A Message from the Principal

Well, it has finally arrived. The very last month of the 2021-2022 school year. What a year it has been! I am so thankful for all of the beautiful experiences and memories this year. With only 12.5 school days left after today, it is very tempting to begin a Summer mindset a little early. Please remember that we plan purposeful experiences for our students through the last day of school. It is important for your child to still be at school and on time everyday.

There is important information below including STAAR testing and End of Year Award Ceremonies. Please read everything carefully and let your child's teacher know if you have any questions.

Thank you for all of your continuous support this school year! I can't wait to see all of the amazing things we will accomplish together in the 2022-2023 school year!

Tardies, Leaving Early, and Dismissal Changes

  • We are having a substantial issue with tardies every morning. We have a very large group of students who are entering the building each day after 7:35am. Please remember that students should be in their classroom by the time the bell rings at 7:35am. Instruction begins right away and students need to be present from the beginning.
  • We are also having some problems with many students being picked up before 2:50pm each day. Unless your child has an appointment, we want them in class for the entire instructional day. It can be disruptive to your student and the rest of the class for someone to leave early.
  • If you need to change your student's dismissal plan, please either send a note with your student or call the front office. If you are calling to make a change, please make sure you call before 2:00pm.

Staff Shout Outs

  • To: Mrs. Felan- To the greatest teacher of all time, thank you! Because of you, my son has grown so much since he started pre-k. He comes home with all his new learnings, understands the importance of being responsible and respectful. Your creativeness on learning things is amazing, because he comes home and repeats it all! :) Any student who joins your class is extremely lucky and parents should know their child is in good hands. We are so grateful for you. Mrs. Felan is simply THE BEST! From: A Happy Mama
