Surprised and Honored!

Nurse Rhonda was surprised today at the KISD PTA Brag Luncheon. She has been given an Honorary Lifetime Membership from Texas PTA for her contributions to helping raise money for Casey's Kids & the ADA Diabetes Walk. We love you Nurse Rhonda!!!!!

A Special Message from our Gifted & Talented Teacher, Toni Mucker

I hope you’re all doing well! I have a couple of items to share with you. This coming week will be our last week of GT classes for this school year. During the last few weeks of school, I will be testing prospective GT students. If your child is already in GT, he/she will not need to re-test. Once you’re in, you’re in. J


This year will be particularly difficult for me during our last day of classes…as I will not be your child’s GT Specialist next year. Oh, how I will miss all of my wonderful students! Our family is moving to Eugene, Oregon, the week after school gets out. We’re very excited about the move as we’ve always loved the Pacific Northwestern region of the country. However, I am reluctant to say goodbye to your children and the best job I’ve ever had. Being a GT Specialist in Keller ISD for the past 12 years has been the highlight of my career in education.


Thank you for sharing your children with me. I love them all!
