Campus Vision

At Kyle Elementary, we believe building relationships in a safe environment encourages student engagement, impacts campus morale, and inspires student achievement.

From Mrs. Lucita

It's hard to believe that we are in our last week of school! We have LOVED having our families back on campus! Field Day was AMAZING - Thank you Coach Cat and Coach B for an awesome time! Thank you to our families for your patience when BOTH raptor printers went down. We have many events this week. Please remember that all visitors need to have a valid ID to be on campus (we will still scan ID's even when the printer is down).


Last week to earn HOUSE Points! You can earn points by being a great Panther and following RAR around school (especially in the cafeteria)! Who will WIN this years HOUSE CUP?


This week all KES students will receive a "Flat Pantera" based off the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown.


  1. Take Flat Pantera with your on your summer adventures - on a road trip, vacation, playing at home, anything that you are doing
  2. Take a picture with Flat Stanley and let us know what you are doing. BONUS if you are reading or working on math facts!
  3. Send pictures to our KES Facebook page or email them to Mrs. Lucita at karen.lucita@hayscisd.net
We can't wait to see the adventures of our Panthers with Flat Pantera over the summer!



ALL student devices and library books are due NOW! We still have 202 library books out! Help us get to ZERO (Books were due May 19th). If your child cannot find their library book they have checked out, you can pay online for missing the book.

SMART TAGS (Campus ID's)

ALL KES Students need to have their ID on while on campus.


  • If your student is a bus rider, they will have their ID's attached to their back pack and will need their ID to enter the bus. Please make sure they bring their ID daily with them to school.
  • If your student does not ride a bus, they will keep their ID's at school. If an ID makes it home, please make sure they return it the next day.


If a student loses their ID, there will be a $5.00 replacement fee. Starting this year, ALL Hays CISD students will wear ID's while on campus.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and KES Houses

At KES we use a school wide House System. Each staff and student is a member of a House that represents a 7 Mindset and Character Trait. All new students and staff will learn which house they will join during the 1st week of school!


Each month we will focus on a Mindset and Character Trait.

September = Introduction and Review of 7 Mindsets
October = 100% Accountable
November = Attitude of Gratitude
December = Live to Give
January = Everything is Possible
February = Passion First
March = We are Connected
April = The Time is Now
May/June = Review 7 Mindsets


If you wish to purchase House shirts, please use the following link. All KES students and staff will receive a House shirt this year.
