Cyber Safety Week

The district has designated May 6th through May 10 as Cyber Safety Week. This will help our students to practice safe digital citizenship. Parents will be made aware of the event through e-news. A link is provided to Common Sense Media , a parent resource. The district has also provided a site for teachers with daily lessons. The website is: www.alvinisd.net/cybersafety . Please spend some time each day discussing the importance of cyber safety.

Bluebonnet and AR Awards

Many of our students are working really hard to earn Bluebonnet and AR awards. The cut off date for both of this year's programs will be Wednesday, May 15th. The guidelines for the Bluebonnet awards are as follows:


-students who read 5 books and pass the corresponding quiz will receive a certificate

-students who read 10 books and pass the corresponding quiz will receive a ribbon

-students who read 15 books and pass the corresponding quiz will receive a medal

-students who read 20 books and pass the corresponding quiz will receive a trophy


Second grade students and students in grades 3-5 who have earned at least 25 AR points will receive a medal.


Students in grades 3-5 who are successful in both programs will receive an award for one program and an additional certificate for the other.


Thanks for your support,
