DAVID’S DREAM RUN

SAVE THE DATE!


David’s Dream Run will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Registration will open in March. This event is held to honor David Vetter’s dream to “run barefoot in the grass.” All proceeds from the one mile and 5K run/walk are donated to the David Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital, Woodlands Campus. The David Clinic administers treatment and conducts research for children with Immune Deficient Disorders/Diseases. To date, the increase in funding and support has saved the lives of many children both right here in our own community and across the globe.


David’s Dream Run is a great way for the entire family to get involved in service to our community. So, mark your calendars, dust off your running shoes, and plan to attend/support this very special event! If you would like more information or if you would like to help out with the event, please contact Yvonne Larochelle (254.432.9127) or Sonya Dias (832.729.1766) or davidptodreamrun@gmail.com.

ZONING INFORMATION OVERVIEW AND COMMUNITY PRESENTATION MEETINGS

Conroe ISD is in the process of reviewing attendance boundaries in The Woodlands and TW College Park feeder zones in order to relieve crowding at Ride Elementary. An Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC) has been in the process of developing zoning scenarios for the elementary schools for the primary objective of reducing the crowding at Ride. The committee is composed of parents and principals of elementary and intermediate schools serving the Woodlands and College Park feeder patterns along with CISD administrators. The District has obtained input from the parents and community on these various zoning scenarios and will now reconvene to review the input. Using this input, the committee will develop its recommendation. The committee will present its recommendation to parents and community members during a Community Presentation Meeting. Each meeting is offered three times for convenience. Much of the information to be presented at the Zoning Information Overview will be available on CISD’s website at https://conroeisd.net/. Please click on the button below for more information, dates and times of the meetings.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION - WINTER SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS THIS FRIDAY, FEB. 14TH

The online system for Box Tops will now allow you to scan your receipt and give credit to your child's class. You must, however, list your child's teacher along with the grade level. Please do not list your child's name on the app, just the teacher and grade level.


Our winter Box Tops collection for the 2019-2020 year is underway. Participation is easy. Simply clip the Box Tops from participating products, place them in a Ziploc bag or envelope (labeled with your child’s teacher’s name and grade), and have your student drop them in the collection bin located near the front office. Please mark your calendar for our winter submission deadline, Friday, February 14, 2020.
