The curb has been painted to reflect this new change. If there are no available visitor parking spots in the front of the school, we invite you to either park in the staff parking lot or in the street.</li><li style="text-align:left;"><p>With the colder weather, we have seen an increase of unexcused tardies in the morning. Please remember, all students who enter the building after 8:00am are considered tardy and will need parents to check them in.  We are also seeing an increase of early checkouts in the afternoon.  At times, students may have doctor appointments and some unforeseen circumstances. With that said, your child benefits from being here all day.  Please keep in mind that tardies/early checkouts mean that there is more classroom interruptions, which distracts from the flow of instruction.  If your child leaves early or is tardy, he or she is not benefiting from a full day of instruction, which in turn could cause them to fall behind.  We are here to partner with you to ensure that your child succeeds in school. Having a routine that allows them to be on time and present for every class greatly benefits your child.  Thank you for partnering with us to making the most of your child's learning.</p><hr /></li></ul><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/files/7602470/download?wrap=1" alt="Multicult.

to think about a gift for their teacher and other staff at the school.  I want to give you an idea that I know any one of us would love.  Just write to your teacher and let him or her know how you feel.  Tell them the ways they have positively impacted your child and/or your family.  Let them know you appreciate them.  The people at the school chose a profession that they knew would not pay well and that is largely met with criticism.  Why would anyone do that?  They do it because they want to impact the world.  They do it out of passion.  They do it out of love.  When you tell them how they have impacted you and your family, you feed their soul.  It's free and it only takes a little effort.  Make their day and write them how you feel.  If you email, cc me and that will be the icing on the cake for them and me.  My address is: <a href="mailto:ronaldrmosher@katyisd.org" style="text-decoration-line:underline;margin-bottom:0px;">ronaldrmosher@katyisd.org</a>.  Have fun and make

You can also take a look if you are visiting for lunch.  Many of these items have been in the lost and found for a long time.  Hopefully, a little organization will help them be found quicker.  Anything that is left by December 21<span style="font-size:12px;line-height:0;vertical-align:baseline;top:-0.5em;margin-bottom:0px;">st</span> will be donated to a charitable organization.  Water bottles will be thrown away.</p><p style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;">TIP:   Mark your jackets, lunch kits and water bottles with a first and last name.  We will get the items back to you if we know where to take them!</p><hr style="margin:20px 0px;border-right-style:initial;border-right-color:initial;border-left-style:initial;border-left-color:initial;border-top-color:#c7cdd1;border-bottom:none;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;" /><p style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:center;"><span style="margin-bottom:0px;font-size:14pt;"><strong style="margin-bottom:0px;">Increase in Late Arrivals & Early Checkouts</strong></span></p><p style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;">With the colder weather, we have seen an increase of unexcused tardies in the morning. Please remember, all students who enter the building after 8:00am are considered tardy and will need parents to check them in.  We are also seeing an increase of early checkouts in the afternoon.  At times, students may have doctor appointments and some unforeseen circumstances. With that said, your child benefits from being here all day.  Please keep in mind that tardies/early checkouts mean that there is more classroom interruptions, which distracts from the flow of instruction.  If your child leaves early or is tardy, he or she is not benefiting from a full day of instruction, which in turn could cause them to fall behind.  We are here to partner with you to ensure that your child succeeds in school. Having a routine that allows them to be on time and present for every class greatly benefits your child.  Thank you for partnering with us to making the most of your child's learning. </p><hr

