STAAR is around the corner, and we are all working together as a team to encourage our
students because we know that they are all stars! On March 28th and March 29th, we will have our first round of STAAR testing for this school year. On Tuesday, March 28th, our fourth graders will be taking STAAR Writing, and our fifth graders will be taking STAAR Math. The following day, March 29th, our fifth graders will be taking the STAAR Reading.
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.
Just a few test-taking tips:
Parents and students, you have been working diligently all year and will continue to persevere and excel! On January 17th, Band, Orchestra, Choir, and Art will perform for you at 12:50! They will have brochures for you to take home to consider which elective you would like to take. Also, Creekside Park Junior High will have the opportunity for parents to attend an information night beginning at 6 PM on January 18th. You will receive a course selection form to take home, selecting your courses with your families. February 1st, Ms. Garrett, the counselor from the Junior High will be here to help you select your courses for next year. You are invited to come to school on February 1st starting at 7:30 in both computer labs. Good luck for your new exciting adventure! - Ms. Dean, Counselor
