Closed Campus to Lunch Visitors February 11th-12th Due to STAAR Mock Testing

Principal's Message

This week our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will take a district STAAR Mock test in Reading or Writing. We are closing our campus to visitors during all lunch times on the dates listed below.

Tuesday, February 12th

4th Grade Writing

Wednesday, February 13th

5th Grade Reading

3rd Grade Reading Benchmark

If you need to drop off your child’s lunch in the office you may do so and we’ll make sure he/she receives it. We ask that all 3rd-5th grade students eat a nutritious dinner the night before testing, get a good night’s rest and eat a hearty breakfast at home or school. Thank you for your understanding and support. Best of luck to our Mighty Eagles!

PTA Meeting, School Board Member Presentation & Student Performance

Please join us for our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, February 11th at 6:00 p.m. Our CCISD School Board Representative, Mr. Jaime Arredondo, will join us to provide a presentation on the Texas Education Agency's "Lone Star Governance" and how our district is supporting students/outcomes and goals. Mr. Arredondo's hope is to involve our Los Encinos families in these outcomes as well. After his brief presentation we will enjoy a performance by our 1st and 3rd grade students.

Support Staff Appreciation Week

This week we would like to recognize our paraprofessionals and cafeteria staff for their dedication to our campus. They are such a joy to work with everyday and they are always willing to go the extra mile for our staff, students and families. We look forward to celebrating the hard work of our paraprofessionals, cafeteria, and custodial staff.
