Generation Texas Week

NISD has designated November 17th - November 21st as "Generation Texas" week. Studies have shown that early exposure to the concept of higher education helps students when it comes time to make that BIG decision. Because of this, we will be focusing on higher education awareness and encouraging students in ALL grade levels to start setting academic goals. During the week we will have various activities that will introduce our students to advantages of getting a college education. Also, during the week, we are asking students and teachers to participate in the following dress up days.

  • Monday, Nov. 17 - "We're setting our goals SKY HIGH!" - wear blue
  • Tuesday, Nov. 18 - "Crazy about College" - wear crazy socks
  • Wednesday, Nov. 19 - "Dress for Success" - dress up in career attire: scrubs, firemen, policemen, business suits, etc.
  • Thursday, Nov. 20 - "Hats Off to College - Show Your College Spirit" - wear collegiate hats and shirts
  • Friday, Nov. 21 - "Salute to our Superheroes" - wear red, white, blue or camouflage to celebrate careers in the military

Message from the PTA...

Have you joined PTA yet? If you were a Member last year, thank you very much! Please remember all PTA memberships are yearly and we hope you will join again. Your donation does not commit you for any volunteer time but does give an opportunity, as parents, to make an impact on our children's lives and education. How does joining benefit your child/family? Clara Love PTA helps fund teacher grants, Field Day, STAAR snacks, Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, Fall Festival, Holiday Shop, Ho Ho Ho Down, teacher luncheons, birthday gifts for the teachers, spring dance, and many other programs throughout the school year. We are also trying to raise funds for a playground shade covering over the large playground and fundraisers alone have not been successful enough. Please check your child's Thursday folder for a membership form or request one in the office.

Thank you, Clara Love PTA
