For the safety of our students, staff, and community members, we are moving our Meet the Teacher night outside this Thursday, 5:30 - 7:00. PreK, Kindergarten, and 1st grade will be under the covered drive that is past the cafeteria (PreK wing). 2nd and 3rd grade will be under the covered drive at the front entrance. 4th and 5th grade will be in the outdoor learning circle, between the gym and front entrance. We are excited to meet our new students and see our returning students. Don’t forget your school supplies! PTO will be selling snow cones and t-shirts. See you soon!
We always strive to make improvements and be better than we were yesterday. Please help us by filling out the anonymous survey that will help us grow as a school and help our students be more successful. We hope everyone has a fabulous, fun and safe summer.
Monday, March 22nd, the elementary campus will be closed and students will learn remotely from home. This is for one day only. Detailed information will be sent home with each student by the end of the week. Before any construction work at the elementary can begin, we must remove all the contents from the building. Before any removal can occur, the teachers and administrators need to inventory the damages. For this to be done correctly, the teachers will have to go through everything in their classrooms – books, curriculum, hand-made materials, personal items they use in the rooms, furniture, etc. We cannot expect the teachers to do this at night after teaching all day. So, in order for them to have the necessary time to conduct this inventory accurately, we are making Monday (3/22/21) a remote learning day for elementary student. We appreciate your continued support as we work through this process. Thank you.
Many of you, as well as many schools across the State, have experienced damage from the recent storms. The elementary campus experienced extensive damage. We have contractors and restoration companies onsite, working to make the campus safe for students and staff. It will take approximately two weeks before instruction can resume in the elementary school. We have a plan for our elementary students to receive face-to-face instruction while the contractors work to make repairs. Corsicana ISD has generously made one of their unused buildings available for us to use during this time. Through a focused collaboration between our administrators and CISD staff, our students will be able to resume their education with little loss of time. It will require some flexibility, but our teachers and administrators are outstanding and will do all that is needed to make sure your children are in a safe and loving learning environment.
