What is Stories on Parade?
Join us for our 3rd Annual Stories on Parade Literacy Event!
We will have literacy games from 5:30 to 6:30 and PTA will have snacks for sale.
The parade will be from 6:45 - 7:00. All students are asked to choose a character in a book and dress up as that character for the school day.
Students must have their books with them and please make sure props are small and appropriate.
Logan Blackburn advances to STATE competition!
Twenty students from Keller ISD schools have advanced to the State PTA Reflections competition and will have a chance to continue to the National level.
Students in preschool through grade 12 may create and submit works of art in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts. This year’s theme was “The World Would Be a Better Place If.”
