Standards Based Grading Updates
Klein ISD has made changes to the Standards Based Grading guidelines for this school year. Previously, progress was graded with a 1/2/3 score based on quarterly expectations. This year, students will be graded on a 1/2/3/4 scale and based on end of the year expectations. Families will see more 1s and 2s than were seen previously as the district has shifted towards assessing with end of the year expectations in mind.
More information on the district's Standards Based Grading policies can be found here: https://www.kleinisd.net/teaching-learning/curriculum-design-delivery/standards-based-grading

Also please be sure students arrive before the tardy bell rings so they do not miss out on important beginning-of-the-day instruction. Cafeteria doors close at 8:00am. If you would like for your child to have breakfast at school, please send them to school before 8:00am.
Dismissal ends each day at 3:45 PM sharp! Everyone knows the procedure and our students know their numbers, which makes it flow quicker. Therefore, our dismissal will end at 3:45PM sharp! Please make arrangements to have your child(ren) picked up before this time each day as we do not have the staff to supervise students after this time daily.

Birthday treats are encouraged to be purchased from our school cafeteria. No outside food and/or treats are allowed for birthday student and/or classmates.When it comes to birthday treats for students, our cafeteria managers need at least 2 weeks’ notice to ensure they have enough time to order the treats that you want for your student. This also gives time to the nurses to check the allergies of all the students in the class. If you have more questions about the process, please reach out to the campus kitchen for more information.

We also have more options for Birthday surprises. Please see our flyer below.

A message from our Specials teachers
Creating Routines for Emotional Safety
I want to thank you, parents, and legal guardians, for helping make the beginning of this school year a success. Your support and encouragement helped make your child’s transition from home to school a smoother one. Our teachers have also done a phenomenal job at creating a sense of belonging in their classrooms by focusing on building meaningful relationships with their students and putting routines in place. The brain is pattern-seeking, and when faced with new or unknown experiences, enters what is called the “Survival State” which can lead to behavior outbursts when not calmed. By creating routines and structure, we calm the Survival State, and help create important behavior patterns, especially during the first weeks of school. Routines are indeed the foundation to creating a School Family, a sense of belonging, and a loving and caring environment.
At home you can help reduce behavior outbursts, and experience smoother transitions for unwanted moments such as bath time and/or bedtime, by creating routines with visuals/images which helps your child predict what comes next, which in turn helps soothe the Survival State.
Please feel free to reach out me at email@example.com or by phone (832)484-5933.
