What's happening next week

Dear Parents,


Conference times are quickly approaching, if you have not signed up for a time with your child's teacher, please make plans to do so. You are a big part of our team helping our kids learn as much as they can!


A reminder about our behavior communication folders - these will be used to bring behaviors needing improvement to your attention as well as to celebrate the awesome days that your child has. Those will be kept in their binders and will come home each Monday with their communication folders. Please initial the week and return it on Tuesday.


Please look in your child’s purple folder each Monday for important papers, as well as graded work before sending the folder back to school with your child on Tuesday. There is also a place for a signature inside the folder - please sign and date the folder before returning it to school.


Please remember that if you have a change of transportation, to send an e-mail to fe@katyisd.org before 2:30pm. You may cc us so that we are informed too. Thank you!
