Announcements April 26

 This week wrapped up to be a great week.  STAAR went very well, and our kids worked extremely hard.  We should expect to see their results in late May.  We had our CHAMPs assemblies to recognize our students and classes for their hard work in attendance, behavior and learning.  We had patriotic musical performances and listened to students read their exemplary writing.  This week was a great week.

On Wednesday and Friday, we had a presentation from the Southwest Dairy Farmers association where students learned where milk comes from and why it is an important source of nutrition.  Students learned about the cow and how milk is taken from a cow and then processed all the way to the grocery store.  Below are some pictures of the events.  For more information on this organization, go to

May is here and lots of events are about to begin.  We are having our last fservice project / fundraiser of the year for the American Cancer Society.  The students will raise funds to have their favorite coach dress up as a superhero.  Each coach that raises $500 will dress up for the kids on May 9.  If the campus raises $4000, Mr. Wink will dress as his favorite superhero as well.  If you would like to donate to our race for a cure, please send cash, coins or checks made out to the American Cancer Society.  We appreciate your support.
