First Grade News

Week ending February 22, 2013



Sick Children

We have had many sick students in 1st grade this past week. Parents, if your child is running a fever of 100 or higher, please keep him/her home until he/she is fever free for 24 hours without having to take tylenol or motrin. We have cleaned and sanitized everything, so hopefully everyone will be 100% next week.

Community Health Fair

The medical students at Texas A&M University are holding the 2nd Annual Community Health Fair this Saturday, February 23rd from 8am-3pm at the Texas Health Science Center on Hwy 47.

No Toys

Please do NOT allow your child to bring toys to school. They are becoming a huge distraction.


School Start Time

A lot of children have been arriving at school after our morning assembly. The first bell rings at 7:55am and school begins at 8:00am. The clocks at school are about 3 minutes faster than the time shown on cellular phones. Please set your clocks accordingly to avoid your child missing the important start to our school day.

Car Rider Info

Please remember that the car rider line forms off of Buffington Avenue and Hill Street. There have been some people that are turning in off of FM 149w. If you are unfamiliar with the car rider route, please ask for more information at the office.

Also, if your child is a car rider after school, remember that you must have your car rider tag displayed in your vehicle. Please DO NOT remove it until your has been placed in your car. With us not using the bull horn outside, the teachers at the stations do not know which kids belong at which poles and some of the teachers do not know the parents/vehicles. Thanks for your help in this matter.
