The Florence Flyer

September 23, 2016

Hello Florence Family!

We had a great "Wear your college shirt day at Florence" . I saw many Aggies, Texas Tech, Red Raiders, Longhorns, Razorbacks, Sooners, Cowboys and a few of my favs, TIGERS, a Ragin Cajun and LA Tech!!! Your kids were adorable! It's great to instill in them the desire to go to college at a young age!

We are looking forward to this next week as we welcome our grandparents!

I hope you all have a blessed weekend!



Book Fair

Our first book fair is next week and coincides with Grandparents Day! Come peruse through and see the wonderful reading opportunities for your children!

Fall Pictures - September 27th

Grandparents Day

We are so excited to have our grandparents join us September 29th (A-M) and September 30th (N-Z) for lunch. We need your help in two ways. We need for you to sign up in order for our cafeteria staff to be prepared. We also need you to remind grandparents to bring their ID (driver's license or passport).

Spring Creek

Thank you for the amazing turnout at Chick-Fil-A spirit night on September 30th. We raised $650! Chick-Fil-A said that it was the LARGEST spirit night they have ever had at that location! We want you all to know what an impact you made just by simply attending a spirit night for Florence.

Please mark your calendars for another amazing spirit night at Spring Creek BBQ Keller on Wednesday, October 12, from 5-9 p.m. Spring Creek is very generous and will donate 20% of all dine-in and to go orders during that time, so tell your friends! It will also be a class competition so be sure to tell them the name of your teacher!

See you all on the evening of October 12!

Please check in at the office if you are walking your child past the front lobby

We welcome you to walk your child to their classroom! We ask that you please stop by the front office to obtain a visitors pass. Thank you for your understanding!


We have been asked about the policy for parents attending recess with their children.

Due to safety and instructional concerns, non-school age children, including siblings of students, are not permitted on any campus playgrounds during school hours.

Watchdog dads is a community program and they have completed a background check. They are welcome to play with children throughout the day as long as it follows their assigned schedule.

If a parent wants to come to the playground, they must check in the front office and play with their child only as long as they do not bring siblings. Recess is a time for students to build relationships and to interact with their peers.

Crossing Guard Still Needed

We are looking for a crossing guard each morning and afternoon. You can apply at Keller ISD or call Farah Rehman at 817-744-4700. It's about an hour in both the morning and afternoon.

Bubble Gum and Science???? Yes! It can be fun!
