Pass the STAAR is an educational assembly program that teaches 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students how to prepare for the STAAR Test, but there's one problem: TORO is afraid of the word "Test" and this time of the school year has him very worried. With the help of TORO's friends at NRG Stadium, TORO learns that tests are nothing to be afraid of when you properly prepare just like the Houston Texans prepare for a football game. During the program, students will learn how to prepare their bodies and mind for the test through proper nutrition, daily exercise, getting 8 hours of sleep each night, listening attentively, developing consistent study habits and practicing their STAAR strategies. The program includes a 45 minute interactive assembly and other great prizes.
Thanks to Texas Children's Hospital, Pass the STAAR is offered to Houston area schools for free. Schools are selected based on the nominations that are received. All programs for the 2022-23 school year have been awarded, but join the waitlist be alerted if any programs become available and when nominations open for the 2023-24 school year!
