Congrats to Commended Students on PSAT

Kimber Hageman, Batul Mabruk & Ammaar Siddiqui have been named as Commended Students in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program.  Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of the more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2021 competition by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

Virtual Spanish Club

The Spanish Club will meet virtually every Wednesday, from 4:15 to 4:45 P.M. We play games, listen to music, and have cooking demonstrations! All are welcome to join no matter your level of Spanish! Speaking Spanish is not required; you just need to have a love for the Spanish language! Please contact Mrs. van Steijn for the Zoom link and Google Classroom code.

The Plan Moving Forward

Our initial four-week stint of virtual instruction will end on Thursday, September 17th. Our Governing Board approved and we submitted a TEA waiver for a second four-week period to run from September 18th-October 16th. A pivotal piece of TEA’s requirement for the second four-week virtual platform is that “some on-campus instruction must be provided each day” during the extended period.

Student Support

Eve Margolis, our ELL Parent Liaison/Student Support will be on hand remotely and in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Her primary function is to provide support for any CSA student in need.

Virtual Meet Staff

Our annual “Meet Staff” event will go virtual this year. Within the next few days parents will receive staff-made videos that cover everything from daily routine to homework requirements. If any questions or concerns arise following the presentations, please email the teacher for details.
