From the Principal
PfISD schools will remain CLOSED for the remainder of the school year in accordance with Gov. Abbott’s executive order issued yesterday. We will continue with our remote learning practices in place for the rest of the school year. http://pfisd.net/coronavirus
I, and the entire Mott staff are very sad that we will not see our students face to face and give them hugs or high fives. Please give your child an extra hug from us. Scroll to the bottom of the Mott News for some pictures related to the spirit week themes.
Help your neighbors stay informed
We have many email addresses and families that are on this email list, however, if you hear that someone is not receiving my emails or district emails, please send their email address and name to me at email@example.com . Spread the word! The more informed we are, the better!
Great News! Starting now, families visiting any of 10 PfISD meal delivery sites on Fridays may pick up meals for that day, as well as two extra breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Weekend meals will be served at meal delivery locations from 8-9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Friday beginning April 17. Meals will be provided curbside at the locations above.
Children must be 18 years old or younger. Parents or guardians may pick up meals with or without children present, but identification will be required for children not present at pick-up.
Parents/guardians may only pick up meals for their own children. For more information go to: http://ow.ly/4AmX50zg6fB

BRIGHT BYTES SURVEY
We are partnering with BrightBytes, an educational research organization, to learn more about you and your students’ technology access and use for learning.
The goal of this project is to gather data on technology access, skills, and your school’s technology environment, in order to understand the connection between technology use and student achievement.
Our data collection window is set to run from now to May 27, 2020.
There is one designed for students, and one designed for parents.
Your questionnaire links are listed below:
Your participation and support is important to us and will make the difference between having a complete understanding of our school’s technology use versus a limited one.
PfISD Board Meetings will now be streamed on YouTube.
Consistent with Board Policy, citizen comments will be limited to topics on the agenda. ○ Individuals wishing to address the Board of Trustees must leave a voice message of no more than three minutes in length at 512-594-9900 on April 16, 2020 between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Art to Remember
Hi families and friends,
Our school is participating in a creative fundraiser with Art to Remember that allows you to purchase keepsake products customized with your child’s art. There are over 50 products and many are less than $15. These make great gifts and a percentage of every purchase goes right back to our school. Click on the link below and enter the online order code shown on your child’s order form or to search for your child’s artwork. Then, have fun shopping!
Special Areas Menus
The Special Area Menus that are coming from me and the teachers are meant to be choices for your child. You do not have to complete all of them. Pick from any area as often as you would like. These are meant to be fun for your child and easy to accomplish at home. If you do not have all the supplies needed for a project, no worries! Just choose another item.
