After a long, colder than usual winter, isn’t it nice that the warm weather has arrived?
At Ligarde, the warm weather represents a transition. We transition to state assessments and end of year activities. In particular, we administer TELPAS and STAAR tests. TELPAS assesses the English language proficiency skills of our limited English students while the STAAR assesses the academic skills of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.
We also transition into the 5th Six weeks. With only two six weeks left in the school year, we see the changes in the children. They are reading at higher levels and solving Math computations that are more difficult than when we were in school. I am very proud of all the progress shown by the students and the hard work and determination by the faculty and staff. This wonderful group of individuals exemplifies what true caring is about.
Finally, thank you to all our parents! Thank you for helping your children with homework and school projects. We couldn’t be successful without you.
Have a great Spring!
Ms. Rosalba Martinez
