Week at a Glance

Week 4...BEHIND US!! The first 7th and 8th grade football and volleyball games are underway. What an example of #CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE from our FISH PHILOSOPHY. The students work as a unit, using individual skills, and whether the outcome be a W or L, they learn a lesson. "Success is never so interesting as the struggle - not even to the successful."

Ms. Erickson and I loved Fun Fridays this week! The music and fun vibe from the 6th graders is the best! It is great to watch them evolve these first weeks of middle school.


We will have nuggets for parents in the Counselor Corner for you to chew on (lol). Our hope is to provide relevant ways to help you navigate middle school with your child or children.

On Wednesday, September 14th at Curriculum Night, Ms. Erickson and Ms. Lindquist will speak on THRIVING, NOT JUST SURVIVING MIDDLE SCHOOL @ 5:15pm in the cafeteria. We look forward seeing you.

How do I see my Counselor?

Ms. Erickson and Ms. Lindquist have a Student Counseling Request Form on campus students can fill out when they have a concern. We welcome all students to fill out the QR code posted in their classroom. We are here to help with all concerns. Any parental/guardian concerns, you are welcome to email your child's counselor. Email addresses are below.

Family Resource Needs

We know there are East Families who need assistance as the pandemic continues to keep people out of work and the economy fluctuates. CISD works hard to stay connected to our families in need through food assistance, school supplies, technology support and social/emotional support. If you are in need of support, please reach out to the counselors. You can also click on the link attached to become aware of the resources potentially available in our community. Coppell ISD partners with many local non-profits that are able and willing to help our Coppell ISD families.
Thriving and not just Surviving Middle School

We have put together a short introduction to help East parents and student navigate the world of middle school. Also, academic and social-emotional areas of needs the counselors can provide assistance. We are here to help all student be their best.
