Principal’s Place March 23, 2015
Welcome back from what I hope was a restful Spring Break. We are entering our busiest time of the year in the last nine weeks as we race toward the end of the 2014-2015 school year.
One of our network servers crashed the week prior to spring break. As a result, we are experiencing some email problems. If you email a teacher and don’t get a reply within a day or so, it could be that the teacher never received it or that the teacher’s reply was lost in cyber space. In situations like this, we will go “old school” and use the telephone. Please call the school office and leave a message for the person you were trying to contact.
Our school is scheduled for a major upgrade on all of our network servers, cabling, and wireless hubs sometime within the next few months. In the meantime, HISD Technology is working on a temporary fix for our server. Please be patient with us.
Next week we begin our state STAAR testing in 4th and 5th grades. Here’s the schedule for all of the STAAR testing in March and April:
Have a dazzling week!
- March 30 – Grade 4, Writing (Day 1)
- March 31 – Grade 4, Writing (Day 2), Grade 5 Reading
- April 20 – Grade 5 Math
- April 21 – Grades 3 & 4 Math
- April 22 – Grades 3 & 4 Reading, Grade 5 Science
