Having the projects in the hallway was so powerful. THANK YOU to the entire Math committee for helping organize all of our math activities.

Healthy Attendance Competition graph

Toni Mucker is tracking our attendance and tardy data. She has made a bar graph chart in the front foyer. Please consider bringing your class to the front foyer to discuss the graph. Fun fact: 97% equates to having about 20 kids out. That's a whole class!

Copy Report

At the last principal's meeting, data was shared regarding the number of copies being used and the total cost to the district & campus. Our campus made 75,973 copies in the month of January. There were only three other elementary campuses that made fewer copies! Our campus was highlighted & congratulated so let's keep up the good work and continue to save even more paper.

Every network printer and copier is leased and costs our campus $782.23 a month. One way to save money is by using the copiers in either workroom. Is there a network printer that we can give back? Let me know your thoughts. Here is a list of the total copies printed for each copier -

C3 - 351

E5 - 65

F2 - 0

Computer Lab - 115

B2 - 295

Workroom - 34,267

Laminating room - 35,492

Office - 4,631

Library - 588

Secretary - 169

Jennifer will share your feedback at her next meeting Wednesday after school.

Sharing Time

Come on...you do amazing things! Email me a picture/video and a short description of something you would like to share.

Congratulations to Sandy!

I was asked to create a video of our TOY and wanted to share with you. I found an app called Cute Cut and was able to splice together a variety of clips. Now I did find out that I have to have my phone or iPad turned a certain way so you don't have to lay on your side to watch it!

Casey's Kids Fun Run Facts

Many of our parents are unsure what Casey's Kids is all about. Here are some facts about the race this year.
  • This race will be a true 5K. There will be Chip Time for the more competitive runners. Runners start at 7:30 & Walkers begin at 7:50
  • There will be a "Munchkin Mile" run for our youngest up and coming runners
  • Shuttle service from Bear Creek Intermediate School
  • Funds are distributed through our campus counselors as they become aware of needs.
  • A majority of the time, the families in need do NOT ask for help. Most often, contact is initiated by one of our counselors.
  • This program doesn't just serve our economically disadvantaged families. Some of our KISD families suffer from life changing events (divorce, death of a spouse, house fire, etc.) and need a hand from time to time.
  • This program is a one-time helping hand for students in need in KISD. ALL funds brought in are kept LOCALLY and serve only our Keller ISD families!
  • Please invite our families to join on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/CaseysKids5KFunRun
