weEngage Reading

On Friday, 1st grade teacher Becky Landry and 3rd grade teacher C.J. Hood were both completely surprised by the sound of the drum line in the hallways along with members of the Keller ISD Foundation Board, Superintendent Randy Reid, KISD Board Members Jim Stitt and Ruthie Keyes, and other members of the KISD administrative team. Mrs. Landry and Ms. Hood were rewarded with $1,098.24 to help fund their grant, 'weEngage Reading". The money will be spent to help purchase resources for reading.

Congratulations to Mrs. Landry & Ms. Hood!

Saying Goodbye

I wanted to take a moment to share some news. Paraprofessional Tim Bush is taking a new path…he’s off to the beautiful country of Italy to play basketball! This is a wonderful opportunity for him to play the game he is so passionate about. Let’s all celebrate all that Mr. Bush has done for our students and staff. His last day came up quickly due to his new commitment so we had to say goodbye to him today.

Best of luck to you, Mr. Bush! We are so proud to have had the honor to work with you.

How Do You Make a Teacher Smile? CHOCOLATE!

Our teachers LOVE CHOCOLATE & Jean's Passes! If you would like to donate bags of miniature candies like Reese's, Twix, M&M's, etc. just drop them off in the front office. Mrs. Eriksen keeps a bucket of chocolate in her office everyday specifically to make the entire staff SMILE.

Thank you to for the donations so far!! We've seen many, many smiles!!

PTA News

Apex Fun Run news

We already know that we made our goal!!! The final counts will be coming soon but in the meantime, we are going to celebrate. Mrs. Eriksen is going to be DUCT TAPED to the wall in the main hallway on Thursday, December 17th starting at approximately 1:45 pm. Every student will get a piece of duct tape and once all 476 students have finished, she will be "dangling" from the wall. We can't wait to see her!

Box Tops

Please check all of your canned food items and boxes of food for the Box Tops for Education coupon. We will begin collecting box tops again in January.
