Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 5th Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Felts, room 409

My name is Erica Felts and I am thrilled to be teaching math and science in this wonderful school and community. This is my fourth year at Lone Star and my second in fifth grade. I can’t wait to meet the new faces and see a few that are familiar from our third grade days! We are going to have a wonderful year!

After transferring from Dallas Baptist University, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Go Bearkats! I also have an Associate’s Degree in Psychology from Tyler Junior College. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. It is my mission to instill a love for learning and thirst for knowledge in my students.

My husband and I live in Montgomery. James manages a ranch, so we spend a lot of our time around hay and cattle! We have one pet cow, Tinker Bell, whom we’ve bottle fed since last year’s ice storm. I was born in Tyler, Texas and raised in the nearby town of Whitehouse. I love to travel, bake, sing-along at concerts, and cheer on my favorite sports teams!

Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
