eats a good breakfast
  • Dresses comfortable for testing
     Don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions.
