The district will continue benchmark testing in Math after the Christmas break in hopes to improve student scores on the fast approaching TAKS testing. Students who don’t pass the benchmark tests will be assigned mandatory after-school TAKS tutoring until they can pass the TAKS tutoring benchmark. Come visit with your child’s teachers and get involved in your child’s education.

Congratulations to Jordan Gossett for winning a new bicycle in the bike safety poster contest sponsored by Central Texas Telephone.
Jordan was presented a new bicycle by CTC representative Claudia Morrow this past Monday. I wish you could have seen the smile on Jordan’s face when she saw her new bike.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
