KHES Climate Survey ~ we value your feedback!

Keller ISD launched its annual Campus Climate Surveys through K12 Insight on Thursday, March 5. All families should have received an email from Dr. Reid with the survey link. These surveys provide valuable data regarding the performance and perception of Keller Harvel. Typically about 11% - 12% of our families participate in these types of surveys. The more responses we receive, the clearer the picture will be regarding our specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. Everyone will have through Sunday, March 22, to complete the survey.

PTA News

McDonald's Night Spirit Night

KHES families purchased 1,064 cookies at McDonald's Spirit and helped raise $500! Thank you everyone for supporting Keller-Harvel Elementary PTA. BTW...Just noticed this but I think the McDonald's marquee actually says Keller Hapvel! I'm hoping my camera didn't pick up the rest of the "R". :)


The next PTA Spirit Night will be at Spring Creek BBQ on April 9th.
