CG Families,

You'll notice in our social media posts and down below, one of our focuses this year is to showcase students to their peers and our school community choosing greatness! We are overwhelmed with joy at how amazing and thoughtful our students are towards each other and our school. Thank you for teaching them manners, ethics, and respect. We appreciate it and partner with you to build successful foundations for all CG students!

We also have several family events coming up and opportunities to join in with our school community. We hope to see you soon!

Mrs. Cameron, Principal

CSISD VATRE information

On August 16, 2022, the CSISD Board of Trustees officially called for a voter-approved tax ratification election (VATRE) to be placed on the November ballot, with the additional revenue generated to be used for increasing CSISD employee compensation.

If the VATRE is approved, CSISD will have an additional $5 million to use toward increasing employee salaries. The CSISD tax rate would still be lowered 3.71 cents, which is 21.99 cents (or 15.7%) lower than it was in 2017-18.

The CSISD tax ratification election will be the very last item on your ballot.

Please click the links below (including the video) to learn more about the CSISD VATRE on the November 8, 2022 ballot.

STEAM Night is Coming!

We are very excited to announce that Cypress Grove will be hosting the first-ever STEAM night. We will have 18 interactive stations set up around the school that focus on science, technology, engineering, art, or math. All students and families of Cypress Grove are invited to participate! This will be a great family night and look forward to building our CG community! We will need supplies to make these stations possible and we've created a wish list of items we need for each station. If you would like to donate, we would be so very appreciative! Thank you for considering helping us prepare for this upcoming event!
