Veteran's Day - We Salute You

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.

On this day, we honor all current and former members of the Armed Services. Our country’s greatness is built on the foundation of your courage and sacrifice.

Please Join us in a Salute to Our Veterans on Friday, November 11, at 10:00 AM at Woodforest Bank Stadium. Veterans in attendance will receive a Conroe ISD JROTC challenge coin as a small token of appreciation for their service.

This event will be livestreamed on the Conroe ISD YouTube channel.

Message from Ms. Hodge

Thank you so much for your family's support for the 4th - 2nd grade skating unit. It has been incredibly exciting to see our skaters grow in their confidence and abilities. Thanks to our helpful crew, our students' skate time has been maximized and we are seeing lots of students learn new skills! It looks like some kids will be adding skates to their wish list!

Lunch Sign-Up

Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are offering two options for lunch signups. You will have the opportunity to sign up to eat in the cafeteria with your child or outside in our gazebo/picnic table area. You will not be able to change locations after signup is complete. If you sign up to eat outside and it rains, you will be unable to move into the building due to limited seating. You may sign up for another day/time.

Each slot is available for two adults and the child you are eating lunch with..

Please see the schedule below for designated grade level lunch visitor’s days. Make sure that you sign up under the correct time slot for your child’s lunchtime. Each student may have a lunch visitor once every 3.5-week period. This ensures every parent has an opportunity to sign up. Remember to bring a valid id when you visit the building.

Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are asking all parents with small children to eat outside in the gazebo area.
