Parents and Students,
Welcome to our 2016-2017 school year. We are so excited to start off our new academic year.
Great initiatives and excellent academic opportunities have been planned for this year. Some of these include, Accelerated Reader, ACE 21st Century Program, Extended Day, School Clubs, Leader In Me and many more.
We want to remind parents that all students in grades 1st – 5th should be actively reading so they can test on Accelerated Reader by mid-September. This program has helped our students gain fluency and comprehension on their reading passages. All students should be reading daily a minimum of 30 minutes.
PFC Mario Ybarra Elementary is a 2016 TEA “Met Standard” school. Our students did well on the mandated STAAR test this past year and our goal is to continue excelling in academics. Along with a good education, parental support also plays a big role in how successful students can be in their academics. “We urge you to be involved in their education and to ensure that they come to school every day!” Attendance is crucial to their success!!
Setting high goals and expectations is something that I take seriously for all of our young students. If we believe in them and we set those expectations, then they will rise to that level.
We look forward to working with you and we ask for your help and cooperation in making it a successful year!
Linda Hernandez, Principal
