CFES Travel Plan for Parents

Destination Excellence

Week of October 19th

Happy Tuesday CFES Community,

The Cougars are busy raising money for our school and determined to get me to kiss a pig! The kids are having such a great time teasing me and Ms. Killam about this and we are picking out our lipstick and getting ready because we know that anytime this community sets a goal- they work hard to reach it.

Parents, I need some assistance. Please take a moment to review the guidelines below for bringing in birthday treats for your child. It is important that everyone follow the individually wrapped, store purchased guidelines to prevent anyone from wasting their time and money. It is always difficult to tell an excited parent and student that they can't share their special items.

It is my true pleasure to share this article that was published this weekend highlighting our amazing school. CFES Among Top Schools in Texas CFES continues to achieve great things academically while also teaching our students that having servant hearts and good character matter. One more testament to this outstanding community! Thank you!


Proud to be part of this team,

Sherri Trammell

Watch D.O.G.S Updates

After gathering feedback from Watch D.O.G.S. and staff we are making a few changes! Beginning November 1st, there will only be AM spots for Watch D.O.G.S. from 8:05 until your child’s lunch time. The volunteer application must have been processed and approved prior to signing up for a date. The district will email you a confirmation once approved. If you are not approved by the week prior, the slot will be removed and you will need to reschedule another day once you have received your approval confirmation. Thank you for being our Watch D.O.G.S. The revised schedule beginning November 1st is below. If you have any questions about the volunteer process, please contact Ms. Trevino at 281-357-3100 x2001
