Literati Book Fair

Our Fall Book Fair is November 14-18 during the day for students and November 16 from 3:00pm-7:00pm for families.

All classes will have a quick 15 minute viewing time early in the week so children can start selecting things they like and talking about money at home. All students will receive a book fair flyer during their library visit over the next two weeks. Students are allowed to purchase books at the book fair all week long!

A virtual Book E-Fair will be happening at the same time as our in person Book Fair for families who would prefer to shop online. https://efairs.literati.com/?school=susie-t-fuentes-elem-school-kyle-tx

Feel free to also check to see if you child's teacher has a classroom wishlist!

Student ID Badges

Almost all students now have a student ID. Badges are to be worn at all times.

Bus riders have 2 - one stays on the backpack and one stays on the child at school. Badges should not leave school, but please make sure your child returns with the badge if s/he accidentally takes it home.

If a child needs to replace the badge, the cost is $5.

Reminder Text Messages

Never worry about missing an email. You can get text messages for updates and reminders now from Fuentes by joining our Remind text group.

Simply text the message - @fuentesfam - to 81010. You will then receive text messages from us - so much easier and faster to receive than emails.

Fine Arts Classes are Back!

Our fall weekly fine arts focus classes have begun, and clearly, kids are excited! Students are participating in dance, theatre, mindful movement, and more to learn about opportunities in fine arts for middle school and beyond. If you have experience in fine arts you would like to share with our students, please fill out this volunteer form: https://forms.gle/J9PJkmUduhNCYBiW7
