Six Weeks Tests: Our first six weeks tests are taking place THIS WEEK for grades 2 -12. Testing will be Wednesday, September 20, to Friday, September 22. Please be sure that your child is studying for these tests. Check with assignments sheets and teachers to know which test will take place on what day. These tests count as 2 test grades on your child’s 6 weeks grade. Report cards will go home next week!!
Picture Day: We will have picture day on Thursday, October 5, for individual school pictures. Information was sent home with students last week. You can also order and pay for picture packages online at: https://www.phototexasphotography.com/ then use the preorder code: PTPUC. These pictures will be the ones that will be published in the yearbook.
Mumford Fundraiser: Students are busy selling cookie dough, sweet rolls, popcorn, home décor and all kinds of great things that will be here just in time for the Thanksgiving break! We need all the students to get out and sell to help our school. Be sure to sign your child up for online sales which allows for people to easily access and shop our fundraiser items at their leisure. Online sales are also great for students not wanting to sell door to door due to safety concerns. Students will be receiving prizes for selling items, and the more they sell the more they get!! The official end of the fundraiser is Friday, September 29, so be sure that your children are out there selling!
4-H Reminders: We had a GREAT turnout at the first 4-H meeting of the year a few weeks ago. There were over 100 people there to find out more about the organization! Please be sure to sign up to receive reminders and information about 4-H through their 2 methods of communication:
