Student Safety Concerns

(For students being dropped off in the morning)

To ensure students are able to enter the building in a safe manner we are asking that you drop students off in the morning on the side closest to the building. Please don’t pull up near the school entrance and have students walk across the street to enter the building. We have had too many incidents and close calls and we want to ensure students are able to safely enter the building in the morning. Parents, please be sure you are adhering to the crossing guards directions and not parking in the no parking zones in the morning. Conroe ISD police may issue tickets if you are non-compliant.

Important Reminders


  • Instruction begins promptly at 8:50 a.m. and dismissal at 3:55 p.m.
  • All transportation changes should be sent to your child’s teacher in writing. If an unplanned change occurs, please notify the school before 3:15 p.m.
  • Please limit checking your son or daughter out early from school. They miss valuable instruction by leaving early.
  • All students who leave campus by car during dismissal will need to report to the car rider line.

Principal's Corner

Parents,

In April our 5th Grade students are testing on the 9th and 10th. Please don't schedule any doctor visits on these days. Our students have worked so hard to prepare for this test. We appreciate your attention to this matter.

5th Grade Curriculum Spotlight

5th grade science will continue studying different ecosystems all over the world. At the end of the month, we will begin our review for the STAAR test. In math, our 5th grade students will finish the geometry and financial literacy unit, and spend time reviewing all 5th grade content. We will focus on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals and fractions, with both numbers and models. In addition, we will spend time on understanding place value, locating numbers on coordinate planes, and the relationships between a table, equation, and graph. In social studies, students will learn about the Expansion of the United States and Economic Growth. We will end the month learning about WWI. In reading, students are preparing to take their STAAR test on April 10th. After STAAR, the students will be in book clubs and use their non fiction skills in Science and Social Studies text. The students will continue using Achieve 3000, which can also be used at home.

6th Grade Curriculum Spotlight

6th grade science will study the characteristics of organisms and how scientists classify them into domains and kingdoms. In math, students will find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes. Students will also find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths. In addition to this, students will represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. In social studies, students will learn about Africa and all of its regions as well as its culture, economics and many governments. In reading, the students are preparing to take their STAAR test in May. During the month of April students will review the concepts they have learned this school year. The students will continue using Achieve 3000, which can also be used at home.
