Appointments are Important

If you need to see Mr. Jackson or myself, please call first. Most days we are in the classrooms working with students and teachers and other days we may be in meetings with teachers. We certainly do not want you to make a trip to the school and not be able to see us.

K-5 Weekly Homework for this Semester

Students should be using our online reading program (Amplify Reading) and Math program (ST Math) at least 15 minutes each night. Both of these programs will help fill in any gaps students may have in their learning.

Free Meals For All Spring ISD Students During 2022-2023 School Year

  • Child Nutrition provides meals at no charge at many Spring ISD schools. This is made possible through the Community Eligibility Provision. All schools already serve breakfast for free but with the expansion of CEP, students at all campuses will also get free lunch, regardless of income. As it is a brand new campus, Momentum High School does not qualify for CEP this year. We encourage families attending Momentum High School to apply for the Free and Reduced Meals Program:

    Spring ISD requests parents of students attending these schools complete the Household Income Survey.

    For more information, please call 281-891-6445.
