This is our last week before Thanksgiving Break. I have so much to be thankful for including being able to lead at Weiss Elementary. It warms my heart to see every child each morning and listen to them laugh, share their learning, and simply enjoying childhood. I am grateful for your trust in us to educate your child.

As the holidays arise, please stay safe and enjoy your families. When we return we will have 2 weeks before our students take ACP's. Let's enjoy this week of rest, fun, and food.

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 972-749-4000 and we will do our very best to provide you with the information you need.
