Important information for the 2nd 9 weeks grading period:
Parents, If you would like to make a change to the learning option for your child(ren) for the 2nd grading period--from CFISD Connect to On-Campus or from On-Campus to CFISD Connect--the selection window will be open between Monday, September 28 and Sunday, October 4. This change will be effective November 9 for elementary students. You will receive a follow-up email on Monday, September 28, with instructions on how to make the change. If your child is continuing with the same learning option for the 2nd grading period, then no action is required. With the anticipated increase of students selecting face to face at Keith, your child's homeroom teacher could change. We will make every effort to keep changes at a minimum for a smooth transition for staff and students. Please know that the safety of our students and our staff is a top priority
Students' academic progress is formally provided mid-way through each of the 9 week grading periods. For grades 2nd-5th, parents will electronically access progress reports on October 9th through the "Home Access Center" (HAC). For PK, Kinder and 1st, this will look different as the district does not house the progress reports for the primary grades in HAC. On October 9th, the teachers will send home the progress reports for their face to face learners. Teachers will email a copy of the progress report to parents for all CFISD Connect students.
Keith parents are awesome! Your collaboration and support of our new health and safety protocols is evident by seeing our Cougars "mask-up" consistently. We couldn't do this without you.

The Giant Pumpkin Weight Contest!
Thank you Boutwell Team for donating a huge pumpkin to Keith Elementary! Students will have an opportunity to guess the weight of the pumpkin during their lunch time in October. The giant pumpkin will be displayed on the stage and students will pay $1 to guess the weight. We will have the contest from October 5-28. We will announce the winner on the 29th and a parent will be notified to pick up your pumpkin on October 30th!

Credit by Exam Information
Students in grades K-5 will have four opportunities during the school year to use “credit-by-exam” to accelerate to another grade level. Students will only have one opportunity to test for each grade level considered.
To apply to take the test to skip kindergarten, a student must be 5 by September 1, and registered in a CFISD school. To apply to take the test to skip grade 1, a student must be 6 by September 1, and enrolled in a CFISD school.
Students who earn scores of 80% or better on each component of the credit-by-exam will qualify to advance one grade. Only one grade level may be “skipped” each year. No retests will be given.
If you are interested in getting more information about credit-by-exam, please contact Nicole.Carroll@cfisd.net
