Roaring News!

Dear Baldwin Community,


This past Thursday and Friday, the Baldwin PTA held their annual Gifts of Time auction items. The children were very excited at the opportunities they might have to share some special time with their teachers, the PE coaches, Art and Music teachers, Betty J., and the administrators. Thank you to everyone that dropped by the school and signed up for one of the many events that were available. I personally cannot wait to share my time with those that were the highest bidders for lunch, bedtime story reading, my ice cream dates, principal for 1/2 day, subbing in a class and the recordings of my telephone message by nine weeks. I know that I will have a blast with all of these students!


Perhaps you didn't get to participate in this year's Gifts of Time, well, there is still another fun event that is right around the corner that you can come and enjoy. The annual Baldwin PTA Bash will be held this coming Friday, April 24th and I guarantee that you will have a great time with friends as well as have the opportunity to bid on some amazing baskets and other items in the silent auction. Please join us this Friday for this exciting event that benefits our school; put on your boots and scoot your way to the Baldwin Bash!


I also want to remind everyone that this week is our second round of STAAR testing. The school will be closed to visitors Monday through Wednesday due to the administration of our state assessments. Your children and our teachers have been concentrating and learning all of the required Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills all year at each of the grade levels, and I am confident that the children are well-prepared and will succeed on their assessments. Please be sure your children get plenty of sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time, especially on these three days.


If you haven't read this week's ROAR, please make some time to read it. I sent a congratulatory note to our students, teachers and families for their hard work and you don't want to miss it! Also in the ROAR there are some important dates for some fun spring time events you won't want to miss. So check out the Weekly ROAR and mark your calendars for all of the fun-filled events that are scheduled for April, May and June.


Thank you again for your continuous support! I look forward to seeing you at Baldwin.


Roaring with Pride,

 Dr. Peña
