Student Safety Concerns

(For students being dropped off in the morning)

To ensure students are able to enter the building in a safe manner we are asking that you drop students off in the morning on the side closest to the building. Please don’t pull up near the school entrance and have students walk across the street to enter the building. We have had too many incidents and close calls and we want to ensure students are able to safely enter the building in the morning. Parents, please be sure you are adhering to the crossing guards directions and not parking in the no parking zones in the morning. Conroe ISD police may issue tickets if you are non-compliant.

Principal's Corner

In May our 5th and 6th graders are testing on the 13th, 14th, and 15th. Please don't schedule any doctor visits on these days. Our students have worked so hard to prepare for this test. We appreciate your attention to this matter.

5th Grade Curriculum Spotlight

In science, students are in the middle of preparing for the STAAR test which will be May 15th. In math(during the first two weeks of May) students will continue to review all math concepts learned this school year. They will then begin reviewing material that will be revisited in 6th grade, and will also learn a few 6th grade concepts. In Social Studies, we will discuss World War I, the New Deal, and World War II. We will begin preparing for our end of the year benchmark that will be on May 22nd. In reading, the students are immersed in book clubs. Each team is working on different projects, and incorporating technology to summarize and share their books with classmates. The students can continue working on Achieve 3000 at home and during school.

6th Grade Curriculum Spotlight

In science, students will begin reviewing all science concepts they have learned this year to prepare for their benchmark at the end of May.
