Message from Dr. Reilly

The window has closed for changing your child's learning option for the 3rd marking period. As of February 1st, 78% of our students will be on campus for F2F instruction.


I wanted to share a quick update about the playground enhancements funded by our STEAM fundraiser. We are finalizing the quote for the Edumarkings on the playground. I will update you with a timeline as soon as they are ready to begin the process. As part of the fundraiser, we earned credit at the STEAM store. The committee is finalizing selections and the list will be shared when we place the order. See below for some of the exciting ideas for our playground.

Valentine's Day Celebration

We have set aside a brief time at the end of the school day on Thursday, February 11 for Face-to-Face students to exchange valentines (Feb 12 is a remote learning day). If you choose to send your child with valentines for their classmates, we ask that you send enough for all the face-to-face students in the homeroom and label them all "To: My Friend, From: (Your child's name)". This will aid in passing cards out quickly and easily. A store-bought, individually packaged candy/ food item may be included, but we cannot accept homemade food items. The valentines will go home with your child so that you can make the best decision about if and/or what your child eats. Students will be provided with a bag for the exchange. Teachers will communicate digital ideas for our Connect students.

School Report Card

The State of Texas 2019-20 School Report Card for Farney Elementary has been publicly released and is now posted on our campus website.

This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.
