What’s Happening

STAAR Testing Dates: 3/28-3/29 – 4th Grade Writing & 5th Grade Math and Reading

STAAR Testing Dates will mean our campus is closed to all visitors.

Free Breakfast offered to all students on STAAR Days!


The Department of Gifted and Advanced Academic Services knows that you are awaiting your student’s results from our January open testing for TAG services. Due to mechanical issues with scoring, there was a delay with getting results to campuses. Campus Screening and Selection Committees want to ensure they have the time and data to make thoughtful placement decisions, and therefore we will be sending placement notification via mail on April 14th rather than April 1 as originally indicated.

What is PBIS?

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. It places emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors in order to create and maintain a positive school environment. All areas of the school including the classroom and areas common to all students (such as hallways, restrooms, cafeteria, etc.) have expectations appropriate to that area. Attention is focused on keeping those systems of support in place and reminding students of them in order to help improve lifestyle results for all children. School-wide expectations are posted throughout the school.

Adults introduce the desired behavior, model it, and then reinforce the positive social behavior with all students at the school. Teaching behavior expectations and rewarding students with a “Purple Ticket” is a more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur and then responding. The main purpose of PBIS is to provide a framework in which appropriate behaviors are the school norm, thus creating a positive climate for all who belong.
