A Few Words from Principal Cox
I want to give a huge shout out to our Lone Star Challenge team that came in 6thplace out of 12 teams this past weekend at their competition! This would not have been possible without the help from Becky Warner and the other parent volunteers as well as Lisa Silverthorn who acted as the campus representative.
In case you haven’t heard, Lone Star Challenge is the elementary version of the Academic Decathlon. The teams, comprised of 4th, 5th, and 6thgraders, compete in the areas of Math/Science, Language Arts/Social Studies, Essay and Super Quiz. In January, individuals try out for the team and then the team practices multiple times a week in order to prepare for the big competition in May. If this sounds like something your child might be interested in, please be on the lookout for information coming next school year or contact Lisa Silverthorn.
And one last reminder that STAAR testing is next week! Please make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and brings a snack and a jacket. In most cases, testing will begin at 8:30 and finish at 12:30. Students will eat lunch after the testing is complete. We ask for no visitors during testing days so we can maintain a very structured environment. We anticipate results in June, and once we get them, we will pass them along to parents. Students have worked so hard all year, I know they are ready and prepared. It is my wish that this brings about the least amount of stress possible for your family!
