The time has come for students to take the English 1 EOC (STAAR test). Tuesday is game day. We have worked so hard this year, and I know, with effort, each and every one of you will soar.
Rest up, eat a nice breakfast, and come to school ready to put this test behind you and soar on forwards (towards summer)!

STAAR Blitz - Week 2!

This week is the last week of our STAAR Blitz, which is an intensive review of our low T.E.K.S. from the last benchmark. The English 1 EOC is Tuesday, March 28th, so it is quickly approaching. Students have been keeping up with a Blitz folder with all relevant assignments and notes; this folder needs to be in class each day. It will be taken up on Friday as the first major grade of the new 9 weeks. Students are responsible for having all parts of the folder complete, even if they were absent. If a student is missing anything, he/she needs to come to after school tutorials and/or WildKat lunch this week.
There is NO Commonlit during Blitz.
