  There are important dates to remember :  Tuesday, April 23rd is the  Math STAAR Test and Wednesday, April 23rd is the Reading STAAR test.  Your children are well-prepared; please be sure that they get a good night's sleep!
  
  This week in Math we're reviewing concepts to get ready for the STAAR test.  There will be homework each night this week, but there will be no homework the next week due to the testing.  Also, the last day of Math tutorials will be held on April 15th.

Last week in Social Studies, the GT students presented their famous Texans projects, complete with a typed report, a Power Point, and a doll fashioned to look like their famous person.  The presentations were wonderful and very informative.  Thank you, students!
 
 This year, I've been giving Social Studies homework-Mrs. Saathoff and I alternate weeks so that the students will not have both Science and Social Studies the same week.  Again, please check assignment sheets so that your child is prepared to turn in the homework on the due date.

It is hard to believe that the year is drawing to a close!  It has my been my pleasure to be one of your child's teachers.    Please email me at bbarnes1@g-pisd.org or come by room 14 if I can be of any assistance.
