A Note From Mrs. Garrison

Thank you to all the families, friends and neighbors who made our 10th annual Fun Run our most successful one yet! This year we surpassed our goal by over $10,000! THANK YOU for your support!

This Friday, February 28th will be a busy, fun-filled day. We hope you will join us for Doughnuts with Divas from 7:15 to 8:00 am. We will celebrate Go Texan Day in conjunction with our Kindergarten Rodeo festivities that morning. Dress in your favorite western wear. Friday is also Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. A quick thank you to these special people would be deeply appreciated!

Car line

In an effort to keep all of our students safe during morning car rider line, we would like to make some small adjustments to drop-off procedures. In the morning, we have students being dropped off for Choir and Powell Patrol. The Choir and Powell Patrol parents often get stuck behind other cars waiting in the regular car line. Starting Tuesday, if you arrive before 7:30 and will be waiting with your child in the regular car line, do not pull up past the stop sign at the end of the porch. This will allow students arriving for Choir and Powell Patrol to be dropped off safely as their parents can pull up to the front of the school. When car line begins moving at 7:30, please stay in line and one of our Powell Patrol helpers will open the car door for your child. If you must park in order to get your child out, wait for the car line to stop before walking your child across the line of traffic.

Pre K for the 2020-2021 School Year

Conroe ISD will be expanding all current half-day prekindergarten programs to full day in the 2020-21 school year. Currently, Houser and Houston Elementary Schools are the only campuses to operate full-day prekindergarten programs. The expansion is in response to the House Bill 3 requirement that all prekindergarten programs operate as full-day programs. Registration for the 2020-21 school year will take place April 20-24. Eligibility determination and enrollment will take place at the elementary school to which the student is zoned. Please visit www.conroeisd.net/ci/early-childhood/ for more information.
