Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 3rd Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Bednarsky, room 305

Welcome to an awesome new school year! My name is Kathy Bednarsky and I am so thrilled to be your 3rd grade math and science teacher! I graduated from the University of Houston back in 1992, and I’ve been teaching ever since! I have taught grades 1 through 4. Family is very important to me so we enjoy spending lots of time together. My husband Kirk and I have 3 wonderful children: Kayla, Ryan, and Jake, as well as a son-in-law named Cord. But what’s even more fun than kids? Grandkids! We have 2 beautiful granddaughters named Ava and Adley. They definitely have my heart! In my free time I like to read, work out, and do practically anything outdoors. This summer I took an incredible cruise to the Caribbean, so this is a picture of me taken on the ship. As you can see, I’m pretending to use the shell as a phone, or maybe I’m even imagining that I can hear the ocean waves once again! Teaching is my passion and I love every one of my students like they are my own. Hurry up, first day of school! I can’t wait to meet you all!

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
