Announcements November 2

October is over and November is here.  In 3 weeks, we will be getting ready for Thanksgiving break.  Red Ribbon Week was fantastic.  We had an outstanding response from our kids, and we enjoyed seeing the kids dress up for each theme day.  The student essays about being drug free were awesome.  Thank you to our counselors, Melanie Hudson and Stacy Winkler, for their hard work to make Red Ribbon Week a success.

Our PK and K students' benchmarks were completed before Yamboree, and we are seeing very high levels of performance in every class. Our student data came back on our 1st benchmarks in 1st -4th grade this week, and they were outstanding. Our students were able to show their knowledge at high levels, and we are confident that our 3rd and 4th graders are on pace to make history when they get to the STAAR test in the spring.  If you have questions about your child's performance, please contact your child's teacher.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - We have made a change for visitors eating lunch with students.  Please click this link to view our new Visitor Procedures for Lunch.

  • Bring Your Parent to School will be for 1st and 4th grades from 7:30 - 8:45 a.m.  Join your child for a free breakfast in the cafeteria and in the learning that they are doing.  It is a great way to learn how we are teaching your child.
