Have your student at school on time on Tuesday. They will return to Seguin on Friday between 1:00-2:00. This is going to be a fun experience for everyone!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive

Seguin along with WISD is having a Food Drive for Peanut Butter and Jelly. We will be collecting through the month of April and donating it to the Senior Center of Weatherford and Center of Hope/Camp Hope. ANY and ALL donations will be greatly appreciated! Grade level with the most donations will receive a popcorn party!!!!

Box Tops

Please keep continuing to collect Box Tops. We appreciate your support through Box Tops! Be sure to put them in a baggie with the student's name and their teacher's name. Thank you for your help!

Arrival Time!

Student arrival time is 7:50! This time is the time that students need to be in class. The first bell rings at 7:40. Please make sure that your student is arriving in time to eat breakfast if needed and travel to class by 7:50. Students are counted tardy if they are not in class by 7:50.

Safety Drills For April


This month, we will be practicing two safety drills. We will practice how to evacuate the building in case of fire, and a shelter drill to practice for in the event of a tornado. These drills help us teach students the processes needed to be successful during a possible emergency and ensure that we are prepared in case of an emergency.

A Dollop of Dyslexia

Expect less written work

A person with dyslexia may be verbally bright but struggle to put ideas into writing.

Allow more time for reading, listening and understanding.

Prepare a printout of homework and stick it in their book

Provide numbered steps, e.g. 1. Do this. 2. Do that etc.

STAY CONNECTED!

After School Traffic Patterns

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve our drop off and pick up traffic patterns. In order to keep our students safe, we have adjusted the traffic pattern entering from 8th Street. The entrance from 8th street will allow families to park in the parking lot, walk down to the student area, and pick up or drop off students. The parking lot exit is now a right turn only onto Duke street. No left hand turns into the drive through lanes will be allowed from the parking lot area. Families using the drive through lanes will need to enter from Duke street.
