F.L. Moffett Primary

"Where the Adventure Begins" October 2021

FLM Parents & Guardians:

Our theme for FLM this year is "Where the Adventure Begins"! We chose this theme because we believe that as a primary campus, we have the responsibility of establishing the foundation and love of learning for our students at Center ISD. It is with great joy that we get to spend each day with your children, and we appreciate you allowing our faculty and staff the opportunity to help them learn and grow with us this year. Thank you for supporting us from home by reinforcing skills that focus on developing the social, emotional, and academic skills of our students. Learning is an adventure best traveled together, and we are looking forward to working with you to help our students reach their fullest potential!


Purple Up,

Brandy Bennefield, Principal

It's A Great Day....To Learn Something New!

Character Education:

Students are learning about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids in Power UP and counseling time with Mrs. Meeks.

Habits are things that we do without even noticing because they are ingrained in our daily routines. We want to focus on developing positive habits that help us become successful and happy!

So far this year, we have reviewed the following habits:

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive-You are in charge of you!

  • Habit 2: Begin with the End in MInd-Have a plan!

  • Habit 3: Put First Things First-Work first, and then play!

  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win!-Everyone can win when we work together!

Behavior Reward Incentive: 1st-9 Weeks Glow Party

Questions to Ask Your Child Instead of Asking: "How Was Your Day?"


  • What made you laugh today?
  • What is something you heard that surprised you?
  • Did you get better at anything today?
  • What was something that really made you think?
  • What was the best part of your day?
  • Tell me about a time when you felt proud of yourself?
  • What is something that didn't go as well as you would have liked today?
