Our fourth-grade students have been learning about two types of writing they will be expected to address this year on the STAAR test. We have been learning how to look at prompts and decide whether to write a Narrative or an Expository paper. Each student is bringing home their red carpet this week to share it with you. Please ask your child about the two types and sign their red carpet as a way to know the child is studying each night.

We are nearing the half-way point of the first nine weeks grading period. Normally, teachers would be sending home student progress reports around the 4th or 5th week of a grading period. However, teachers have been working diligently to teach routines and enjoying getting to know your child. No progress reports will be printed out and sent home for this first grading period. You may expect them to be sent beginning at the half-way point of the second nine weeks grading period.
