Planning for Next Year

Jump Rope For Heart is wrapping! All donations need to be turned in by this Friday, March 10th. It’s not too late to contribute to our school’s efforts to fight the No. 1 killer of Americans: heart disease. Visit to join our school team. We are so proud of our Lakeside Longhorns for taking the challenge and helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association. Thank you for your support!

CISD School Health Advisory Committee Information

Mark Your Calendars 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade parents!

On March 21st, CISD will be hosting a screening of the documentary called SCREENAGERS, Growing Up in the Digital Age.

This film dives deep into how technology impacts kids’ development and the challenges of parenting in the digital world. We live in a world where parents must compete with video games, texting addiction, and social media.

It begins at 6pm @CHS Auditorium. Following the movie, there will be a SKYPE session with Lisa Tabb, the film’s producer.
