Let’s Glow Crazy Dance Party!!
Join us for Millsap’s Let’s Glow Crazy Dance Party on Friday, May 3rd, 2019 from 6:00 -8:00 pm.
You won’t want to miss out! We will have a D.J. playing your favorite tunes and there will be plenty of room for dancing the night away as well as a silent auction that will include amazing teacher experiences.
Delicious meals will be served by Fajita Pete’s and the yummy Hugs & Donuts will be serving desert.
All proceeds from the dance and silent auction will go to Millsap for things like teacher education, field trips, 5th grade day and field day.
Our value this month is Hope. Hope is believing that something good can come out of something bad. Albert Einstein once said, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to never stop questioning.” Einstein was one of the smartest people to ever live. He was constantly trying to answer his own questions about why things are the way they are and how the world works. He encouraged us to never stop asking questions. Asking questions helps you to learn and learning keeps your mind sharp. See if you can ask at least 10 questions today to learn something new.
Credit-By-Exam Notice to Parents
The State Board of Education has established procedures to allow elementary students to “skip” one grade level by taking a series of exams which assess the Texas Essential Knowledge/Skills (TEKS) established for that grade level. Parents interested in having their children screened for credit-by-exam should contact their school counselor, Cindy Lopez at (281) 517-6036 by May 24th.

Kindergarten Program Details
Greetings, Kindergarten families! Here are some details about our upcoming program.
Friday, May 10th at 9:30 am.
Your student and you! :-)
Our program is called "E-I-E-I Oops!" - a show about a farm where the cow won't moo!
If your child has a speaking role, they have been assigned a specific costume. Otherwise, they may choose one of the following five costume options. I have provided examples, but you do not have to strictly adhere to these ideas:
Farmer – (example) plaid shirt, jeans, and boots
Pig – (example) pink shirt, pants, nose, ears, tail
Sheep – (example) white shirt, pants, cotton balls, ears
Chick – (example) yellow shirt, feathers, yellow tutu, pants, beak (students must be able to sing)
Mule/Horse – (example) brown shirt, pants, mane, ears, tail
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you plan to video the program and are willing to share a copy with me, please let me know!

NOTES FROM OUR NURSE
ALL Over-the-Counter meds must be new and unopened.
Medication is to be delivered and picked up by a parent or guardian and brought to the clinic in the original container labeled with child's name, name of the medication and directions for the time and dosage. Physician's name must be on prescription medication. Students may not carry medications - including cough drops.
Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home from School
A sick child who is unable to participate in school in a meaningful way should be kept home to rest and recover until symptoms resolve. Keeping a sick child home also protects other children, school staff, and visiting community members from contracting an illness that can be spread from person to person.Please be aware of the following guidelines for school attendance.
- Fever: A child should remain home with fever greater than 100° F and should only return after he/she has been fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin.
- Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and/or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom free for 24 hours.
- Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Following a diagnosis of pink eye, a child may return to school 24 hours after the first dose of prescribed medication has been administered.
If you take your child to a healthcare provider for an illness, please be sure to request a written letter stating when your child may return to school.
