STAAR Testing

Parents: Next week on April 9th and April 10th, our students will be STAAR and STAAR Sim testing. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will have a closed campus (no deliveries, lunch visitations, etc).


There will be no extra curricular activities Monday afternoon, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday. Please remind students to not bring cell phones and other electronics (except for Chromebooks), as these are prohibited by the state in testing rooms. Thank you for your teamwork as we prepare our students for their state assessments.”

Missing A Cell Phone?

Please stop by the 6th Grade office (Rm. 1114). Students will have to describe the phone in order to retrieve.

STUDENT LUNCH DROP OFF

Parents, we have a large amount of lunches that are being dropped off each day. Due to the volume of lunches and calling students to the office we are asking that you please follow the guidelines below. We appreciate your help with this matter as we want to ensure all students receive their lunches in a timely manner as well as maintain safety. Have a great weekend and Go Hawks.


1) Communicate with your student before school on days you plan to bring a lunch.

2) Students will be responsible for coming to pick up the lunch directly from you in the front office. (The office will not be holding lunches or sending for students. As a reminder, students are allowed to check their messages between classes.)

ATHLETICS

Anyone interested in trying out for ANY sport next year needs to get a physical. We will shuttle kids up to Klein Oak High School Thursday, April 4th afterschool but you will need a ride home. The cost is $20 and it must be cash. You also must be dressed out in athletic clothes. The forms are KLEIN ISD forms & you can ONLY use those forms.
