STAAR Letter for Parents!

April 02, 2019


April 2, 2019

Greetings STAAR Parents,

This school years has flown by and it is time for STAAR Testing.  Your child has worked really hard all year and now the state has a test that they have prepared for the students to take to see how well they can perform on this test on this special day.  No matter the final score please remember that your child, our student is a STAR.

  • Tuesday, April 9th the 4th and 7th grade will take a Writing Test, 5th and 8th grade will take a Math Test, and English I will take End of Course English I test on school grounds.  

  • Wednesday, April 10th the 5th and 8th grade will take a Reading test at the Baptist Church.

  • Thursday, April 11th English II will take an End of Course English II test at the Methodist Church.

A few reminders about test day.  The school will provide the snacks that are needed, so you do not have to purchase anything for them.  The students will eat in the cafeteria as usual except for the students taking the English II test they will eat at the church.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email me.

Thank you for sharing you STAR with us here at Newcastle ISD.  They are the reason we shine.
