Reminder

Tuesday, November 6th Collins will be utilized as an voting site. We anticipate a substantial number of people on campus this day. Traffic and parking may be affected through the early morning, during the day, and dismissal. We will do our best minimize confusion during drop-off and pick-up.

Attendance

As we progress through the school year, please continue to remember the importance of school attendance and arriving to school on time. In addition, children who arrive late to school miss the important groundwork that is laid by teachers at the beginning of the day.


The instruction and learning that occur on a daily basis in the classroom is our central mission. Parents who make regular school attendance and punctuality a high priority are helping their children learn to accept responsibility, which is an important lesson for a successful life.


As we work to increase Collins Intermediate’s daily attendance – please continue to support your child’s educational process by limiting the amount of school missed except for illness. Collins Intermediate daily goal is 98.4%.

Our current yearly average 98.3%

This program is designed to encourage and offer incentives for perfect school attendance and no tardies. Students arriving late to school miss the important groundwork that is laid by teachers at the beginning of the day. The instruction and learning that occur on a daily basis in the classroom is our central mission. Parents who make regular school attendance and punctuality a high priority are helping their children learn to accept responsibility, which is an important lesson for a successful life.

PTO Fundraising Info

Collins Intermediate PTO

Alternative Fundraiser

Who is ready to go door to door selling items to raise money? We didn’t think so! In lieu of that we offer a ONE-TIME donation to the PTO. As a result, we rely on your donations as our “fundraiser” to provide things like field, trips, Chrome carts, tutoring, and many other educational supplements for the classrooms. If we do not meet our goal then those things may be in jeopardy of not happening…OR we will all have to start going door to door!


_____$85 I do not want a freezer full of cookie dough or to bug my friends and neighbors to buy it, collect their money, and then deliver the products. Here is the money instead. (Friend of Collins Maroon Tier- our goal for every student so that we meet budget).


_____$150 I do not want to walk, run, swim, or bike anything that ends in “thon.” Here is the money I would have helped my child raise for a “free” t-shirt. (Silver Tier)


_____$200 I really would not have been able to help in any other way, so here is my $200 to not email me about it again. (Platinum Tier)


_____$Write in your donation amount to express your appreciation for having nothing to sell, buy, or do except fill out this form or donate online.


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR DONATION!


You can go online using My School Anywhere right now to donate. If you do not have a My School Anywhere account yet, you will need one for many things throughout the year so go to join.myschoolanywhere.com and use “joincollins” as your invitation code.

Howdy from the Collins Clinic!


Flu season is upon us! Please remember if your child has a fever, they must be fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of Tylenol or Advil before returning to school. The single most important thing we can do to prevent the spread of flu and other infections is to WASH OUR HANDS!

If your child needs cough drops at school, please fill out a parent permission form before sending them to school.

Thank you!

Practice Reports are due every Tuesday. Students did a great job with this in the first grading period. For this grading period it is bright purple to make it easy to find. Detailed information about practice requirements is on the form, in the Orchestra Handbook, and in Canvas.


Our calendar is in Canvas, as well as course information. Please add our performance dates and information to your family calendar. Please check to be sure that you can see your child’s Canvas account. Did you know that you can add contact information for yourself under settings in Canvas and adjust how and when you want to be notified of assignments and information? It’s in Canvas under notifications.


Fine arts tee shirts that were ordered by the original deadline have been sent home with your student. If you ordered later they will be coming in a few weeks.


Honor Orchestra rehearsals begin at 7:40 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays. Honor Orchestra members, please be in your seat ready to play by then. Please send a note or email if you have an excused absence from Honor Orchestra.

PE

During the past few weeks the students have been learning how to play flag football. Student learned proper passing, punting, and kicking skills for the upcoming Fall Frenzy on October 19th from 4:30-7:30. Along with learning the football skills, the students have been able to utilize these skills with a lead up flag football game. During the week of October 15th-18th the students will be able to make their own team and create a unique team name for our round robin flag football game. The students have had a great time learning about football as well as improving on their passing, punting, and kicking skills.

Anytime Collins Reminders

2018 Accountability Summary

Students Walking to Kroger at End of School Day

We have been contacted by the businesses around Kroger asking for help. There are so many parents parking at store fronts and behind Kroger there is not space for their paying customers. This is impacting their businesses and they have asked Collins parents parked and waiting for their student's walking from Collins to no longer park in those areas.


We have also been told that students are running in the very crowded parking lot and we are concerned that our children could be hurt by motorists moving in and out of the area.


Please do not move to the neighborhoods - parents parking on lawns of homeowners and blocking traffic in and out of neighborhoods is not an alternate solution for avoiding the car line.


Thank you so much for your help!

Bad Weather Dismissal

Collins Dismissal Procedures During Inclement Weather:

· Collins will make a call by 3:45 p.m. to announce a “rainy day dismissal”

· Bike riders and walkers will NOT be allowed to bike or walk home during extremely severe rain or when lightning occurs within 5 miles of Collins.

· Families of bike riders and walkers should have a predetermined plan that when heavy rain/lightening is present, the student will ride the school bus or be picked up in the car line.

Attendance

As we begin an exciting new school year, I want to remind everyone of the importance of school attendance and of arriving to school on time. In addition, children who arrive late to school miss the important groundwork that is laid by teachers at the beginning of the day. The instruction and learning that occur on a daily basis in the classroom is our central mission. Parents who make regular school attendance and punctuality a high priority are helping their children learn to accept responsibility, which is an important lesson for a successful life.

