Welcome, Macdonell Elementary friends and families,

The Spring season is just around the corner and our students, teachers, and staff are diligently working to prepare for many upcoming events! Just as fun festivities such as WBCA events and Read Across American Week are near, so too are annual state assessments. I know our students have been putting in their best effort and therefore will be ready to rise to the challenge to prove their academic skills and readiness. Beginning this month, some of our students will start with TELPAS assessments which will continue through the end of March and the first week of April. 

Also, in April we’ll kick off our STAAR assessments which will continue through mid-May. Please note the testing dates provided below for each grade level and subject area. As we continue to review for our annual exams it is of utmost importance to have our students in class every day and on time.

Once again, thank you, parents, for all your support in helping us provide the best opportunities for our students to succeed! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or my administrative team, and/or your child’s teachers directly.
