Happy New Year, Tiger Family!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and used the time to spend with family and rejuvenate. As we move into the 2nd semester, we are excited to continue focusing on growing your students every single day. Our scholars in PreK-2nd grade will continue to build foundational skills to enhance their math and reading comprehension. Students in 3rd-6th grade will begin preparing students for STAAR assessments and focus on mastering standards in all core content areas. 

Last month, we had our annual production of Beauty and the Beast Jr., and it was absolutely amazing. Our scholars had an opportunity to showcase their talents to a packed audience at the Cullen Theater at the Wortham Center and received a standing ovation for their fantastic performance. Kudos to our scholars and staff for a job well done. Thank you, parents, for your dedication and support in making this annual event a success. 

Our PTC will host a Family Game night this month, so come out and join in the family fun! Our Dazzling Dolls will perform at the Rockets halftime show please see the flier below. We will celebrate student accomplishments with our honor roll and perfect attendance festivities. 

Students will conduct their MOY NWEA assessments at the end of January. We will begin tutorials this semester, so be on the lookout for a letter for your scholar to attend. 

This month, we are starting our new PBIS program to help promote positive behavior on campus. Students have the opportunity to receive points for showing CREW characteristics throughout the campus. Our counselor, Mrs. Taylor, will have a reward store for students to cash in the points each month.

Parents, as a friendly reminder, attendance is vital to your scholar's success, and we need every scholar at school each day. Students are considered tardy after 8:05 A.M. and absent after 9:45 A.M. Students with excessive absences will receive a letter from the school and are at risk of attending summer school. Each day your child is absent, please send a note with your scholar's name, grade level, and reason for absence. Parents, thank you for your continued support in ensuring your scholars are at school and on time each day. 

This semester’s Campus Focus:

Continuing to be your scholar's passport to success by providing a quality education and learning experience every day.  

We look forward to seeing you in 2024!

Growing Students with Excellence, Every Day!

Hello, Parents and Guardians, 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Break! 

January is the month of perseverance. I will roll out SEL lessons on perseverance to promote healthy exercising of this character trait within the scholars' day-to-day interactions. Continuing to put effort into doing or reaching something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition ultimately leads to lifelong success. The goal is for our scholars to witness the benefits of this trait and share it with others. It is also helpful to explore this trait at home with your scholar. 

Be sure to join me for Coffee with the Counselor on January 10th at 9:00 A.M.!

Tyesha Taylor, M.S.

Northshore Campus Counselor

Character Trait for January: PERSEVERANCE

Monthly Mental Health Moments: FINISH THE RACE

From the desk of our horticulturist, Four26Organic Mulch and Soil, LLC:


  1. Consider what to plant. Do you want to plant a vegetable garden? 
  2. Pick the best garden spot. Almost all vegetables and many types of flowering plants need 6-8 hours of full sun each day. 
  3. Clear the Ground.
  4. Test and improve your soil. Prepare your planting beds. Pick your plants. Start planting. Water at the right time.

Parent Portal Help:

Can't access the Parent Portal to see your scholar's grades or attendance? Complete the form below so you can receive an email to activate your account. 




To change an absence to an excused absence, a parent or doctor's note must be received in the attendance office no later than three days after the student returns to school. If a note is not received, the absence will remain unexcused (students who miss 10 or more school days may receive an attendance behavior contract and could be subject to compulsory attendance laws). A phone call does not take the place of a written note. Notes can be submitted to Mrs. Harsiton at

As a reminder, school starts at 7:55 AM, and your child is tardy at 8:05 AM. They must be signed in at the front office if you arrive after 8:05 AM. Three tardies are equivalent to one absence, so please bring your scholar to school on time.

National School Choice Week

National School Choice Week (NSCW) informs, inspires, and empowers parents like you to discover the K-12 education options available for your children, including traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and homeschooling.

School choice is important because every child deserves an effective, challenging, and motivating education that inspires them to be successful and achieve their dreams. But children learn in different ways and have different talents, skills, and challenges. What might be a good school for one student might not be a good fit for another child. School choice allows you to identify the best learning environments for your individual children.

Join the celebration! Share what you love about RSPA with photos & testimonials on social media, each day during NSCW, January 21-27!

Tag us at @rspa07 and use the hashtag #schoolchoice!
