Dear Washington Middle School Students and Parents,

     We hope everyone had a very enjoyable Spring Break! We were very happy to see everyone on Monday morning as they returned to school. 
    Our 7th and 8th grade students will take their first STAAR exams very soon. All of their hard work will hopefully pay off with high scores. Our teachers have worked diligently to prepare them for this challenging exam and we are confident that Washington Middle School will continue the tradition of excellence and success...
    Please know that tutorials and Super Saturdays will continue up until each respective test. Please ensure that your children are taking advantage of the extra assistance they need to rise to the level of excellence that has come to be expected here at Washington Middle School.
    We encourage you to stay in close contact with your children's teachers as well as monitor your child's attendance. ALL students need to be present on April 1 and 2 for the STAAR exams. Please schedule all appointments after 3:30 p.m.  If you have Internet service in your home you can sign up for the Parent Portal and keep track of your child's academic progress and attendance online. Please call our Registrar, Mrs. Gloria Quiroz, at extension 7610 to sign up. 
    As many of you know, last year UISD implemented a new behavior intervention program called PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support). Campuses across the district developed a plan in which positive behavior by students are promoted and rewarded by staff. At GWMS our PBIS motto is:

Grrreat Students
Watch for your SAFETY
Maintain RESPECT

PBIS promotes safety on campus, respect for self and others, and responsibility for one's own actions...
We at GWMS truly believe we have outstanding students who demonstrate these three qualities, among other positive qualities, daily. We ask that you also, at home, continue to promote these behaviors with your children.
We wish all our students the very best on the upcoming STAAR exams----WE BELIEVE IN YOU BOBCATS!


 ¡Esperamos que hayan disfrutado las vacaciones de primavera!  Nos sentimos felices de ver a todos los estudiantes regresar a clases la mañana del lunes.

     Nuestros estudiantes de 7mo y 8vo grado muy pronto tomarán por exámenes STAAR por primera vez.  Todo su trabajo se verá recompensado con puntuaciones altas.  Nuestros maestros han trabajado incansablemente para prepararlos para este reto y tenemos confianza de que la secundaria Washington continuará su tradición de excelencia y éxito…
     Queremos informarles que las sesiones de apoyo y los sábados de estudios continuarán hasta que se administren los exámenes respectivos.   Por favor asegúrese de que su hijo aproveche esta ayuda adicional para alcanzar el nivel académico sobresaliente que se espera en esta secundaria Washington.

     Los exhortamos a mantenerse en contacto con los maestros de sus hijos y a que supervisen su asistencia.  TODOS los estudiantes tienen que presentarse el 1 y 2 de abril para tomar los exámenes STAAR.  Por favor programe todas las citas para después de las 3:30 p.m.  Si cuentan con servicio de Internet en casa, pueden inscribirse al programa Portal para Padres y supervisar en línea el progreso académico y asistencia escolar de su hijo.  Por favor comuníquese con la encargada de inscripciones, la Sra. Gloria Quiroz, llamando a la extensión 7610 para registrarse. 

     Como muchos de ustedes ya saben, el ciclo escolar pasado, UISD implementó un programa de intervención conductual nuevo llamado PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support – Intervención de Conducta Positiva y Apoyo).  Las escuelas del distrito desarrollaron un plan en el cual se promueven las conductas positivas de los estudiantes y el personal las recompensa.  En la secundaria Washington nuestro lema de PBIS es:     

Grrreat Students
Watch for your

PBIS promueve la seguridad en la escuela, el respetarse a sí mismo y a los demás y las responsabilidades de nuestras acciones…

En la secundaria Washington sabemos que tenemos estudiantes destacados que demuestran estas tres cualidades, entre otras cualidades positivas, diariamente.  También les pedimos que en casa continúen promoviendo estas conductas con sus hijos.   
Deseamos a todos nuestros estudiantes lo mejor en los próximos exámenes STAAR----¡CONFIAMOS EN USTEDES BOBCATS!
