From the Principal- Ms Miller

All Day Pre-K


Conroe ISD will be expanding all current half-day prekindergarten programs to full day in the 2020-21 school year. Currently, Houser and Houston Elementary Schools are the only campuses to operate full-day prekindergarten programs. The expansion is in response to the House Bill 3 requirement that all prekindergarten programs operate as full-day programs. Registration for the 2020-21 school year will take place April 20-24. Eligibility determination and enrollment will take place at the elementary school to which the student is zoned. Please visit www.conroeisd.net/ci/early-childhood/ for more information.


Please tell friends and neighbors to be on the look out for the Early Childhood Fair on April 18, 2020 at Wilkinson Elementary. Parents can register their 4 year olds with district personnel, tour a typical PK class, and play games with their kids, carnival style, to get them excited about coming to school.

Lost and Found

Please have your child check the Lost and Found by February 7. If items are not picked up by then, they will given to a local charity.


Take some time to write the name of your child in their outer garments taken to school so we can return them to their owner.

From the Counselor - Ms Taylor "Random Acts of Kindness"

Random Acts of Kindness Week is February 10-14. In an effort to show our teachers how much we love them, and in conjunction with Valentine's Day, I'm offering an opportunity for parents to send notes of kindness to their child's teacher. Here's a link to a survey you can fill out to send nice notes to teachers. Random Act Link


Students will be sending notes to classmates, friends and siblings, too. It is a great visual of how niceness is contagious and helps positive thoughts grow. See the picture below.
