Our schools run so smoothly, but how smoothly would they run without our secretaries and office staff? This Wednesday, April 27 is Administrative Assistants Day, so make sure you take time to thank all of our wonderful ladies around the district who consistently go above and beyond to help students, parents and staff.

Growing Excellence (+10 for ALL)
STAAR scores are in, and we are so proud of our 5th and 8th grade reading and math teachers for their hard work in helping our students grow in their learning. Thank you to the following teachers:
- 5th Reading - Melanie Miller and Andrea Singleton
- 5th Math - Mechelle McMichael and Kristin Lacy
- 8th Reading - Melissa Dixon
- 8th Math - Tracy Roden
The most impressive data that I would like to share is how many students grew from their performance last year. 77% of our 5th reading students grew from their performance last year. 94% of our 5th grade math students grew from last year, 71% of our 8th grade reading students grew from last year, and 87% of our 8th grade math students grew from last year. To put that in perspective, 57% of Texas students grew in 2015. Tatum ISD students are not just passing. They are growing in their learning.
For more information, here is a link to tell you how much we have grown this year.
College AND Career
Do you want to encourage a student to be a Spanish teacher? Check out this College and Career project by Madelyn Haden and Daisy Hillin in Coach Rocha's Spanish class.
Making High School Registration like CollegeBelow is an image showing how our incoming 9th through 12th graders will register for next year's classes and update their personal graduation plan using Career Cruising software. Students will log in to their account look at their transcript and select courses in the same fashion that they will do that for college. Special thanks to Jo Miller for all of her work in getting this new feature up and running.
Check out Career Cruising and how kids will be registering for classes at THS next month. #Excellence4ALL pic.twitter.com/RdfIyoMZfp— Tatum ISD (@tatumisd) April 15, 2016
