The week of STAAR testing is always a little stressful.  Schedules have to be changed and lessons need to be quiet, which causes everyone to be a little more irritable.  But the 4th and 5th graders did a great job staying focused and all the other students did a great job trying to stay quiet.  Things will go back to normal for two weeks, then we do it all over again.

Thursday, Clint Small and O'Henry Middle Schools were here helping student select instruments for next year.  It was fun watching students "try-out" with the different pieces.  I think it is great they do this.  Who knew you had to have the right kind of mouth to play certain instruments?

If you don't have any plans for Saturday morning, there is a workday here at starting from 8-1.  We need strong arms and expertise to complete our classroom garden area, build new areas, and edge the circle drive. This is a great opportunity to improve our school grounds while building friendships. See you on the back patio!
