Bobcat Families,

The birds are singing, there is a hint of green and many of the trees are in bloom! Can you tell I'm a warm weather person? Don't you just love Spring?

I will be returning to campus on Monday, April 22nd. I look forward to seeing everyone.

Thank you all for your continued support. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Bobcat Proud,

Kristen Eriksen

Book Drive April 15 - May 6

In honor of National Library Month, Keller ISD schools are collecting new and gently used books for our Summer Book Bus. Last year several Librarians drove our Book Bus around Keller ISD areas and allowed kids to get books for free over the summer and we will be doing the same thing this year! If you have any books that you would like to donate, please bring them to Mrs. Bennett. We will be collecting them through the end of April and first part of May.

Thank you!
