Happy Mother's Day to all the CRE moms, step-moms, grandmothers, aunties, godmothers, and all other positive female role models in our students' lives. We celebrate you this weekend and hope you have a wonderful day!

We wanted to give a special thank you for all the fabulous Teacher/Staff Appreciation treats and goodies this past week! We were showered with love notes and daily treats in the lounge. Thank you so very much to the CRE PTA for organizing such lovely spreads each day!

STAAR Testing this week:

Students in grades 3-5 are scheduled to participate in the STAAR assessment this week. Our campus will be participating in STAAR Tuesday, May 10th (Mathematics); Wednesday, May 11th(Reading); Thursday, May 12th (Science). This is a state mandated test. Due to security and confidentiality measures used to support with testing, NO VISITORS WILL BE ALLOWED ON CAMPUS during these three days.

We appreciate your support with these very important testing dates!

From the Librarian

Hello CRE families!

I would like to start by saying thank you for all the support that you give the library in creating responsible library users! This week was the last week to check out books! Next week, the students will visit the library to return all books and learn about Summer Reading Challenges and opportunities happening around our local libraries! Students Pk-2nd grade will come in on Thursday (5/12) and students 3-5th grade will come in on Friday (5/13). Please help your child remember to have their book in their backpack and ready to be returned. I will be sending notices on Tuesday, May 17th to all students who still have books out. Please reach out to me if you know that your child has a missing book. You have the option of paying for a replacement with cash/check (please make is payable to Coyote Ridge ES) or with a credit card online. If you choose to pay online please email me so I can add the fine to Revtrak. I hope that you guys are geared up to have a great summer full of reading and relaxation!

Mrs. Hernandez, CRE Librarian

Coyote Ridge PTA (Parent-Teacher Association)

Parents, we invite you to join the CRE PTA! Along with spirit wear sales will be online membership and registration. I encourage ALL parents/guardians and staff to join, and we will continue to aim for 100% membership. Please remember that your membership dues go to support the school with items and programs that directly and positively impact your child's learning experience at CRE. Your membership also helps us have a collective voice in matters that impact education as a whole. Your membership in no way obligates you to any specific volunteer tasks or participation in meetings, but we'd love to have you! We proudly aim for 100% CRE staff participation, and we'd love to get as many families in as possible. Grandparents, neighbors, and community members are welcome members as well!

To join PTA and/or order CRE Spirit Wear, click on our CRE PTA website below and follow the steps. REMINDER: Membership dues go to support the school with programs directly impacting our students learning experience at CRE. Joining the PTA, in no way obligates you to specific volunteer events or participation in meeting. We would love to have you join, but there is NO obligation.
