6th Grade Adventure Camp Information
6th Grade Adventure Camp is quickly approaching on October 4-6. If you indicated interest in your child attending, forms have been sent home to you for completion. If you would like for your 6th grade student to attend and have not registered, please contact Mr. Keisler as soon as possible.
Payments can be made using the following link, or by check/cash. Payment is due September 20. If you are in need of financial assistance, please reach out to Austin Keisler, Fidel Lozano, or Beth Craighead.
For the 2021-2022 school year, students enrolled in Wylie ISD will be eligible to receive a free healthy meal every day at school. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals; however, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued extended waivers that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
Due to the Nation’s labor and supply shortages, menu changes may occur often. We will do our best to provide notice of menu changes as we receive notice from our vendors.
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessments
5th grade - math, reading and science
6th grade - math and reading
Children learn better and faster when teachers have a clear picture of what each student knows and is ready to learn next. MAP Growth is a computer adaptive test. If your child answers a question correctly, the next question is more challenging. If they answer incorrectly, the next one is easier. This type of assessment challenges top performers without overwhelming students whose skills are below grade level. Results will be sent home to all families in the next few weeks.

Bus Transportation Information
A few important updates and reminders for the new year:
Wylie ISD uses “Here Comes the Bus,” which can be found through the district’s app (can also be downloaded on its own). Here Comes the Bus is how the Transportation department communicates if a bus is running late. More information about Here Comes the Bus can be found on the Transportation webpage.
