Florence Update

April 1, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

We are really proud of our fourth graders! They worked very hard during the STAAR test and the rest of the school supported their efforts by being quiet and respectful. We ended the week with "Put a Cap on Diabetes" fun in preparation and support for the Diabetes walk tomorrow morning at Keller High School. Read more about this event below.

Keep in mind that Kindergarten Round-up is next week. We will be enrolling Kindergarteners and new to Florence First Graders for the 2016-2017 school year. Please check the upcoming events below and our website to continue to stay informed.

Have a great weekend!



Put a Cap on Diabetes! We raised $440.06. Thanks for your support!

School Quality Survey

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Everyone has a voice in in Keller ISD’s ongoing pursuit of educational excellence. Today, I am asking for candid feedback about your school. We want to hear your thoughts on critical school issues, including academic preparation, student support, parent engagement, diversity, school operations and accessibility of school leaders.

This survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. It will be open until April 12. Your answers will be confidential, so please answer honestly. Since we’ll only share the overall results, reports will not identify individuals. No one in the district will know if you participated unless you identify yourself in open-ended comments.

Engaging in an ongoing, two-way dialogue is critical to providing our students with the best possible education. After the survey closes, we will share the findings and specific steps we’re taking as a result of your feedback.

Please click here to participate. (Please do not forward this link. It will only work once. If you have any problems accessing your survey, please email ResearchK12E@k12insight.com.)

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.


Dr. Randy Reid
Superintendent, Keller ISD
