Here We Go Again!

Well it's that time again.  Another round of STAAR testing.  Even though we all know STAAR doesn't show the complete picture of what we do as a campus, it still is a time of stress for students (and teachers).  Let's work together this week to find ways to celebrate every ounce of growth in our students and really remind them that they can rock this test!

As we enter the final 3 weeks of school, let's also focus on keeping high expectations and constant forgiveness.

The biggest thing we see in the office at this time of year, are students who are sent up for every insignificant reasons.  We totally understand everyone is exhausted!  But let's give it our all until the final minutes! We can do this!

In Closing...

When finishing out the year, it's important to take care of YOU as well.  Take time to get away, read a book, garden, exercise.  Take care of your mental health.
