Starting this week, the students will also be bringing home a STAAR Revising and Editing Homework practice to help us prepare for the upcoming test.  This gives the parents a chance to see what kind of questions the students will be facing.  We have worked diligently the first semester to learn these skills, and now it is time apply them to our work.  Assignments will go home on Monday of each week and will be due on the Thursday of the same week.  Please help your child and sign and return the paper on time for extra credit points.  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

images-12016!  Can you believe that we are half- way through the school year and on the back side of this year?  Time is moving forward at a rapid pace and May will be here before we know it.  With that being said, I pray that each of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years’ break and are ready to hit the floor running tomorrow.  We have an exciting semester ahead!  

I would also like to thank the parents for the wonderful Christmas party!  The students enjoyed the food, games, and opening their stockings.  What a blessing to me it is to have such giving and caring parents that are always ready to help.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for your help, support, and the many gifts I received.
