A note from Mrs. Wilker

Hi Greyhound families and friends,


We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! This week's Gazette contains lots of information and activities for you to enjoy at home. Please continue with your remote learning and check-ins with your teachers. Everyone has been doing a great job, so keep up the good work!


Next week's edition of the Gazette will contain our plans for returning and picking up school and student items, as well as the end-of-year celebration plans for the last week of school (May 26-28).


Have a wonderful weekend!

REMOTE LEARNING ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES

Our CISD Curriculum and Instruction Department built a parent resource webpage to help support student learning. It contains optional supplemental activities that you may choose to explore. This site will be updated every Tuesday.

Online Textbooks

Your child has access to our online textbooks through the CISD SSO. When your child is logged in to the SSO, the textbooks will show up as icons (Stemscopes, Pearson, etc). Log in to the SSO by going to the CISD Homepage and clicking on CISD SSO in the top right hand corner. If your child does not know their log in information, please email your child's teacher for assistance.
