Willis, TX, Feb 10, 2016 –Students watch her intently, striving to follow her every move and direction. They excitedly approach each new task and work to achieve perfection. They sing, they play instruments; they clap, tap and snap to the beat under her watchful eye. In addition to teaching these artistic skills, she guides her students through lessons on the planets or parts of speech with a musical twist.
February 10, 2016 ~ This week in PE students have been working on jump roping skills. Students will be participating in our annual Jump Rope for Heart on Friday, February 12th. Students can bring in a donation of $5 and will receive a plastic dog with a lanyard and put their name on a JRFH sticker that will hang in the main hallway by the coaches offices. We welcome all students who want to collect donations to ask for a JRFH envelop from Coach Brown and Jonika. All donations need to be turned in by March 4th.
February 1, 2016 ~ Tomorrow begins benchmark testing for students in 4th and 5th grades. Students will be taking practice tests in order for teachers to determine how best to prepare them for the rest of the school year and for the STAAR test. On those days, the campus will be closed to visitors for all grades, including to lunch. Items may still be dropped off in the front office to be given to students.
Please help students be as prepared as possible for the benchmark assessments by encouraging them to get a great night's rest, eating a nutritious breakfast, and trying their hardest. Breakfast at school will be served as usual. A reminder that students must arrive by 8:20 am to receive a school breakfast.
