KHES Climate Survey ~ we value your feedback!

Keller ISD launched its annual Campus Climate Surveys through K12 Insight on Thursday, March 5. All families should have received an email from Dr. Reid with the survey link. These surveys provide valuable data regarding the performance and perception of Keller Harvel. Typically about 11% - 12% of our families participate in these types of surveys. The more responses we receive, the clearer the picture will be regarding our specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. Everyone will have through Sunday, March 22, to complete the survey.

The Keller ISD Film Festival due date EXTENDED!

The KISD Film Festival deadline has been extended! Films are now due Monday, March 23rd!

Science Fair

Science Fair projects can be brought in on Thursday, March 26th. Tables will be set up in the main hallways and in our professional development room.



  • 4th grade only - Be sure and look for your homeroom teacher's name so you know which tables to place your board on.
  • 3rd grade only - please go to your grade level hallway when you come in and find Mrs. Juro. She will direct you to the tables where you will place your projects.
  • Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students only - please go to room G-1 (our PD room) right across from the Music room and place your projects on a table.



All students in Kindergarten - 3rd grade who participate in the Science Fair will be receiving a Spirit Stick. All 4th grade students will receive a participation certificate.


Three students in both 3rd and 4th grade will receive ribbons in the following categories:

On the night of the PTA Meeting/Science Fair, please enter the building through the gym foyer doors. The front entrance and main hallway will be closed off to all visitors until after the announcement of our winners.
