Teacher of the Year 2014

Congrats to 5th grade teacher Ms. Nunez for being named Handley's Teacher of the Year! Ms. Hutchings and Ms. Jackson also deserve a big Paw Power for being nominated this year. 

School Librarian Day

This year School Librarian Day was on April 4th. Miss Garner's 1st graders created cards for our librarian Mrs. Williams and wrote book reviews to share with other students in the school.

Writing is Everywhere

Our 4th grade students participated in a pilot program to help them prepare for their STAAR writing tests. The students used writing skills in their music and library classes by journaling. The students were able to make connections between their special classes and what they were learning in the classroom.

Favorite Books

Each year Handley teachers share their favorite children's books on the website to give students and parents some ideas. Check out the wonderful books on this year's list!

2nd Grade Spotlight

Mrs. Zarraga's 2nd graders read a story about fossils and then wrote stories about finding fossils. The students have been working hard to improve their writing skills for 3rd grade.

STAAR Testing

The campus will be closed to visitors during STAAR testing. This means that there will also be no lunch visitors allowed during testing. The final testing week is from April 21-25 (3rd, 4th, and 5th). Please make sure that if your child is testing they get plenty of sleep, eat a good breakfast, and are on time for the test.

Need a Reminder?  Stay Informed

All GISD schools are using Blackboard Connect - an automated phone calling system, to contact parents with reminders, updates, school news, and also in the event of an emergency.  Please make sure the office has current phone numbers on record for your family so you will receive these messages. Also, check out the Activities page for grade level news.
