A Note from the Principal

Thank you!

Boosterthon is this week! We are so excited about bringing this event back to Postma. Last year, we had a fun Boosterthon dance, but this year we are bringing back our Postma Fun Run! We can't wait! Every student at Postma that attends school on Friday, February 25th, will receive a free Boosterthon Fun Run t-shirt.

Although we haven't reached our goal of $25,000 yet, we are confident that we will reach our goal. At Postma, we believe in setting attainable goals and working hard to make goals happen. We are doing just that! We truly appreciate you taking a moment to register your Puma and sharing your child's link with your friends and family.

Thank you, Postma community! We are grateful for you! Everything we do is possible because we have families and a community that rallies around us in times of crisis and in times of celebration. Boosterthon is a time to CELEBRATE!

Parents - Important Reminders!

Please send district issued student computers to school, fully charged, each day.

Thank you for your assistance.

Your Puma's education is so important to us!

Learning begins at 8:40 daily. When your student arrives after 8:40, he/she often misses the lesson for the day in their first hour instructional content. It's important for students to arrive on time each day. Thank you for your help!

If at all possible, please refrain from picking up your child early.

When your student leaves early, he/she is missing valuable instruction time.

When students are at Postma, their brains are busy!

A Message from the Cafeteria

Breakfast is available to all students until 8:40 am. If your student arrives after 8:40 am, please provide them breakfast prior to arriving to school. The cafeteria needs two (2) hours to convert from breakfast to lunch. The only exception to this will be district buses arriving late to Postma.

CFISD Transportation is accepting application for bus drivers. Please consider driving a bus! It's a great way to support our schools and be a part of our amazing school district.

Bus Driver Appreciation is Tuesday, February 22, 2022.

We love our bus drivers! Please take a moment to tell your child's bus driver thank you for being a bus driver for our community!

Postma Parent and Student Handbook

Please take a moment to review the Parent and Student Handbook:

Reminder: Friday is Postma Spirit Day!

Postma families,

Please help your child wear a spirit shirt on Friday each week. Barstow's Brigade and McClosky's Marvels earn points for their teams when 80% of a student's homeroom class wears their Postma spirit shirt. It's fun and builds school spirit! Game On, Pumas!

Don't forget your "2's" on 2-22-22!
