Monday, February 7th

6:30 p.m.

Celina Middle School Cafeteria

Attention 5th Grade parents! Please make every effort to attend the parent information meeting for incoming 6th grade students. Celina Middle School Principal Mrs. Briscoe will discuss course selections and other important registration information for the 2022-2023 school year. Parents will receive course selection papers to take home to review with their children, and then those papers will need to be returned to O'Dell Elementary.

CISD Book drive

January 24th - February 4th

We are collecting gently used books for students of all ages, which will benefit children in Celina ISD schools. Students wanting to donate books can give them to their homeroom teachers.

The top three classes who bring in the most books will win a prize!

clothes needed for Nurse Baker's clinic

Spills and accidents sometimes occur at school, especially with our younger students. Nurse Baker keeps extra clothing in her office for students when these incidents occur, but her supplies are running low. Currently the clinic needs sweatpants with elastic waists in youth sizes for girls and boys.

Donated items must be new and unused and can be brought to the front office. Also, if your child has borrowed items from the clinic, please return the used items (cleaned!) to Nurse Baker.

Reminder About Early Pick Up at the End of the Day

Parents wanting to pick up their children early from school must do so prior to 3:00 p.m. Parents arriving after 3:00 p.m. will need to use the carpool line.
