Morning Drop-off Reminders
Student safety is our priority. Students can be dropped off beginning at 7:15 am. Please do not drop students off before 7:15 am as we do not have staff on duty. If going through the car rider line, students must be dropped off on the curb side. When utilizing the drop-off line, please pull all the way forward as this allows many students to be dropped quickly. If you are walking your student to the front door or gate, please park and use the crosswalk to approach the school.

1st Grade Dyslexia Screener
1st Grade Dyslexia Screener
Texas Education Code (§38.003) mandates that all first grade students be screened for dyslexia and related disorders no later than January 31, 2024. The screening is designed to ensure that all students are appropriately screened, and if necessary, are evaluated further so that reading difficulties will be addressed in a timely manner. The results from the screening will be used to guide instruction at the classroom level, shared with you, and used to determine if additional interventions are required for your student.
If you have any questions about the screening process, please contact Kelly Pieterse at 512-715-5122

Bertram's Attendance Tracking
Bertram's ADA for this past week was 95.1%
ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance and is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. "98 IS Great!", so 98% is our goal! We recognize that illnesses and events take place that necesitate absences, however, we do encourage every student to be in school every day he/she is able. Let's work toward 98%!
