End of the Year Slideshow 2016-2017

Parents,
It was a pleasure seeing so many of you at the assembly this morning. As I mentioned in the assembly, our end of the year slideshow will be on youtube. That way you can share it with friends and family and no discs will get lost.

Thanks again for a great year! Enjoy your summer!

Lobue’s Homeroom is Having a Picnic in the Park TOMORROW!

Picnic in the Park (ONLY FOR LOBUE’S HOMEROOM)

Mrs. Lobue’s class will be heading to Penick Park tomorrow (5/17) for winning the Box Tops Contest.

Please bring a sack lunch (unless you indicated on your permission slip that you wanted one from the cafeteria). We will enjoy lunch together and then play (students may bring footballs, frisbees, etc).

I’d suggest a hat, sunscreen, and a bottle of water. We will be there for about hour.

It should be a fun time!

Shhhhh, Students Are Testing

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, will be given this week. On Monday, May 8th, a few of our 5th graders will take the STAAR Math Retest. On Tuesday, May 9th, a few of our 5th graders will take the STAAR Reading Retest. On Wednesday, May 10, our entire 5th grade will complete the STAAR Science assessment.

We encourage our students to:

  • Go to bed early.
  • Be on time for school.
  • Plan to bring your lunch from home that morning or purchase your lunch from the cafeteria on these two testing days. Food brought in for lunch will not be allowed for any grade level on testing days. VISITORS for lunch will not be permitted on campus on May 8th, 9th, and 10th.
  • Students may bring one, sealed bottle of room-temperature water. NO other drink will be allowed.

We are proud of our students and know that they are ready to show what they can do. Let’s stand behind them and show our support by making sure these tips are followed by all.
