Know our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

First off – thank you Steve and Lesli for organizing the STAAR materials, having everything ready, and getting everything gathered back up and ready to go!  You both did a supreme job and I appreciate your hard work!  Thank you!

Next, shout out to all faculty and staff for the great work during the STAAR testing!  Everything was so smooth, no major incidents, and that is because of YOU!  I can’t thank you enough – monitoring tests is exhausting and I appreciate everyone’s job in making our testing environment quiet and conducive to hard work!  Thank you to all!  Thanks to the parents and the PTA for the delicious lunches and thanks to YES for the breakfast tacos!  The diet must now begin!!  You all more than rise to each occasion – Wow!  Thank you!

The next big push is our 8th grade intervention time!  We have two weeks to get 67 8th graders to pass the math STAAR and 123 8th graders to pass the reading STAAR.  All of the intervention will be done during the regular class time!  Over 1/2 of all of those students missed passing by less than 5 questions!  We can get those students passing!  Thanks to Lesli for pulling the intervention together!  We are climbing the mountain!!

These remaining weeks of school are going to be super busy!  The schedule is just about full up!  This week is not too bad –
