Teacher Appreciation Week
Our teachers work so hard to create a safe, engaging learning environment for our students. This week is the week we celebrate their commitment and contributions. Please consider taking a moment to send a kind word of appreciation.

Teacher of the Year "Fan Favorite"
Each year the District asks the greater community to vote on the "Fan Favorite" for Teacher of the Year.  POMS Teacher of the Year, Ms. Kerri Coffman Fujiwara (7C) is definitely our favorite!  You can help her become "Fan Favorite"  by voting every day until May 6th at

8th Grade STAAR Scores
Late Friday, we received individual score reports for students who took 8th gr Reading STAAR and 8th gr Math STAAR. We expect to send those home Monday afternoon with students.  We are very pleased with the results.

STAAR Reading - Increased from 2015
98% Met Standard, with 52% scoring at Advanced

STAAR Math - Increased from 2015
94% Met Standard, with 30% scoring at Advanced

Students taking Algebra will take their EOC (End of Course Exam) on Wednesday, May 4th, thus will only have a Reading score on their score report.

Dress Code Check
We are noticing more students pushing the limits with dress code.  Please take a moment to check your Charger before leaving the house.

Some things to look for:

  • Skirts should be no more than 2 inches above the knee.  Many girls are rolling their skirts at the waist to make them shorter, and some girls are simply growing taller.  Please let out the hem if need be to make sure they are not too short.
  • Bottoms should be khaki, navy blue, blue denim or official school tartan. We are noticing gray and black, which is not acceptable.  
  • Tops should be solid white, royal blue or light gray, with no color variations, patterns, words, emblems or logos.

Save the Date!
Sunday, May 1st @ 12:30 p.m.
