Buffalo Wild Wings Night

We will head over to BWW again THIS Thursday (February 18th) for some delicious grub! Please make sure you show them your Teammate card, so that our school gets a percentage of money that night! Please go to PeachJar Flyers and print a card off if you need one. OR just present it on your phone! See ya there!

Keep up to date!

One of the best ways of staying informed regularly is by subscribing to our Latest at Lee to keep yourself posted on school events. This informative communication tool will be sent out on a weekly basis by our PTO.

Mrs. Kastrounis has been wonderful in keeping everyone informed via Parent Link. She will now be sending monthly updates through Parent Link instead of daily or weekly updates. Checking this s'more and reading through the weekly newsletter will be an efficient way to keep up to date with information regarding Lee and our learners. And as always, feel free to shoot me an email if you ever have questions or need clarification on something.


If your learner has not brought headphones to school yet, please make sure they bring them by Monday. We do iStation and Front Row Math on the MacBooks that give off a lot of sound, so we want to make sure we are not distracting those around us. Thanks in advance!

PeachJar Flyers

Parents, please make sure you check out Lee's Peach Jar flyers for the latest in club and extracurricular offerings at Lee. Also, please be sure you stay informed with our incredible PTO with the Latest at Lee!

Having trouble with technology?

CISD has a parent guide to help you with logging into parent applications. Information can be found here. There is also a username and password reference sheet. Use or lose!

Just a reminder

Please make sure you are following Lee PTO for the Latest at Lee! Keep up to date on special events and activities that are always happening at Lee. Thank you!!!

Lost and Found

Our lost and found has been growing at a rapid pace! Please have your learner check the lost and found for any missing items before break. Also, make sure that your learner's coats, jackets, hats, etc have their names on them in sharpie, so that we can get items back to owners quickly should we find anything.

Valentine's Box Contest

We will be having a Valentine's box contest on Friday! More information will be coming home on Monday! There will be prizes given for different categories! Can't wait to see what the kids bring!

Thank you!

A big thanks to everyone who has turned in their Write-A-Check notes! Even if you cannot donate at this time, please make sure that you sign the paper and return it with your learner. Every class that has 100% of the forms turned back in gets a popcorn party! Fun!

So You Think You "Can" Dance- Year 2!

  • Wednesday (wear sunglasses) Use your special vision to spot kind behavior and stop bullying!
  • Thursday (bring a stuffed animal or bear) Give someone a bear hug or high five!
  • Friday (wear red or pink) Show some LOVE at Lee!
