Dear Parents,


As we near the end of the year, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your unwavering support, especially during the recent ELA STAAR test.

Your encouragement and support for both your children and our teachers during this critical time have been truly appreciated. Your support plays a significant role in helping our students succeed, and for that, we are grateful.

With the end of the year in sight, we're gearing up for various activities and events. Please keep an eye out for communications regarding report cards, graduation ceremonies, and any other end-of-year happenings.

As we continue to move forward, please know that we are here to support you and your child every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns about anything related to your child's education, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you once again for your continued support and dedication to your child's success. Together, we can celebrate their achievements and prepare for a successful end to the school year.


Warm regards,

Sierra Stridiron
