Announcements for Friday, August 30

The first week of school was fantastic.  Our students learned the procedures for learning and behavior.  All students learned how to come into the school, find their class, learn the routines for the day and finally find their way to their end of day transportation.  Thank you to all of our staff for their hard work and organization.  We have the best and most committed staff in the state of Texas.

Car Pick Up
Great job to everyone on car and parent pick up. We finished on the first day of school at 4:07, and on every day after that we finished before 3:50. To help make the line move faster, we ask that you pull forward to buckle seat belts, so the cars behind you can pull up to load their children. Again thank you for making car pick up very quick and smooth. Finally, please know that all students must be picked up by 4:00 p.m.

College Day and Open House on Thursday, Sep. 5
This Thursday, we are having our 2nd College Day, and parents are invited to join us from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m.  Donuts will be provided, and parents are encouraged to wear their college shirts and visit their child's class from 7:30 - 8:00  to see how much we are already learning. At 8:00, we will have Title 1 parent meeting in the gym, and it will end around 8:30. Also, early voting in the Tax Ratification Election will be held in the foyer from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

We will have College Days throughout the year, and we encourage students and staff to wear college gear to school. The purpose of College Day is to start promoting College Readiness now. Every student has the potential to receive a college or vocational education beyond high school. Now is the time to begin promoting that to every student in our school. 

Boy Scouts
The Boy Scouts will be here on Thursday, Sep. 5 to have sign ups. They will speak to 1st - 4th grade boys during PE and have sign ups on Thursday evening from 7 - 8 p.m. in the 2nd - 4th grade cafeteria.
