Student Council Update
Mittelstadt’s Fifth Grade STUCO has been hard at work with their first fundraiser. STUCO decided they would like to leave a parting gift to Mittelstadt representing their fifth grade class. They have come up with a very unique idea to paint the mural in our garden and also purchase more garden supplies and an additional piece of electronic equipment for PE. Recognizing this would require lots of money, they jumped into their first fundraiser…Candy Grams!
The students created their own marketing and sold lollipops to the teachers for Valentine’s Day. They were responsible for the creation of all lollipops sold and delivering them to the teachers. They were very excited over the positive response and realized they had to work extra hard to keep up with the high demand. They came in early, worked during lunch, and even recruited additional classmates to assist! It was a true team effort. It was all worth it as the students earned $341 to go towards their goal. Great job Mittelstadt Fifth Grade STUCO!
The next fundraiser is going to be at Kleb Middle School on March 31 where we will have a car wash!
Latest from the Library
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
Dr. Seuss was born March 2, 1904 in Massachusetts. His real name is Theodor "Ted" Seuss Geisel. In honor of his birthday, we celebrate “Read Across America Day”. You can learn more about him and other famous Americans at www.PebbleGo.com. Our username is Mittelstadt and the password is Patriots.
This year we are celebrating by having a guest author/ illustrator visit! Every Patriot will be able to hear a presentation by Michael Anthony Steele on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 27th.
See you in the library!
Changes in Transportation
Transportation changes should be made before 3:00 PM by calling the front office at 832-484-6700.
Dojo and email are awesome and we love them for communication purposes. We do not love them for transportation changes. The teacher may be absent, or busy teaching and not receive your message in time.
We appreciate your help and support in making sure all of our Patriots get home safely.
Mittelstadt School Store
Mittelstädt has a school store that is open to our students every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:45 to 8:10. We sell school supplies, spirit shirts and a variety of special fun items the kids enjoy. Stop by and check us out!
Klein ISD Policy for Birthday Celebrations at School
Use of Wireless Devices While Operating a Motor Vehicle
The Texas Transportation Code currently prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle within a school crossing zone. The Legislature has added a new offense to the Transportation Code that prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on any school property with a crossing zone and while the reduced speed limit is in effect, unless the vehicle is stopped or the driver is using a hands-free device, or there is a specified emergency. This offense was added to address the problems of individuals using wireless devices while driving through school parking lots or driving lanes. This new legislation permits Klein ISD police officers to stop and cite individuals operating a motor vehicle on a school parking lot provided the vehicle is in motion at the time of the offense. This provision is in addition to the existing law enabling officers to cite drivers within a school crossing zone.
School Hours and Attendance
End of day dismissal is at 3:35
If your child is absent, please send a note within 5 days of his/her return to school.
