Dear Shearn Families,
Welcome to another exciting school year. We are looking forward to an exciting and enriching school year for everyone. As you know, we are your child’s greatest fans and we are anxious to begin this year’s journey.
The last five years were rated as a Recognized School by the Texas Education Agency. However, even with these great results of our students the majority of our students are still not reading on grade level.
Last year the following shows what percentage of students were reading on grade level:
First Grade 32%
Second Grade 33%
Fourth Grade 33%
Fifth Grade 20%
Shearn’s goal is to have 100% of our students reading on grade level and we need your support to ensure that we meet this goal. Having your child read 30-60 minutes each night or being read to each day contributes to your child’s reading success. In addition ask your child questions about what they read and having them summarize what they read also ensures success.
We look forward to the partnership we are beginning with you and your family. There are opportunities to serve the children here at school as well as the support you already offer at home. We will share those with you as the year progresses. Please feel free to let us know if you have new ideas.
If there is ever anything you wish to discuss with me, please feel free to contact me at 713-295-5236.
Clifford W. “Bill” Buck
