Panther Parents and Students,

We just completed Spring STAAR testing and week one of AP testing. BY the end of testing next week we will have completed two weeks of testing over 2,300 tests will be turned in. Next we will have finals and the last day of the school year is just around the corner. With this in mind, I am writing to ask for your help. We understand everyone has many demands placed upon them, but attendance and class work must be our first PRIORITY! Many students are missing classes, which will cause them to owe hours and puts them at risk for losing credit. Many students received NGs (no grade given due to poor attendance) and need to make up hours to get credit. Students- have you met with your assistant principal? Do you know what you have to do? Knowledge is power and YOU need to take charge if you want to succeed. Not only here, but in EVERYTHING you do. We have Saturday school EVERY Saturday 8:00am-12:00pm- be here!

Many students are not giving 100% to their studies and report cards and recent progress reports show this. Just because summer is around the corner there is no reason to slow down or SLACK. Your grades will open doors to many opportunities, your grades or LACK of them can also hold you back. When it comes to grades be careful, ask for help, attend tutorials and put forth effort because the one who benefits most is YOU.

STAAR testing is over but AP testing has one more week. We will continue to test on line, so we need every student to bring their laptop every day.
