-Teachers, please make sure to turn in any money that comes back to you from our Journey Picture money fundraiser every day. Deadline for our families is on the 8th.

- Faculty & staff, for the month of February, if it is 50 degrees or below by 5:30 AM, you may wear jeans.


-- Please start thinking of the Young Masters’ Art Show. The show is the last week of March, and usually each teacher can submit four or five pieces of art. The NEISD art page, under elementary art has some great art lessons you may want to use. (Taken from J. Perez's email dated on 1/2/16). REPEAT
