End of year party June 3rd

We can't wait to celebrate! Although we are not permitted to invite outside guests into the building, we still want to continue our tradition of hosting an end of year party for our face-to- face students. We will provide party bags for our virtual students to pick up on June 1st from 4:30-5:30. Classroom parties are not required but we value this time for our students to be able to celebrate with their classroom community on the last day of school. Homeroom parents will reach out to you regarding the party planning details and how you can help.


We can't wait to celebrate our Cougars!

It is time to begin planning for next year Cougars. Order your school supplies for the 21-22 school year using the online link below. Our teachers have created these lists and are hopeful you will order your child's supplies by June 13th.

Last remote learning day of the school year is May 17th.

Credit by Exam Information

Summer Credit By Exam testing will take place once in June and once in July. If you are interested in having your child tested before the next school year starts please email Nicole.Carroll@cfisd.net to request more information and an application.


Students in grades K-5 will have four opportunities during the school year to use “credit-by-exam” to accelerate to another grade level. Students will only have one opportunity to test for each grade level considered.


To apply to take the test to skip kindergarten, a student must be 5 by September 1, and registered in a CFISD school. To apply to take the test to skip grade 1, a student must be 6 by September 1, and enrolled in a CFISD school.


Students who earn scores of 80% or better on each component of the credit-by-exam will qualify to advance one grade. Only one grade level may be “skipped” each year. No retests will be given.


If you are interested in getting more information about credit-by-exam, please contact Nicole.Carroll@cfisd.net
