Water Watcher Tags

Keller ISD is excited to partner with the City of Keller, Keller Fire Department, the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce, and Cook Children’s Hospital for Swim Safe, a summer-long campaign to promote swimming pool safety.


Cook Children’s has graciously agreed to donate Water Watcher Tags for all District Kindergarten students. These tags are meant to be worn by an adult designated to watch children in and around a pool, as many child drownings are silent and take place when an adult is nearby but not paying attention to the water.


All families are invited to attend the Swim Safe kick-off event, Back to Pool, scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at the Keller ISD Natatorium. Families will hear from speakers about the importance of staying safe in and around the water, get to witness a simulated drowning demonstration, and visit interactive safety stations for a chance to win prizes. There will also be a bounce house, food trucks, and a ton of great water safety information from local vendors.

KHES Casey’s Kids Coin Drive

Keller-Harvel is having a coin drive to raise money for Casey’s Kids. Each grade level will have a container in the front foyer where coins will be collected. The grade level with the highest total will win spirit sticks. The coin drive will end on May 15th.

Casey's Kids Program

We hope you will join us on May 16th for our 18th annual Casey's Kids 5K Fun Run/ Walk. The Fun Run welcomes participants of all ages and is the primary source of funds for the Casey's Kids Program. This program provides assistance to Keller ISD students in need. Currently over 25% of our students are economically disadvantaged. These funds help to provide for things like school supplies, clothing and even food.
