Boosterthon Update

Clearly "THANK YOU" does not do your overwhelming support justice. Over the next few weeks please pay close attention to The Cub Hub to see spotlights regarding what this will mean for the campus and the kids.


I will be indeed running a half marathon (in costume - a breathable one - but a costume nonetheless) in and around the school to celebrate our amazing final totals on Thursday, May 5, 2022.


THANK YOU!

2021-2022 Family Survey

Dear Families,


Our district values your feedback! We are currently surveying Austin ISD families in order to gain insight into your perception of our school and district effectiveness. To ensure we continue to provide high-quality, rigorous learning experiences that meet the needs of our learners and prepare them for college and career, we need your feedback. We want to know what you think.


To administer these surveys, we have partnered with Panorama Education to conduct our 2022 Family Survey. Panorama safeguards your privacy, keeping your responses confidential. The survey shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete and will be a valuable source of information for us as we work to make our schools and district as good as they can be.


You may complete the survey online between March 21, 2022 and April 8, 2022 using a computer, tablet, or smartphone by visiting the website


surveys.panoramaed.com/austinisd/family


We thank you in advance for your thoughtful responses. If you have any questions about the survey administration, please don’t hesitate to contact Michaele Pansza at 512-414-0040 or michaele.pansza@austinisd.org.


Thank you,
