What We Are Learning This Week

Language Arts: This week, we will be reading The Three Little Javelinas by Susan Lowell. We will be learning about folktales, morals in a story, comparing versions of the same story and we will continue our study on nonfiction texts. This week in spelling, we will look at words with prefixes mis- and mid-. We will keep our words for two weeks. Our LAST spelling test will be on Friday, May 27th!

Social Studies: We will continue our unit on financial literacy.

Math: This week we will focus on finding the area of shapes. Students will use cubes to measure area in square units. Along with that, they will also practice telling time to the nearest minute.

Science: This week students will pick a topic about the solar system, research their question, and create a presentation to share their findings.

CISD Night at the Ballpark!

NEW FOR 2016!!

All tickets purchased through this offer will receive an exclusive Coppell Cowboys Rangers cap. Staff, students, family, and friends can purchase additional Upper Reserved tickets ($15 students and $20 adults) through their campus.

  • $3.00 for every ticket purchased through the campus will be donated to the CISD Education Foundation.

  • There will be only one selection for seating-Upper Reserved for $15/$20 for all of CISD. Each campus will still be grouped together. We are doing this to create a larger district presence at the ballpark.

  • If any family wants to sit in another section, they will need to purchase their tickets directly from the Texas Rangers and must mention that they are with CISD. *1) In order to receive the CISD discount, the tickets must be purchased prior to the game and not at the ticket window and 2) in order for $3.00 to be donated to the Education Foundation, they must mention they are with CISD. (Seating chart is available at

  • All checks should be made out to the campus PTO.
