Florence Update

February 12, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

We began this week with a great performance from our first grade students. We want to extend a very special thank you to all the parents and volunteers that helped to make it such a wonderful experience. With a lot of great learning and teaching in the middle, we ended the week with our annual Valentine Parties. It was a great time to celebrate friendship, caring, and kindness...and have a little fun!

Keep in mind that it is a three day weekend for students. Hope you have a great Valentine's Day!



From the Florence Elementary Library - Check it out the innovative tools and processes being implemented in Keller ISD!!!

Using Devices to Search for Books - Ann Lallande

Students use the new Library automation system, Destiny, to search for books, check their accounts, and read eBooks. We have devices in the library that the students can use to search. Using devices to search allows them to walk around and have the information at their fingertips.

Your student can log in to Keller ISD’s KCloud to access Destiny and other FES and KISD digital resources. I have taught many lessons to help them with this. If they do not remember their login, please stop by the library, call or email ann.lallande@kellerisd.net and I will give you the login information.

You can also access Destiny, the library automation system, by going to:

Search the catalog, read eBooks, go to databases. Students can login to view what they have checked out.
