From the Principal:
We hope that everyone had a great weekend and remembered to "Fall Back" on Sunday morning.
We have a food drive going on now to benefit Interfaith of The Woodlands. Progress reports will be available at the end of this week. Tuesday, November 8th is a student holiday. And we have nine days left until Thanksgiving break.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
And congratulations to the World Series Champions - Houston Astros!

Student Breakfast Procedures
Our student handbook has been updated regarding outside food and drinks. Students are not allowed to bring these items into the classroom; it must be consumed in the front office and disposed of there.
Guidance lessons will be held next week through library classes. We will be discussing this month’s Colossal Cobra trait of Gratitude, and we will be making placemats for Meals on Wheels!

Gifted and Talented Updates
Nurse Kendall's Updates
State law requires that schools must screen students for abnormal spinal curvature in accordance with the following schedule: Girls will be screened two times, once at age 10 (or fall semester of grade 5) and again at age 12(or fall semester of grade 7).
We will be conducting spinal screening for 5th grade girls November 29 - Dec 1, 2022 during PE time. I realize the 5th field trips will be going on at the same time but we will work around it. We will send more information as the date approaches.
Illness at School
If your child is sent home from school with a fever (100 degrees or above), they need to stay home the next day. School policy is that students must be fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medications before returning to school. This is to prevent others from getting sick. If your child is ill, please keep them at home.

As we finish our focus on Digital Citizenship, you can continue to find good resources to discuss all topics of digital citizenship- online safety, bullying, cell phone use, information about apps, here at this link.
Students in Mr. Hunt’s class are working on their realistic drawing skills and are learning about artist Chuck Close as they work on creating a work of art using the grid method.
Students in Mrs. Ferguson's class are learning about the world of ceramic arts and creating their own creative mug. Their clay project will be a functional work of art!
Thirteen Collins Chorale members participated in the Conroe ISD Intermediate School Solo Competition! All of them received a First Division Rating. Ms. Brill and Collins Intermediate are very proud of their effort.
