Congrats Mrs. Mac!

We are thrilled to announce that Mrs. Laura McCormack was a STARS Teacher of the Year winner for Richardson ISD! This award is a VERY big deal in RISD - only ten teachers per year win and they go through a lengthy process, including interviews and surprise classroom observations. We are extremely proud of Mrs. Mac and thrilled that the STARS committee saw in her what we see in her each day! Congratulations!!

May is WRE Multicultural Food Month!

This month we will be celebrating WRE Multicultural Food Month as we continue to teach and learn about diversity and inclusion. Thank you to our wonderful PTA board member of Multicultural Arts and Diversity Inclusion, Kennedy Everett Fulbright for putting together such a fantastic plan for us this month to celebrate different cultures (while also supporting local restaurants and helping parents take a break from cooking dinner).

Students will come home with their passports and a flyer with more information on Monday! Please be on the lookout for these to come home!
