Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 5th Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Carswell, room 404

Hi there! I am Jill Carswell. I will be teaching 5th grade Science and Social Studies this year at Lone Star Elementary. This will be my 2nd year in 5th grade, but my 20th year of teaching. I attended Stephen F. Austin University for both my teaching degree and my Masters of Education. My husband, Jon and I have been married for 16 years and have 3 kids. Emma- Freshman at Lake Creek High School, she plays in the band. Abby- 7th grader at Oak Hills Junior High, she is a cheerleader. Tucker- 3rd grader here at LSE, he loves swimming and being outside. If they don’t keep us busy enough, we also have 3 spoiled pets, 1 dog and 2 cats.

If I had plenty of money and wasn’t a teacher, I would own a Dairy Queen here in Montgomery. I worked at DQ through college.

I can’t wait to meet each of you!!

“Choose kindness and laugh often”

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
