Goals and Expectations: We expect every third grader to be a hard worker and try their best at everything we do. STAAR preparation is a crucial piece in our curriculum therefore it’s pertinent that our students focus daily in order to perform at a level of excellence on STAAR.
We strive to build a solid foundation for each student to take with them to the next grade level.
