Letter to 5th Grade Parents
Dear Deerwood Families of Students in Fifth Grade,
In 2022-2023, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) will undergo a redesign, which will include adding writing to reading assessments, capping the number of multiple-choice questions, and adding new item types (e.g., drag and drop, short and extended typed responses, etc.).
On February 16, your child will be participating in an online stand-alone field test, which will not impact grade promotion. Humble ISD will not receive any field-test data or students’ scores from this administration. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will use this data to make adjustments to next year’s STAAR assessment.
In addition to the February stand-alone field test, Humble ISD will assess STAAR between May 10-20, 2022.
In the coming weeks/months, you will receive more information regarding specific test dates.

ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
In response to concerns about traffic on Forest Garden Drive, we are meeting with district safety personnel to review our arrival and dismissal procedures. We will communicate any recommendations and changes.
Lake Houston Family YMCA Bridge Fest Family Fun Run will be held on Saturday, February 26th. Deerwood will once again have a team and families can sign up to participate under our campus name. Register with Coupon Code HISD to receive $10 off your total registration in January. The top two elementary schools and the top two secondary schools with the highest number of people who register to participate in a race will receive a portion of the funds raised for new PE supplies.
