GO TEXAN DAY

On Friday, March 6th, we will celebrate Go Texan Day at David Elementary School. Students and staff members are encouraged to wear their western outfits.

EARLY RELEASE DAY - FRIDAY, MARCH 6TH

Friday, March 6th, will be an early release day for all CISD students. The school day will begin at 8:05 a.m. and end at 12:10 p.m. Normal bus routes will run beginning at 12:10 p.m. If possible, students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch that day due to time constraints. However, a full menu will be available for purchase. Lunch times will be as follows:


K 10:55 -- 1st 11:00 -- 2nd 11:05

3rd 11:10 -- 4th 11:15


We request that parents not join their child for lunch on this day because all students will be eating in their classrooms.

SPRING FEST

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful Spring Fest Committee, our parents, students, staff, volunteers and donors for a fabulous spring fundraiser at David Elementary. It was such a fun night and we could not have done it without each one of you!

DAVID’S DREAM RUN

SAVE THE DATE!


David’s Dream Run will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Registration will open in March. This event is held to honor David Vetter’s dream to “run barefoot in the grass.” All proceeds from the one mile and 5K run/walk are donated to the David Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital, Woodlands Campus. The David Clinic administers treatment and conducts research for children with Immune Deficient Disorders/Diseases. To date, the increase in funding and support has saved the lives of many children both right here in our own community and across the globe.


David’s Dream Run is a great way for the entire family to get involved in service to our community. So, mark your calendars, dust off your running shoes, and plan to attend/support this very special event!
