8L Field Trip
Wednesday May 13, 2020 the students of 8L will take a field trip to the Holocaust museum and Hermann park where we will engage in fun as well as community service along side the Hermann Park Conservancy. If your child is in 8L (aka has Bano-Garrett-Duesterbeck), they will need to pay their cluster fee to be able to join us on this trip. If your family is unable to pay the fee, please email Mrs. Williames as we do have scholarships available. May 13 is a STAAR test day, students that do not attend the field trip will be doing packets in a lock down room all day - It's not a fun alternative! In the coming weeks, students that have paid their fee will receive paperwork which is necessary to join us on our trip.
We will need chaperones for our trip. If you are able to join us, please email Mrs. Williames.
Kleenex - We are running low on tissues in some of our cluster rooms. Please have your child bring donations to Mrs. Williames to be distributed equally.
This semester Ms. Harper and I are working together to give our students' options when it comes to tutorials outside of the school day. The options are below.

Science (Bano) Mrs. Bano is offering tutorials on Tuesday morning during 7:45-8:15 am. She will send an email request if your child needs additional support in a particular TEKS. Please send me a confirmation if they can make it.
If your child wants to attend it anyways, please send them to me in advance. I need the confirmation so I can be ready to address their specific needs.
These tutorials are organized to provide additional support to the improve student performance and I encourage students to attend these, specially if it's requested.
