Dear Parents,

We would like to invite you to your child’s Field Day on the dates above. Our Field Day is a day in which game stations are set up in the morning for your child to participate in.

To run smoothly, we do need volunteers to help run the stations. The stations are very easy to operate. The volunteer will pick a station to operate and when the kids complete the activity, the volunteer will mark the student’s scorecard. Helping the entire morning or an hour or two would be of great appreciation.

We also like to mention that your child’s behavior needs to be at their best for participating in our Field Day. If your child does not act appropriately before or during Field Day, there will be consequences for their behavior (Ex. Missing some of Field Day in the morning or afternoon). We want to make the day as enjoyable as possible for all our students.

Thank you again for your participation in your child’s Field Day.

5th Grade Appreciation - Yearbook Deadline April 20th

Parents, did you know that our campus is connected with various community resources to help you out in a time of need?


  • We have a Community Youth Service (CYS) Social Worker assigned to our campus to help parents find resources in our community.
  • Our school participates in the Houston Food Bank's Backpack Buddy Program. Students who qualify for Free and Reduced lunch program and need some extra food for the weekends, can receive a food pack on Fridays of non-perishable food items.

Leadership Academy

We are excited that next week our Leadership Academy students will participate in their graduation. We look forward to sharing pictures on Facebook from the graduation.

Campus Security Updates

The district installed an access control buzzer system on the front door of our school as part of the campus safety plans. Please be aware that the door is locked and you must ring the doorbell to be granted access into the building. Have your ID ready to present to the camera when you come to the door. We continue to strive to keep all students safe at school. For more information visit Klein's "Keep Klein Safe" website.

Changes in Transportation

Parents,

Transportation changes should be made before 3:00 PM by calling the front office at 832-484-6700.

Dojo and email are awesome and we love them for communication purposes. We do not love them for transportation changes. The teacher may be absent, or busy teaching and not receive your message in time. We appreciate your help and support in making sure all of our Patriots get home safely.

Mittelstadt School Store

Mittelstädt has a school store that is open to our students every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:45 to 8:10. We sell school supplies, spirit shirts and a variety of special fun items the kids enjoy. Stop by and check us out!

Klein ISD Policy for Birthday Celebrations at School

We enjoy celebrating all kinds of events at Mittelstadt Elementary. We welcome you to help your child celebrate his/her birthday. We appreciate your help in keeping all of our students safe by following the procedures in place. Please see the page from the student handbook related to the Klein ISD policy about providing birthday treats at school.

Custody Issues

Please assist us in the handling of custody related issues. It is the responsibility of the parents to provide the principal with a certified copy of the court order affecting any other person's right to their children. Should you have any questions, please contact Ms. Levy at clevy1@kleinisd.net

Use of Wireless Devices While Operating a Motor Vehicle

The Texas Transportation Code currently prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle within a school crossing zone. The Legislature has added a new offense to the Transportation Code that prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on any school property with a crossing zone and while the reduced speed limit is in effect, unless the vehicle is stopped or the driver is using a hands-free device, or there is a specified emergency. This offense was added to address the problems of individuals using wireless devices while driving through school parking lots or driving lanes. This new legislation permits Klein ISD police officers to stop and cite individuals operating a motor vehicle on a school parking lot provided the vehicle is in motion at the time of the offense. This provision is in addition to the existing law enabling officers to cite drivers within a school crossing zone.

School Hours and Attendance

The tardy bell is at 8:14.

End of day dismissal is at 3:35

If your child is absent, please send a note within 5 days of his/her return to school.
