Good Afternoon Gorzycki Tigers

Here are your announcements for today:

Attention 7th and 8th graders: On Tuesday, April 9th, 7th graders will be taking the STAAR writing test and 8th graders will be taking the STAAR Math test. On Wednesday, April 10th, 7th graders who are enrolled in Accelerated Math will be taking the 8th grade STAAR math test and 8th graders will be taking the STAAR reading test. On these testing days, when you are testing, you need to bring a sack lunch, book (paper book no electronic book) pencil and highlighters to your testing room. Students cannot have electronic devices or phones with them in their testing room (this includes blue tooth watches). If you forget a sack lunch you will be able to purchase one in the cafeteria on those days.

The no-bummer summer Ben Braver was hoping for is ruined when his best friend moves away. But it thankfully takes a positive turn when he’s invited to attend the very secretive Kepler Academy, where his lifelong dream of becoming a superhero may just come true. Kepler is a school for kids with special abilities. But when strange things start to happen, Ben wants to help. The problem is, why is he the only kid at school whose special abilities have not shown up yet? Can he be the superhero he’s always wanted to be without special powers? Buy the Super Life of Ben Braver at the Library Book Fair!
