CFES Trail Guide for Parents

Blazing the trail to excellence

Week of October 12

Terrific Tuesday to all of our CFES Families.


Thank you for your wonderful participation in Walk To School Day last week. It was great to see our entire CFES community unite and a fantastic way to start a day.

Thank you for your support of our first CFES Cares of the school year. Please remember that tomorrow is the last day to send in any items you wish to donate. (Granola bars, individually wrapped candy, individually packaged chips, snacks and juice boxes.) Our students will be sorting the items and packing our special lunch sacks for less fortunate students on Thursday and Friday. I hope you all know the amazing, positive impact this will have for local TISD families in need.

There are so many great things happening daily on campus, with our TVS families, and as a community. After just five short weeks, teaching and learning are in full swing and our hands and hearts are making a difference. As always, the CFES Community continues to shine in all that we do!

Have a great week!


Sincerely,

Sherri Trammell

CFES Camp Director

TVS Student assignments and grades

Parents, as the quarter quickly comes to an end, please take a moment to review your child's current assignments and grades. It is important that all TVS students submit all required work by the deadlines. Per Grading Guidelines, teachers will be required to enter a zero for any assignment or test not submitted. We do not want this to impact your child's grade in this way. Please use this week to communicate with your teachers and assist your child if needed.

TVS Specials Report Cards

Please read this important information regarding grades for Specials (music, art, & PE) the first quarter. TVS Parent info regarding Specials grades
