We are so proud of your children! They have worked so hard over the last few months preparing for STAAR and have continually exceeded our expectations.
On May 8th, for the math STAAR, we would like you to write a letter or a card of words of encouragement and love for your child. We are asking that these cards/letters be returned to your child’s teacher by May 5th in an envelope with your child's name on the outside. The letters/cards will be placed on your child’s desk for them to open when they come in the classroom on May 8th. This should be a positive way for your child to start their day :) If possible, we would like this to be a surprise.
After testing we are planning some fun activities as a celebration for all of their hard work. On Wednesday, your child can bring items from home to create. For example, coloring, Legos, craft items, loom bracelets, etc. If you aren’t sure about an item, feel free to email your child’s teacher. Thursday will be our game day. We encourage students to bring fun board games from home to share with their friends. On Friday, students will have field day...what a fun end to the week!
Thank you for all of your continued support!

A Message From Ms. Dean
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5, will have an opportunity to show all that they’ve learned this year as they take a variety of STAAR tests.

May 9th, 2017: 3rd, 4th, Reading STAAR, 5th retest

Due to the security of this testing process, all parents (Kinder through 5th grade), will eat lunch with their children on other dates. Volunteers are also asked to reschedule their time.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter. Here at Creekside Forest, we have the most amazing parents who provide their time and care to volunteer and make our school a nurturing environment.
