Parr Patriot News

Home and School Connection, Week of May 26-28

A Note from Mrs. Buckels

Hello Parr Patriot Families,


We have made it to the end of the year! I know the last 10 weeks have been long and sometimes trying. We appreciate all your support through this school closure! We have been so grateful for the patience we have received as we have navigated these uncharted waters! You all have done a great job of supporting your students with their online learning.


We hope to see you on Wednesday and Thursday for supply pickup(see flyers below). 5th grade supply pickup will be tomorrow from 9:00-10:30. If you ordered a yearbook or spring pictures, they will be available at the supply pickup. We will not be able to keep supplies that are not picked up over the next few days. We will keep spring pictures and yearbooks until next year but will discard the desk supplies.


Report cards will be available in Skyward on Thursday.


Please be sure to follow CCISD on social media to stay up-to-date on the plans for next year.



Please stay safe this summer and keep reading and getting on Dreambox!
