The survey window is open May 6 May 20, A student survey is also offered and that window is open May 2 May 18, Parents are able to come log in at our Pony Lab in E-3 before school in order to complete the survey. Thank you for an AMAZING year. We set out this year to get our families involved in more academic events. As a school we have made strides towards an even better partnership in the future. This year we held 52 events with 1692 family members in attendance compared to last year when 36 academic events were offered and 958 people were in attendance. Next year, we hope for even more involvement AMAZING STAFF This year teachers worked together as a team to make progress towards improving AIMS scores in reading, writing, and math. We will continue the quest next year. Great job, Mr. Miller and Mrs. Gallegos, organizing the testing week. We were able to have 99.75% of our students finished the test! The Mustang Team is proud to congratulate Mrs. Julie Stapleton, Flowing Wells Junior High School Teacher of the Year representative. Mrs. Stapleton teaches science and sponsors the MESA Club. Eighth grade parents must pay particular attention to the date of the 8th Grade Promotion Dance Friday, May 13th. The hours of the dance are 5:30-8:00pm. We are firm in our expectation that students and parents not treat this like a high school prom no risqué clothing, no limousines. Mr. Ruiz, Student Council sponsor, has written an article for this newsletter detailing the expectations for this 8th grade dance that each parent and student should read. May are early release days for the junior high. Students will complete their final exams during class these days. The last day of school is Thursday, May 19. Students must have all textbooks and uniforms turned in before the last day of school. Also, all class fees and cafeteria balances must be paid before the last day of school. Students will not be issued a Certificate of Promotion if they have any outstanding fees or materials owed. 8th graders will not be permitted to register for high school without this Certificate and 7th graders will have the over-due amount carried over to next year. The best thing to do is to take care of it all before May 19 th. Report cards will be mailed home on Monday, May 23, Please check your child s report card. Any student receiving an F on a semester grade will be required to attend summer school. Summer Registration Returning 8th graders and incoming 7th graders, on July 19th, 20th, and 21st we will have open registration. So plan accordingly. Packets will be mailed home the week of July 5th.
