It is hard to believe that February is already here! We are more than halfway through the school year and we continue our focus on improving student achievement. Here at United Middle, we have been working hard to help our students make the best decisions about learning and positive behavior.
We hosted a “STAAR Make & Take Night” at the end of January and before STAAR Testing begins. These hands on sessions gave you the opportunity to collaborate with your child in preparing STAAR related study materials that will be beneficial in helping your children study at home. Successful schools build and maintain strong connections between home and school. This is one thing that we are proud of and will continue to work towards improving. Please continue to ask your children about tests, homework, and peer relationships. Always encourage your child and expect the very best!
Our STAAR “Excellence Workshops” are in full force as the STAAR exam approaches. This program takes place Monday-Thursday as well as designated “Maverick University” sessions held on designated Fridays and Saturdays. The instruction that students are receiving at these sessions are prescriptive and designed to meet our students’ individual needs to help them “Climb New Heights To Masters Performance!”. It is extremely important that your child take advantage of these opportunities. If you are unsure about whether or not your child is required to attend, please call your child’s teachers or our Academic Coordinator, Mrs. R. Villagomez at 473-7339.
We have had a very successful first semester with your help and will continue working with our students to achieve high levels of success!
Your Proud Principal,
Mrs. R. Morales
