Western Day - Friday, February 25

Parents,

We are very excited to continue our Western Day tradition of students gathering as a grade level to celebrate the rodeo with all of the dances they've learned.


Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate visitors on this day - including lunch visitors.


We will use the cafeteria to allow for enough space for each grade level during large group time, while lunches will be eaten in the gym.


We encourage students to dress up in western gear that day including boots and cowboy hats. As always, please refrain from sending any toy guns, holsters, spurs or nuisance items with your child to school. Thank you so much for your understanding.

Notes from the Nurse

Parents, if you are having lunch with your child and would like to see the School Nurse, please call to schedule an appointment first. Thank you.

Arnold will no longer be hosting their Incoming 6th grade Electives Showcase on February 24th. Arnold’s electives showcase will now be virtual and the link will be coming soon.

Counselors' Corner

As school counselors, we also can help with connecting to community resources. One community resource is the Houston Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank allows for us to serve as a liaison for a program called Backpack Buddies. We send home canned and nonperishable foods home weekly in a backpack. If you are in need of this program, please call us at (281)897-4470. Other resources include outside therapists, church ministries, school supplies, backpacks, etc. When in doubt, please call or email for any assistance. We look forward to working with you and your family.


March's Core Value is Cooperation!

The Birthday Marquee Is Back!

Make your child’s birthday extra special by having their name showcased on the Millsap Marquee located in the front of the school for everyone to see!


Birthday wishes will be changed out every Friday (unless otherwise noted) and displayed for a week for all to see & celebrate. There will 5 spots available each week for Millsap Birthday Wishes.


Due to limited availability, we suggest to reserve your child’s marquee spot ahead of your child’s birthday. If your child's Birthday week is filled, consider the week before or after. Does your child have a summer Birthday? Consider celebrating their name on the Marquee on their Half Birthday!


The cost is $15 for each Birthday Wish.

Important Reminders

  • Transportation changes should be made in writing by sending a letter which includes the name of the child, the teacher, the date, and the signature of the parent/guardian.


  • Only emergency changes should be made through email to the Millsap email address, or by fax. Transportation changes that are emailed to Millsap must include the student's name, teacher name, date of transportation change, and a copy of the parent's ID. Any transportation changes and/or pick-ups after 3:15 pm require approval from an administrator.


  • Please be aware that access into the building can be a slow process due to the check-in requirements. We encourage everyone to please plan at least 5-10 minutes to go through our check-in process. All adults will need to provide their driver’s license or legal identification card. There will be no exceptions. Even VIPS and other parents who come frequently will have to show their ID each time they enter the building.

Lost & Found

We have a growing 'lost and found' area. If your student has lost something, please remind them to look on the stage during their lunch time. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to claim their lost items. Thank you!
