Can you believe we only have 12 weeks of school left? This year is going by so quickly, and I am very proud of our students and all they have accomplished thus far. On March 30-31 our 7th graders will be taking STAAR Writing, and our 8th graders will be taking STAAR Reading on March 31st. Please do not schedule doctor or dentist appointments on these days. As a reminder, 8th grade is an SSI year, and our 8th grade students need to pass the reading exam in order to be promoted to 9th grade. Please insure that your child rests and has a healthy breakfast on test days. Our students are currently in “STAAR Boot camp,” and I am confident they are going to be successful on these high stakes tests.
I also want to remind parents to check the school dress code. As the days get warmer, our students want to wear hats, shorts, and tank tops. Please remember that hats are not allowed to be worn inside the building, shorts must be finger-tip length, and shirts must cover the shoulders and midriff. Please help us keep our students focused on learning.
March 16-20 is spring break! Please enjoy your time with family and friends.
Stay Ranger Strong!
