How did you prepare this morning?

Did you fill your kids with a breakfast high in protein?

Did they get a good night’s sleep?

Did you fill them with thoughts of “You can do it!” “You’re going to do great!” “You’ve got this!” etc.?

Or did you just pretend it was any other school day?

Or are you one of those growing number of parents who just doesn’t send your kids to school on these days?

There’s been a lot of talk about STAAR this legislative session.
