Counselors' Corner

CREDIT BY EXAM:

The State Board of Education has established procedures to allow elementary students to “skip” one grade level by taking a series of exams which assess the Texas Essential Knowledge/Skills (TEKS) established for that grade level. Parents interested in having their children screened for credit-by-exam should contact their school counselor. If the school is unable to answer a question, please email the Testing Office at creditbyexam@cfisd.net.


Students in grades K-5 will have four opportunities during the school year to use “credit-by-exam” to accelerate to another grade level. Students will only have one opportunity to test for each grade level considered.


As school counselors, we also can help with connecting to community resources. One community resource is the Houston Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank allows for us to serve as a liaison for a program called Backpack Buddies. We send home canned and nonperishable foods home weekly in a backpack. If you are in need of this program, please call us at (281)897-4470. Other resources include outside therapists, church ministries, school supplies, backpacks, etc. When in doubt, please call or email for any assistance. We look forward to working with you and your family.


April's Core Value is Hope!

The Birthday Marquee Is Back!

Make your child’s birthday extra special by having their name showcased on the Millsap Marquee located in the front of the school for everyone to see!


Birthday wishes will be changed out every Friday (unless otherwise noted) and displayed for a week for all to see & celebrate. There will 5 spots available each week for Millsap Birthday Wishes.


Due to limited availability, we suggest to reserve your child’s marquee spot ahead of your child’s birthday. If your child's Birthday week is filled, consider the week before or after. Does your child have a summer Birthday? Consider celebrating their name on the Marquee on their Half Birthday!


The cost is $15 for each Birthday Wish.

WE STILL TAKE BOX TOPS!


If you have a stash of Box Tops in your kitchen drawer, send them to us!


We can still send them in and would love to have them. They absolutely make a difference.


Thank you!

Important Reminders

  • Transportation changes should be made in writing by sending a letter which includes the name of the child, the teacher, the date, and the signature of the parent/guardian.


  • Only emergency changes should be made through email to the Millsap email address, or by fax. Transportation changes that are emailed to Millsap must include the student's name, teacher name, date of transportation change, and a copy of the parent's ID. Any transportation changes and/or pick-ups after 3:15 pm require approval from an administrator.


  • Please be aware that access into the building can be a slow process due to the check-in requirements. We encourage everyone to please plan at least 5-10 minutes to go through our check-in process. All adults will need to provide their driver’s license or legal identification card. There will be no exceptions. Even VIPS and other parents who come frequently will have to show their ID each time they enter the building.

Lost & Found

We have a growing 'lost and found' area. If your student has lost something, please remind them to look on the stage during their lunch time. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to claim their lost items. Thank you!
