Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 3rd Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Upton, room 304

My name is Dana Upton. I am SO excited to be your 3rd grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. This will be my 13th year teaching and my 1st year at Lone Star Elementary. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Sam Houston State University. I also attained a certification to teach English as a Second Language and Gift and Talented Learners. I believe communication between school and home are very important to me. My husband Lonnie and I have six amazing children Cody, Leia, Gage, Lane, Brock, and Jack. We love to spend time outdoors camping, fishing, and hunting with our children. We are going to have a great school year together!

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
