In February, we will be starting the extended day to help prepare our students for the upcoming TAKS in March. I know the month of February can be busy with basketball, stock shows, and many other activities but attendance is very important for the students who are scheduled for extended day. The third grade Reading and the fourth grade Writing will be on Tuesday, March 3rd. Students have to pass the third grade Reading TAKS to be promoted to the 4th grade.
The PTO Basketball Tournament will be on February 26 - 28. To help prepare the kids for the tournament, we will have two days of scrimmages. The first date will be Saturday, February 7 and Saturday, February 21. A big thank you to all of the volunteers like the PTO, coaches, parents, referees, and the helpers in the concession stand.
Basketball season is winding down and the students in PIP'S have four performances left. The students involved in PIP'S have done an excellent job in representing our community. They have performed during the Harlem Globetrotters' game, West Texas A&M game, Frank Phillips game, and of course during our home varsity games. The students have made great progress in their basketball skills and building confidence since the beginning of the year.
Our last class party will be to celebrate Valentine's Day on Friday, February 13 at 2 p.m. The parties will last until the end of school. We have already celebrated a Fall Party and a Christmas Party.
A reminder that we will not have school on Monday, February 16 which is Presidents' Day.
