Things to Know!


Please be sure to send back the forms for the track meet:
  • Participation form- must return to go. 
  • Sack lunch form- optional if they don’t bring a lunch
  • T-shirt form- EVERY student is going to get a shirt for this day and PTA is going to make sure of it.  Parents are allowed to make a donation ($2,$3, or $4) dollars… or however much they want.  It will just help PTA cover some of their cost. 
The Cox Carnival is this Friday. Come join us for some great fun!

The STAAR Writing test is next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has plenty of sleep the night before and has a good breakfast. They are going to rock this test!

Because of the STAAR test, ALL tutoring is cancelled for next week. Please make arrangements for picking up your child.

Math Activity:

We had a great time using our technology today on our scavenger hunt throughout the school. Look at some of the things we found!

Requests and Reminders

Symphony Tomorrow- Proper Dress

We have our field trip to the Plano Symphony Orchestra tomorrow, March 5th. Please be sure to dress nicely and get ready for some wonderful music!

We are still in need of volunteers to decorate the hallway on Thursday, March 6th. Please, please, please consider contributing your time to this activity, as the kids really enjoy the transformation. If you are unable to be here to help, please consider sending one or two of the food items needed to carry out this fun experience. Thank you!

Over the next few weeks we will really be using technology in math class. We are doing a few activities that involve two different apps. One involves a QR Reader and the other involves InstaFrame. If you allow your child to bring technology to use in the classroom, please download a QR Reader app and the InstaFrame app so that they are ready to go. There are numerous free QR Reader apps available and the InstaFrame app is also free. Please let me know if you need help with this. As of right now, we are scheduled to need technology on Friday, March 7th, Tuesday, March 18th, and Monday, March 24th.

I am also in the process of setting up a new computer program for the kids! I will have more information available to you as it is ready.

We have a Science test on Thursday and a Social Studies test on Friday. Study guides went home this week. Please help your child be prepared for the test.

As always, thank you so much for the support!
