School Success Initiative 

The School Success Initiative requires that 5th grade students have to pass STAAR mathematics and reading before being promoted to the next grade level.  This has been waived for the 2020-2021 school year. Students will take the STAAR test one time in May 2021. Retest opportunities will not be provided. The school district will have local discretion on whether students who do not pass STAAR should advance to the next grade. 

Communication with teachers

Communication between parents and teachers is crucial and critical for school success. We encourage parents to contact their child's teacher at any time. Parents can use email. Use the information in the STAFF tab to locate your child's teacher's email address. Please allow 24 hours for an email response. 

Parents can also call teachers. Parents can call during the school day. Messages will be left with teachers as to not interrupt instruction. Teachers are more accessible via phone during their conference period. 

Fifth grade  conference period is from 11:35 a.m. until 12:25 p.m.

Shoes for P.E.

We encourage students to wear tennis shoes for their PE days. The gym floors can be slick, and safety is important to us.
