Reaching for the STAARS at Jones-Clark

Jones-Clark Elementary prepped for the upcoming week of STAAR testing with a superhero themed family night event and a pep rally.

Parents of third, fourth and fifth-graders received test taking tips and strategies, mock test results and take home activities. They also rotated through subject-specific stations with math, science and reading and writing activities.    

Local entrepreneur AJ Turner brought motivation and music to the pep rally the following day. He encouraged test takers to go to bed early, relax, be confident and do their best as the students danced and cheered on their classmates. “We are proud of our superhero students and staff and together we will succeed,” said teacher Glenda McCray.
