Ranch Hand Reminders
from our principal, Glenn Forde


Dear Parents/Guardians,

As this is our last “Ranch Hand Reminders” for the 2016-2017 school year, we would like to start by saying thank you. This has been another wonderful year at Longs Creek and we would not have experienced the success we had this year without your unwavering support. It has been a true honor and privilege to work with your children every single day.

Reminders for our last week include:

  • Monday, May 29 – Student/Staff Holiday
  • Tuesday, May 30 – Kinder Awards (9:00-10:00 – cafeteria)
  • Wednesday, May 31 – 3rd Grade Picnic Lunch (playground); 5th Grade Awards Ceremony (5:45-7:00 – cafeteria)
  • Thursday, June 1 – Report Cards Distributed; LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

 

While we understand that the kindergarten awards ceremony is a celebratory moment for families, we will support the district’s decision to not allow secondary level students on campus during this time. Also, we will not be able to pull 1st-5th students from classroom instruction/activities to attend the ceremony. We appreciate your support in this matter.

Please, read a letter from Dr. Dow, Chief Instructional Officer, explaining the STAAR assessments and find the availability of scores and an outline of the 2017 STAAR performance labels and descriptors below.

I hope you all have a safe, fun, and relaxing summer!

Sincerely,

Glenn Forde, Principal

2017 STAAR Performance Labels and Descriptors 

 

  • Does Not Meet Grade Level. Students at this level have not passed since performance at this level indicates students are unlikely to succeed in the next grade or course without significant, ongoing academic intervention. Students in this category do not demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the assessed knowledge and skills.
  • Approaches Grade Level. Students at this level have met the assessment requirements for purposes of Student Success Initiative grade promotion and are considered to have met at least the minimum passing standard. Students in this category generally demonstrate the ability to apply the assessed knowledge and skills in familiar contexts and are likely to succeed in the next grade or course with targeted academic intervention.
  • Meets Grade Level. Students at this performance level have a high likelihood of success in the next grade or course but may still need some short-term, targeted academic intervention. Students in this category generally demonstrate the ability to think critically and apply the assessed knowledge and skills in familiar contexts.
  • Masters Grade Level. Students at this level are expected to succeed in the next grade or course with little or no academic intervention. Students in this category demonstrate the ability to think critically and apply the assessed knowledge and skills in varied contexts, both familiar and unfamiliar.
