TORO Shoots for the STAAR


TORO Shoots for the STAAR is an 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, getting daily exercise, 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 our partnership with Texas Children's Hospital, this program is offered to Houston area schools for free! Schools are selected based on the nominations that are received and anyone is eligible to submit a nomination. Tell us why your school is deserving of a free TORO Shoots for the STAAR show here!
