Park Glen Community,
We are in the full swing of our school year now and as I walk through classrooms I am seeing a lot of student growth already and high quality teaching! Our power actually went out for about 3 minutes this morning and the classes just kept teaching/learning without a hitch. So if your student comes home saying the lights went out, they did. Luckily, they came back on quickly and stayed on the rest of the day! We are blessed at Park Glen to have such strong teachers, respectful students, and supportive parents and I am proud of all the hard work we have put in already!
Don't miss our Back to School Kick-Off tonight from 5:30pm-7:30pm!
Thank you parents so much for your support with our POP4Kids Fundraiser! We are about 75% to our goal! If we reach the goal, the kids get to slime Mr. Roub and they REALLY want to do that! If you haven't added names to your contact list from the Golden Ticket, you still can, simply go to https://app.pop4kids.org/parkglenes76137
We need parents to help monitor the inflatables and help with the snow cone and water stations. If you want to volunteer for the "Day of Awesomeness" click below:
Beginning of Year Testing
We are almost 100% complete with our beginning of the year MAPS testing! Keller ISD utilizes MAPS testing at the beginning, middle, and end of the year to benchmark our students and monitor growth. You should be receiving a Family Report for your students MAPS scores for Reading and Math. MAPS is a norm-reference assessment that compares students with other students in the same grade across the nation who also utilize MAPS. The report you receive will show you your child(ren)'s percentile ranking which means they are currently performing as good as or better than that percent of students across the nation. If you have questions about your child(ren)'s scores, please reach out to your child(ren)'s teacher!
Many of our students are being dropped off or walking to school early and playing in the front lawn by the bike racks before school doors open at 7:40am. We've received some reports of students climbing on and jumping off the picnic tables and bike racks, as well as running around too close to the street. This is a serious safety risk. There are no teachers or staff on duty until 7:40, so please talk to your students if they are an 'early arriver' to please be respectful of each other and the school property and stay safe by keeping away from the street. Thank you for your help with this!
Our carline starts to line up before 3:15 which is when 3rd grade recess ends for the day. We've received some reports of car drivers interacting with students who are at recess, which has caused students to run towards the waiting cars in the carline. If you are an 'early arriver' carline driver, please do not interact with the students while they are at recess. Thank you for your help with this!

World Explorer Club (Help Wanted)
We have had an overwhelming response to the new World Explorer's Club with over 70 students wanting to sign up and join! This is super exciting, however, with that amount of students, we really could benefit from an additional parent volunteer or two. If you are interested in joining the club, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
or there is a QR code on the flyer below so that we can plan the groups AND order the FREE PIZZA! Can't wait to see you all there!
This is a friendly reminder to please use PickUp Patrol to report ALL absences and changes to your student’s dismissal plans.
PickUp Patrol saves us a great deal of time here in the office and reduces interruptions in our classrooms—most importantly, it helps us ensure that all our students are safely dismissed to their correct after-school destinations,
