Staff Appreciation Days

We look forward to celebrating our upcoming Staff Appreciation Days on each Monday in April. Each Monday we will celebrate a different decade. Feel free to participate by dressing up to match the fashion trends of that time. If you dress up, stop by Sally's office for a drawing ticket. You may also earn tickets by participating in our guessing games each week. You will guess the names of popular tv shows from each decade. Take a moment to read the fun trivia that will be posted on each table in the lounge--some top ten lists.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone for your support at Rocket Fest! It was a super successful evening! PTO should be in contact with you soon to let you know which family bid on your item(s).

Staffing for Next Year

I look forward to updating you this week on staffing changes.


If you are certain that you are not returning, please complete your resignation/retirement online with Human Resources. We want to be able to hire top quality staff; however, we are unable to submit recommendations or transfers to fill a position if the employee has not officially resigned or retired. I appreciate everyone who has confided in me their future plans as it really helps us to prepare for next year. I know our staff is anxious to know their placements for next year.

CFISD Bond Election

The district is sharing weekly videos and posts on social media to keep the community informed about the upcoming bond election. If you live in CFISD, you are able to vote. Early voting will take place at Juergen's Hall from April 22-30 (7 am to 7 pm, except for Sunday, April 28- 1 to 6 pm).
