Monday, October 8, Professional Development & Parent-Teacher Conference Day

Our wonderful teaching staff will be participating in staff development this coming Monday, October 8. This means our students have a day off, along with Friday, October 5. That's a four-day weekend Tigers-- enjoy!


Next week our teachers will be sending home information on your students' progress to date this school year. They will also be offering optional parent-teacher conferences when they are not attending staff development on the 8th. Teachers will be sending home information this week regarding sign-ups for conferencing options. If it is more convenient to speak by phone, or schedule a different day, the choice is yours. While we want everyone to have the opportunity to speak with teachers directly, please do not feel obligated to attend on the 8th if it does not work with your schedule. Many of you have already been meeting throughout the course of these 9 weeks, and we appreciate your continued support of our learners!

Thank You Traci Sanders And Our Fabulous Mom/Son Kickball Event Volunteers!

The Mother/Son Kickball Event was great fun. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the many volunteers who made the event a huge success. And, a special shout-out is due Traci Sanders who chaired the event. Thank you, Traci! We appreciate you!

Kardivas Meet Every Thursday in the Library Beginning October 4!

As you may already know, the LTISD administration recently announced that Kardivas will now be offered as an Enrichment Program under the District's Office of Community Programs. This new classification ensures District support and broader awareness. However, the content, structure, and leadership of the Kardivas program will not change.


Enrollment is open to all fifth-grade girls at each LTISD elementary school. The fall program will be held from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. most Thursdays between October 4, 2018, and January 31, 2019. (No meetings will be held on November 22, December 20, December 27, or January 3.) A fall registration fee of $70 per student will include a Kardivas t-shirt and a snack for each week of the program. More information is listed in the 2018 LTISD Community Programs Fall Enrichment catalog.


To inquire about a program scholarship, or to make a donation towards other participants requesting a scholarship, please contact Lisa Johnson, Kardivas co-founder and director, at lisa@johnsonlakeway.com.


West Cypress Hills Elementary School looks forward to supporting Kardivas and the continued success of this long-standing program!
