Message from Principal Jackson
Before we know it, the STAAR test will be here. Please keep in mind the following dates when trying to schedule appointments and other events that might take your child off campus. It is always ideal for our students to be able to take the STAAR on the designated dates instead of having to take make-ups later in the week.
May 8th - Math STAAR (6th and 7th grade with 8th grade re-takes)
May 9th - Reading STAAR (6th and 7th grade with 8th grade re-takes)
May 10th - Science STAAR (8th grade only)
May 11th - History STAAR (8th grade only)Please keep in mind that visitors are not permitted in the building on those
days. Thank you so much for your cooperation!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 3 day weekend.
Proud to be a Panther!
