August 17 is Meet the Teacher Day

Meet the Teacher Day is one of the most exciting days of the year for our students. We set this time aside so that you can bring your 2021-2022 Tigers to school to meet their new teachers, see where their classrooms are located, and store away school supplies.


Our Meet the Teacher Day Stations are shown in our "passport." Be sure to check off each station as you work your way through them!


School supplies purchased from Schoolkidz will be delivered to your child's homeroom classroom and be available for them to unpack on August 17. School supplies lists can be found on the West Cypress Hills Elementary website.


In advance of our Meet the Teacher Day, you were sent an email providing the name of your Tiger's homeroom teacher.


Because our kindergarten students usually need a little extra time to look around and unpack their supplies, kindergarten teachers will provide a specific time in their welcome email for you to arrive on Meet the Teacher Day, which will be sometime between 9 and 11 am.


Our Meet the Teacher Day Schedule is:


Kindergarten: Your Scheduled Arrival Time will be included in an email from your teacher and will be sometime between 9:00 am and 11:00 am.


12:30 pm until 1:15 pm................1st Grade and 3rd Grade

1:30 pm until 2:15 pm.................2nd Grade and 4th Grade

2:30 pm until 3:15 pm.................5th Grade

Lake Travis Education Foundation Kinder Club

The Lake Travis Education Foundation (LTEF) Kinder Club Car Parade and Kinder Club event scheduled for Sunday, August 15, had to be canceled due to the thunderstorms. As a result, representatives from the LTEF will be here in the Kindergarten neighborhood today, Tuesday, August 17, to deliver the t-shirts and goody bags that our kinder families would have, otherwise, received Sunday.


Be sure to see our LTEF representatives in the Kindergarten classroom area. It may not be the parade that they'd planned, but it will still be fun and delightful.
