Home and School Connection, Week of May 18-22

A Note from Mrs. Buckels

Hello Parr Patriot Families,


Thank you to all the parents and students who came to our Reverse Car Parade! We were so excited to see all the smiling faces! It made all our teachers so happy! We really miss you all!


This will be the last week for lessons in it's learning. The following week will be used to make up any work that needs to be completed, supply pick up and end of the year celebrations.


Nurse Burke still has a lot of medicine that has not been picked up. She will be at our supply pick-up if you still have medicine in the clinic.


If you have driven by the school lately, you will notice that they are working on our new playground! We are so excited to have a much larger playground next year. We will have a walking track, two new play structures and MORE parking! There will also be a new road that will go around the playground.


Next week's work will be available on it's Learning on Monday morning. Don't forget to check out the other courses that your child has access to-PE, Art, Music, Library and our Parr page.


In this S'more, you will find videos for each day of the week with the morning announcements if you would like to start your student's day with these. You can access them from this S'more or from our Parr it's learning page. We will also have a Workout Wednesday video from Coach Henderson.


Don't forget our technology department has a helpline that is now available for any issues you may be having! The number is 281-284-0500. They are available M-F from 8:00-4:00.
