STAAR Literacy Night Held at Ybarra Middle School

Last week we had a great turnout at our PFC David Ybarra Middle School “STAAR Literacy Night”. The event was to provide our parents some JEDI Training Sessions for the STAAR Tests. That is, we provided simple trainings on activities that parents can do at home with their child to help them on the STAAR tests.

JEDI Math training sessions dealt with the following: Learning simple math games to play with their child to help them prepare for the STAAR, Utilizing technology at home (Helpful Apps & Websites), using Multiplication charts (strategies and tips), Helping students get familiar with reference material (Measurement and Area formulas).

The Reading JEDI sessions focus on such topics as Plot, Drama, Expository text and Main Idea.

Overall, it was a fantastic evening. Our parents picked up some good strategies and our Breakers, Band and Mariachi students had a chance to show off their talents. Thank you to our students, our parents and our out of this world staff. “May the SCORES be with us!”
