From our Counselor

Longhorns of the Week will begin next Friday, September 25th.

  • One student will be recognized from each class on the Friday morning announcements and with a special award delivered to the classroom. Students will be chosen for displaying the character quality of patience.

Citizens of Character will look different this year.

  • We are planning an event in December and another in the spring with social distancing in mind. The character qualities to be recognized at the December event will be patience and resilience. More details to come.

Our fabulous PTO has purchased breakaway lanyards for our children and staff. We will be distributing those lanyards at the start of next week. When your child comes home with this red mask lanyard we urge you to label it with your child's name. If you already have a preferred lanyard or if you choose not to use the lanyard you are welcome to send it back or not use it. We will be unable to replace missing lanyards. *Lanyards went home this week.

Speaking of our fabulous PTO. They have also supported our campus with teacher desk shields, some student desk shields for specialized programs, and supplies for our secondary clinic.

Thank you to our AMAZING PTO and thank you to our families that support and partner with our PTO for the benefit of our kids!
