      We have received the results from the first round of 5th Grade STAAR testing in Reading and Math. The Texas Education Agency will not be sending paper copies of student results this year. Parents can access results online. The online results really have amazing information. You can see the questions and answers from your child’s assessments and much more than is available on the paper version. I have attached our district’s instructions on accessing the results online using a unique access code for your child. See attachment.

    Congratulations to  Brookhollow Elementary’s 2018 Teacher of the Year - Cliff Sims, 5th grade! His love and innovative ways of  teaching especially science and creating real life experiences for the kids is why he is our Teacher of the Year.  Mr. Sim’s mission as a teacher is  to save the world through scienceJ - a way to make a difference in the world. 

    Believing that teaching is both a science and an art, Mr. Sims incorporates hands-on activities and lessons to keep his 5th -grade  classroom from becoming boring and cumbersome. In his room, students are engaged in learning daily.  Hands on experiences become personal experiences, and personal experiences become the most solid platform for meaningful learning.   In addition, Cliff is very involved in every aspect of our school.  He does so much with Safety Patrol, Science Fair, Garden Club,  and is always willing to help.   Mr. Sims also cares for his students.  Always inquiring about what he can do to better understand how to help them be successful - a forward movement mindset to ensure the best outcome!#WhyITeach!#IBelieveInYou!

    Attention parents of 3-5th graders.....Your Brookhollow PTO is once again hosting a Talent Show which will be on April 27th.

    Auditions for the Talent Show will be held April 5th and 6th during school hours. An application/permission slip will be sent home with your child on Thursday March 29th.
     **Applications are due back by 4/3 so they can be reviewed and audition times can be scheduled.**

    We apologize for the short notice but we ran into other time constraints that prevented us from getting this information out sooner.

    Just a reminder that the Talent Show performances are for 3rd-5th grade only. However, everyone is invited to come watch some amazing Brookhollow talent. More information will be sent home about the actual Talent Show as it gets closer.

    If you have any questions, please contact the PTO at PTOBrookhollow@gmail.com or Nara Dedrick, PTO President at 602-620-5663
