In case no one told you today....

Your kids are AWESOME!

Students are engaged and we are learning at a fast pace. Teachers are preparing for Parent Conferences and appreciate partnering with you. Have you signed up for a Parent Conference yet?

We are also celebrating National Hispanic Month at Justin Elementary. Teachers are reading books and students are sharing stories about family, events, ideas, and achievements contributed by Hispanic Americans in our county.

Lastly, we loved having Grandparents visit our school last week! Kiddos got new books from the book fair and our cafeteria was busting at the seams with so many big smiles!

Snap a pic of the NISD calendar below with upcoming holidays so that your family can plan ahead for your vacations. It's very hard for students to catch up after with their classwork after being absent.

Teamwork makes the dream work!

Skip Town.... Without Missing School!

Vacation days are NOT excused absences per NISD attendance policy. The state of Texas has very strict guidelines on how many absences are allowed, when formal attendance letters are sent to parents, and how school funding is tied to student attendance.

Transfer these "student holiday" dates to your calendar now! Plan ahead for vacations so that your child will not have too many absences.
