Bluebonnet Book Reports
The deadline for 3rd, 4th, 5th graders to turn in their 5 Bluebonnet Reports to Mrs. Underwood in the Library is Friday, February 3rd!
All 3rd-5th grade students have read their first Bluebonnet Book at school, but the other 4 can be read independently.
Students who participate will be invited to The Bluebonnet Party on Friday, March 3rd to enjoy blue snacks, complete bluebonnet crafts, and most importantly vote on the Bluebonnet winner for Fuentes Elementary!
*Don't forget: the Bluebonnet Reports and eBooks can be accessed through the Library Destiny page!*

Student ID Badges
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.
Families, I need to clarify the district policy about dropping off lunches. Please read the exact policy below. If you are dropping off an outside lunch, meaning a fast food meal, you must bring it during your child's lunch time and hand it directly to your child.
Hays CISD Campuses Closed to Meal Delivery Services
As part of enhanced safety at campuses, beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, all Hays CISD campuses will no longer accept deliveries from meal delivery services or restaurants for student lunches. And, campuses will no longer have drop-off tables for meals. Parents may still bring outside food for their children if they plan to deliver the meals directly to their children during the child’s designated lunch period. All guests are required to follow existing safety protocols and check in with an ID at the front office.
TELPAS is an assessment program for students in Texas public schools who are learning the English language. The letters in TELPAS stand for the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) developed TELPAS to meet state and federal requirements. Texas annually assesses the English language proficiency of students who have been identified as English learners (ELs) in four language domains—listening, speaking, reading, and writing. TELPAS evaluates the progress that each EL makes in becoming proficient in the use of academic English.
