Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 2nd Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Kuykendall, room 208

Hello! My name is Candis Kuykendall and I have been teaching at Lone Star since the 2008-2009 school year. Last summer I got married in Estes Park, Colorado. My husband and I love dogs. We have 2 shelter mutts, Honey and Sadie, and a Lab named Darla. I would love to eventually open up a rescue for senior pups.

I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2007, "Eat Em' Up Kats!" I love my job and wouldn't trade it for anything. I take pride in making sure my students have a safe and successful experience in the classroom!
Mrs. Griffith and I will be switching classes this year! She will have your child for Language Arts/Social Studies and I will have your child for Math/Science. We are so excited to be partnering together and sharing the role in your child's success. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact one of us and we will be happy to help. I can't wait to meet you all!

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
