Dear Kawas Families,
We hope your Spring Break was pleasant and restful. As we approach our busiest time of year, we expect everyone to be ready to work hard and put forth their best efforts to make these last few weeks before assessments count!
I guarantee our teachers will be working diligently, as they continue to prepare our students for their academic success. This time is critical, as it allows students to polish their skills as they strive to achieve their highest potential.
During the next few weeks we ask that students are present and on time every day, well rested, and ready to learn. More importantly, we want each student to know we believe in them and expect nothing but their best every single day. We have amazing and talented students at Kawas Elementary, and we are ready to see them shine!
We will continue our tutorials schedule as well as our Library Nights every Wednesday from 3:30-5:00 with Ms. Bazan. Don’t miss out on the chance to read more books and earn more AR points! We also offer book check-out so you can take more books to read at home!
Finally, please note the following dates as STAAR assessments begin next week!
March 28th: 4th Grade Writing & 5th Grade Math
March 29th: 5th Grade Reading
May 8th: 3rd-4th Grade Math; 5th Grade Math Re-take
May 9th: 3rd-4th Grade Reading; 5th Grade Reading Re-take

If you have any questions regarding the STAAR assessments, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
Wishing our Kawas Families the best,
Ms. V. Ortegon, Principal
