STAAR Report Card Webinar

Explore the new STAAR report card with Texas PTA next week during a one-hour webinar with the Texas Education Agency. We’ll also review the brand new TexasAssessment.com.

When: Thursday, Oct. 19 at noon

The new STAAR Report Card gives parents a more in-depth look at their child’s academic strengths and areas for improvement so they can be an even stronger partner in their child’s learning. Once parents log into the new website, they’ll be able to see the actual test questions from the test, their child’s answers, and the correct answer if they answered incorrectly. The new site also provides information on boosting reading levels, questions to ask their child’s teachers, interactive videos and more.

There are many ways to measure student learning, and STAAR isn’t meant to tell the whole story. When combined with a student’s grades and teacher feedback, parents can use STAAR results to get a complete picture of their child’s progress.

LEF’s Evening for Education

Independence Day

The History

“Taxation without representation!” was the battle cry in America’s 13 Colonies, which were forced to pay taxes to England’s King George III despite having no representation in the British Parliament. As dissatisfaction grew, British troops were sent in to quell the early movement toward rebellion. Repeated attempts by the Colonists to resolve the crisis without military conflict proved fruitless.

On June 11, 1776, the Colonies’ Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia and formed a committee whose express purpose was drafting a document that would formally sever their ties with Great Britain. The committee included Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston. Jefferson, who was considered the strongest and most eloquent writer, crafted the original draft document (as seen above). A total of 86 changes were made to his draft and the Continental Congress officially adopted the final version on July 4, 1776.

The following day, copies of the Declaration of Independence were distributed, and on July 6, The Pennsylvania Evening Post became the first newspaper to print the extraordinary document. The Declaration of Independence has since become our nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty.

Bonfires and Illuminations

On July 8, 1776, the first public readings of the Declaration were held in Philadelphia’s Independence Square to the ringing of bells and band music. One year later, on July 4, 1777, Philadelphia marked Independence Day by adjourning Congress and celebrating with bonfires, bells and fireworks.

The custom eventually spread to other towns, both large and small, where the day was marked with processions, oratory, picnics, contests, games, military displays and fireworks. Observations throughout the nation became even more common at the end of the War of 1812 with Great Britain.
