On Tuesday, January 3, 2017, we welcome you back to school after what we hope was a wonderful and exciting winter break spent with family and friends.
The second half of the school year will be underway with staff and students once again actively engaged in teaching and learning. We are excited about the educational challenges that lay ahead and we know you will continue to assist us in our efforts to make our school district the best it can possibly be.
One of the educational challenges that we deal with every day is finding sufficient time to address the unique and diverse learning needs of some of our students.
Knowing that some students need a little more time to master essential knowledge and acquire necessary skills, we continue to search for ways to restructure our regular school day to accommodate students who need additional time and assistance to experience academic success.
In order to provide additional learning opportunities, some teachers will be offering after-school tutoring to help students who can’t get enough time during the school day to achieve proficiency in the core content areas of reading, writing and mathematics. Priority will be given to the lowest-performing students who are eligible to participate.
There are several activities coming up that deserve a mention:
January 6, 2017: Students may wear jeans with uniform shirt on the first Friday of the month.
January 16, 2017: No school, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
January 24, 2017: STAAR Parent Night from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Thanks again for your support of our school, students and teachers. It is needed and appreciated.
Ms. Toni Fisher, Campus Director