N.E.A.T. Kids—Never Ever Absent or Tardy

Awarded to students each nine weeks who reported to each day of school and all classes on time. More detailed information soon to come.

· Once a student enters the building in the morning the cell phone/smart watch/electronic device must be turned off.

· A classroom teacher may allow a student to use a cell phone/smart watch/electronic device as an instructional tool. Once the class is over the device should be turned off.

· Once a student has left the building the device may be turned back on.

Tardy

A student is tardy if they are not in the classroom by the 8:50 bell.

A student tardy to class will:

· Have a tardy marked in the computer

· A note placed in the student planner by the teacher

· After the 3rd, 4th and 5th tardy a warning email will be sent home

· On the 6th tardy the student will be assigned a before school detention

· The tardy counts starts new each nine weeks

Some things to remember:

· Dropping students off by 8:30 a.m. is the best way to ensure a student has time to:

· Put instruments away

· Visit Locker

· Participate in KCOL Broadcast, Pledges, and Moment of Silence

· Be in their classroom prior to the 8:50 bell

Morning Drop Off

Please remember students should not be dropped off before 8 a.m.

No adult supervision is present before 8 a.m. Only honor performance groups with scheduled practice are permitted early arrival.

Transportation Changes

Transportation changes should be communicated between the parent and the child prior to coming to school for the day. Should you feel your child needs a reminder you may contact the front office, prior to 3:15, for notice to be delivered to your child. We understand that an occasion may arise when it is necessary to make a last minute transportation change. These last minute changes should be reserved for emergency situations only. For the safety of our children, these changes should be made before 3:15 p.m.

Checking Out Early

Students leaving early for appointments at the end of the day must be signed out by 3:40 p.m.; we cannot call for students during dismissal.

Students will be called for dismissal upon parent's arrival in the front office. We cannot call for students prior to your arrival.

Afternoon—Students Walkers

We have a large number of students that have become walkers in the afternoon. We do not promote the practice of students meeting their parents in the Kroger shopping center, YMCA or community neighborhoods. Student safety is of upmost importance— it is imperative that students NEVER cross Showdowbend in the middle of the street. A cross walk should always be used when crossing the heavy traffic that exists on our main road.

Car-Line Rules and Procedures

· Cars are required to stop behind the stop sign and not proceed forward until the stop sign is moved approximately 3:55 p.m..

· Parents may not park in the small visitors parking lot and wait for your child.

· Be courteous to those waiting in the car line and not pull around those waiting and “cut” in line before we call for car riders.

· We do not want cars moving in the parking lot when we dismiss walkers and bikers for all students’ safety.

· Students leaving early due to appointments MUST be picked up by 3:40 p.m. so there is no interruption to the dismissal process.

· Walkers and bikers are dismissed at 4:00 p.m.

· For student safety—walkers and bikers should only cross the street using cross walks. · · Children should pause and watch traffic carefully to assure it is safe to cross.

· Car riders are dismissed at 4:05 p.m.

· For afternoon pickup process, please approach the driveway from Woodlands Parkway to Shadowbend turning right into driveway. NO LEFT Hand Turn in the PM. This will avoid traffic congestion from the Research direction.

· Parents may not park within the school zone on the sides of Shadowbend to pick up students. This disrupts traffic flow and it is unsafe for children and adults to be on the busy road.

Bus Transportation

Registration for Bus Transportation

Students who were registered for bus service last year are automatically renewed each year, so only students who are new or have never registered for service will need to register for bus service. http://bus.conroeisd.net/RegisterTrans.aspx

In the coming days, CISD transportation will open the website to confirm and check all students bus information (pick up / drop off times and locations). https://routeinfo.conroeisd.net/infolocatorrc/info.aspx?OrgGuid=ORG-CONROE&profileguid=conroe_1718


Bus Rider Transportation Tags

Any student riding the bus will be issued a bus tag to be placed on the outside of their backpack. Student’s tag will be scanned as the board the bus to leave each afternoon. If a student loses their tag during the year the child should let his/her homeroom teacher know immediately so that we can provide a replacement.


Bus Dismissal At The End Of School

Students will be dismissed from class to report to their assigned bus. As buses arrive the bus number will appear on the screen in each homeroom. It is the student’s responsibility to monitor the screen and leave class to load their bus.


Changing Buses

Students may NOT ride another bus except in emergencies and only with the permission of Collins Administration. Parents must submit a written request at least 24 hours in advance of the change. Administration must have time to verify the change with both sets of parents. Riding home with a friend on Friday to spend the night is not a change that will be approved. Once approved the school will notify transportation and the bus driver.

Lunch & Breakfast

Beginning on the first day of school, parents may send money (cash or check) for their child to set up a lunch account. My School Bucks in an online account that may continued to be used from year to year or a new account set up at https://www.myschoolbucks.com/ver2/login/getmain?requestAction=home A Parent Access Account allows parents to see the amount of money available to the child. Please visit: http://www.conroeisd.net/department/child-nutrition/ for menu options and more information. If a student’s account runs out of funds he/she will only be allowed to charge one meal. After the one charge a student will be provided an “alternate meal”. Students are given a reminder to take home to parents when their account is low or out of funds.
