Message from Principal Jackson
Dear Panther Parents, Thank you to everyone who participated in Teacher/Staff Appreciation this week. The lunch our PTO provided was fabulously yummy!! We have also received many generous notes, emails, and even some yummy snacks!! We love our Panther Community!!
Two more weeks to go!! Let’s finish strong and continue partnering until we reach the finish line. We GOT THIS!!
STAAR testing will be in full swing next week. The schedule is as such:
Tuesday: 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will be taking the MATH STAAR or Algebra EOC on campus. We will continue to keep virtual students separated from face-to-face students, so please have your child enter through the LIBRARY if they are a virtual student.
Wednesday: 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will take the READING STAAR.
The Math tests will be online from campus so PLEASE make sure your child brings their charged laptop.
Reading is on paper for most, but we would still like students to bring their laptop that day as well.
It is important that our students have a nutritious breakfast on testing days. Also, please have your child to school on time, as that makes for a better start which leads to better results for our students. Students need to bring a water bottle and they can bring their own non-messy snack, but we will provide each student a snack as well. Students will be eating lunch in their testing site. They can either bring their own lunch with them when they come to school, or one will be provided for them. NO FOOD DELIVERIES ARE ALLOWED ON TESTING DAYS. If food is brought for a student, they will not receive it until after all testing is complete (after 2:30). Thank you for your help with this.
If you know you are not returning to an MISD campus next year, please make sure your child turns in their laptop and charger before dismissing for summer. If this property is not returned, it will be filed as stolen property. For students staying within MISD, you will KEEP your laptop during the summer. Please take good care of it as this is the laptop that you will keep for 5 years. Don’t forget, there is a yearly $30 fee but that is not due until the beginning of next year.
The 8th grade Celebration is quickly approaching. I sent a separate email to only 8th grade parents earlier in the week. I will send another one next week with some reminders, but I wanted to give you a FINAL NOTICE FOR T-SHIRT purchases. The online purchasing ends THIS SUNDAY (I believe I misspoke and told you Tuesday so please note the correction). Click on this link to purchase the Class of 2025 t-shirt. Can’t wait to have some fun with this great group of students!!
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!
