School Supply Lists

If you haven't gotten your supplies, here is the list for each grade level!

Teacher Phone Calls

Your child's classroom teacher will be calling to say 'hello' on Friday, August 12th between 2:00-3:30. If you don't receive a call by 3:30, please contact the front office to finalize your registration.

Meet the Teacher

Join us on Monday, August 15th from 5:00-6:30 to meet your teacher(s), drop off school supplies, and receive information about this year. Kona Ice will be here too!

First Day of School Procedures

Wednesday, August 17th is our First Day of School! Doors will open at 7:20 and our day begins at 7:40. To ensure that we maintain a safe and secure atmosphere on our campus, we will limit entrances where visitors can enter, and these entrances will be manned by campus staff.

Families will be able to enter through the front and back doors on the first day only. If you will be walking your student in, you will need to park in one of the parking spaces in our parking lot. If the lot is full, please find a spot on a curb that doesn't block any of our neighbor's driveways.

After the first day of school, parents will be able to walk their students to class after checking in at the office on Thursday and Friday only. Monday, August 22nd marks our "independence day", and all students will walk to class on their own.


As we prepare to start the new school year, a new communication platform is now in place for our school – and all Northwest ISD schools – to communicate with our families! ParentSquare allows families to set how they’d like to receive communication from schools and teachers, and it helps reduce the amount of messages you receive.

An invitation email was recently sent to all Northwest ISD families, but if you didn’t activate your account that way, don’t worry – you’ll continue to receive email and text messages from our school. When you get one of these messages, you can click the link and create your account that way. It will use the same email address the message was sent to. We look forward to sharing what’s happening in our school with all our families!
