Wayside Insider News from Wayside Schools - April 2019

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Waysiders,

Congratulations on finishing your first round of STAAR testing! I know this can be a stressful time for our scholars, and I appreciate your support ensuring that they were well-rested, well-fed, and ready for the big day.

While it may feel like the school year is coming to a close, we still have five busy weeks ahead. It’s important that all of our scholars are at school each day, and ready to finish the year strong. With your help, we can ensure our scholars enter 2019-20 more prepared than ever.

Together we prepare college-ready, community-engaged, global citizens.

Matt Abbott, Superintendent
