How to Access Your Child's STAAR Report Card

Parents of 8th Graders,

Your child will be bringing home a STAAR report card from the first administration of the test. Please look over this with your student. Giddings Middle School encourages you to look at the results online. To access online information please visit,
You'll be asked to enter your child's access code, which can be found in the bottom left hand corner of the report card ##AA#A (example), as well as your child's birthday. If your child has misplaced the report card, please select, find my unique student access code. When asked for the PEIMS code, you will put your child's social security number. A code will be given for you to continue online. Once you are online, you can click on each test to find out more information and how they did, per question. If you have ANY questions, please email Mrs. Ulrich at

Family Impact Nights

In Giddings ISD, the theme for the 2017-2018 school year is "Make an Impact," and it will begin with the goal of encouraging families to foster, re-establish, or even strengthen relationships in the household. Therefore, with this mission in mind, the school will set aside one night per month in which all students in every grade level will not be assigned homework.

It is the hope that this small change in Giddings' homework procedures will at least bring families back together during the busy week so parents can feel as though they have more time to positively impact their children. Parents, after all, provide the greatest education to their children in nearly all of the important areas of life. Providing some quality time for parents to do just that, is a top priority of Giddings ISD. Therefore, the 3rd Wednesday of each month, beginning in October, will be "Family Impact Nights" for our school district. The district will have suggestions for families posted on the website and district Facebook page.

Roger Dees, Superintendent