moved to the cafeteria.  We have many (and we mean many!) lost and found items such as jackets, water bottles and lunch bags.  If your child needs to look for a lost item, they will need to check during lunch.  Parents are welcome to check the Lost & Found during the school day. You would need to come to the office with your ID to sign the Visitor Log and obtain a Raptor Badge.  The Lost & Found is donated to charity regularly so please have your child check soon after the item is lost.  The next donation will be on December 21, 2018.  <span style="margin-bottom:0px;">TIP</span>:  Mark your jackets, lunch kits and water bottles with a first and last name.  We will return items to you if we know where to take them!</p><hr style="margin:20px 0px;border-right-style:initial;border-right-color:initial;border-left-style:initial;border-left-color:initial;border-top-color:#c7cdd1;border-bottom:none;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;" /><p style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:center;"><span style="margin-bottom:0px;font-size:14pt;"><strong style="margin-bottom:0px;">Student Active Threat Response Training</strong></span></p><p style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;">As we continue to expand our layered security plan to respond to potential threats, the safety of Katy ISD students remains our top priority. Due to the size of our student population and schools, preparing students and staff to respond to active events and threats is imperative. One of the trainings being provided to elementary students this year is called “Run, Hide, Fight.” Similar training is being used by school districts and law enforcement agencies nationwide. Below is a description of the training that will be provided in Katy ISD elementary schools.</p><ul style="padding-left:0px;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:6px;margin-left:25px;color:#2d3b45;font-family:latoweb, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;"><li style="margin-bottom:0px;">Elementary<ul style="padding-left:0px;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:25px;"><li>Students will rely on and follow the direction of their trained teachers in the execution of the Active Threat response strategy (Run, Hide, Fight).</li><li>Schools execute “LOCK DOWN” drills in which elementary teachers rehearse how they will respond when alerted to a threat being inside or outside the campus.</li><li>During scheduled drills, students will rehearse how to prepare in the event of a threat in the school.

Please remember, all students who enter the building after 8:00am are considered tardy and will need parents to check them in.  We are also seeing an increase of early checkouts in the afternoon.  At times, students may have doctor appointments and some unforeseen circumstances. With that said, your child benefits from being here all day.  Please keep in mind that tardies/early checkouts mean that there is more classroom interruptions, which distracts from the flow of instruction.  If your child leaves early or is tardy, he or she is not benefiting from a full day of instruction, which in turn could cause them to fall behind.  We are here to partner with you to ensure that your child succeeds in school. Having a routine that allows them to be on time and present for every class greatly benefits your child.  Thank you for partnering with us to making the most of your child's learning. </p><hr

Please remember, all students who enter the building after 8:00am are considered tardy and will need parents to check them in.  We are also seeing an increase of early checkouts in the afternoon.  At times, students may have doctor appointments and some unforeseen circumstances. With that said, your child benefits from being here all day.  Please keep in mind that tardies/early checkouts mean that there is more classroom interruptions, which distracts from the flow of instruction.  If your child leaves early or is tardy, he or she is not benefiting from a full day of instruction, which in turn could cause them to fall behind.  We are here to partner with you to ensure that your child succeeds in school. Having a routine that allows them to be on time and present for every class greatly benefits your child.  Thank you for partnering with us to making the most of your child's learning. </p><p>Please note that all students are encouraged to participate in school <strong>for the entire day this Friday during Fall Parties.</strong>  Checking students out after the party is both discouraged and unexcused.  Instruction and learning activities continue all day long as essential learning is planned.  Please help reinforce the importance of learning by keeping your child in school the entire day.  As always, there is no student check-out after 2:40 pm.<br></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/files/7429522/download?wrap=1" alt="HOSA Day" style="margin:5px;width:500px;height:647px;" /></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/files/7429641/download?wrap=1" alt="STEAM Night" style="margin:5px;width:500px;height:649px;" /></strong></span></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Bullying Prevention and Intervention Resources</strong></span></p><p>Katy ISD is pleased to share information with parents regarding our district-wide bullying prevention and intervention resources.  Please visit the<a class="external" href="/parents/Pages/Bullying-Prevention.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> Katy ISD Bullying Prevention and Intervention webpage<span class="screenreader-only"> (Links to an external site.)</span><span class="ui-icon ui-icon-extlink ui-icon-inline" title="Links to an external site."><span class="screenreader-only">Links to an external site.</span></span></a>today to learn more, including how to recognize bullying behavior, and Katy ISD's rigorous bullying prevention policies.  </p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Dyslexia Parent and Educator Information</strong></span></p><p>The Katy ISD Office of Interventions is pleased to share additional information with both parents and educators on dyslexia.  This course is free and available to anyone who would like to learn more about dyslexia.  It is designed to provide parents, educators and community members with resources to explore dyslexia.  Visit the <a href="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/181816">Dyslexia Parent and Educator Information course</a> online through Canvas today!</p><hr /><p class="xmsonormal" style="text-align:center;"><strong><span style="font-size:14pt;font-family:"khmer ui", sans-serif;color:black;">WCE GT Screening</span></strong><span style="font-size:14pt;font-family:"khmer ui", sans-serif;color:#1f497d;"> </span><strong><span style="font-size:14pt;font-family:"khmer ui", sans-serif;color:black;">News</span></strong></p><p class="xmsonormal"><span style="font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#1f497d;"> </span><span style="font-size:12pt;"><strong><span style="color:black;">1st—4th Grade  GT Screening</span></strong></span><span style="font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:black;"></span></p><p class="xmsonormal" style="margin-bottom:6pt;line-height:115%;"><span style="font-size:12pt;"><span style="line-height:115%;color:black;">Information regarding GT screening was sent home with 1st—4th grade students</span><span style="line-height:115%;color:#1f497d;"> Thursday, </span><span style="line-height:115%;color:black;">November 1st</span><span style="line-height:115%;color:#1f497d;"> </span><span style="line-height:115%;color:black;">, </span><span style="line-height:115%;color:#1f497d;">notifying</span><span style="line-height:115%;color:black;"> parents of the opportunity to refer their child for screening.

Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000th Student!!http://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=975Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000th Student!!2018-12-03T15:52:38Z<div class="ExternalClass5A748F759DCB42329829082C02EE7D43"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Expecting to end the year with an enrollment of 80,000 students, or fairly close to it, Katy Independent School District has reached this monumental milestone two months prior to the end of 2018.  Davidson Elementary third-grader Christopher Morcos was the lucky student.  He never expected his first week of school to be such an unforgettable experience.  Christopher received a warm welcome by Superintendent Lance Hindt and other district officials.  He was also recognized with several Century of Legacy gifts to celebrate the meaningful occasion.  The celebration comes precisely when Katy ISD is commemorating 100 years of educational excellence. </span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"We are very excited about the continued growth here in Katy ISD.  It is always great to welcome students and families to the proud traditions and exciting future here in Katy ISD," said Dr. Vonda Washington, assistant superintendent for school leadership and support.  "Gaining our 80,000 student while celebrating a legacy of 100 years dedicated to learning is remarkable," added Washington. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Though Christopher was born in America this will be his first time attending a school in the United States.  Just this week, the Morcos family moved from Egypt to Katy, Texas. For them, finding a good school home for their son was a top priority.  "I did my research and everyone recommended Katy ISD as the best school district," said Peter Morcos, Christopher's father.  "We decided to move into Katy and look for a house in this area so that we are able to go to a Katy ISD school," added Morcos.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">It's been no secret that families are moving west of Houston into what was known as a small suburb.  Communities zoned to the district have been flourishing at outstanding rates making Katy ISD one of the fastest growing school district, not just in Texas, but in the nation.  The quality of education offered in Katy ISD classrooms has attracted families from all parts of the world to what is now being called a destination school district.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://youtu.be/hy4wlNcTpIg" title="Katy ISD Reaches Historical Milestone of Enrolling 80,000 Students!"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/110918_KDE_80000%20Student%20in%20Katy%20ISD.jpg" alt="110918_KDE_80000 Student in Katy ISD.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:393px;" /></a><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ugakv368u3txdq2/AAD8v6dOSjy4DCep3cH0TjJ4a?dl=0">Photo gallery of 80,000th student celebration for newscasts and publications.</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>

Katy ISD was the largest school district, with close to 80,000 students to receive this grade.  Just recently Niche, an educational data analysis site, also announced their "Top 10 Public Elementary Schools in the Houston Area" and Katy ISD took all 10 spots, plus an additional six.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Providing exceptional instruction and learning, as well as a safe and secure environment, is a process that involves great teachers, parents, school staff, administrators, mentors, volunteers, businesses, parent support groups, along with local and state governments," said Board of Trustees President Courtney Doyle.</p><p><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f8dixb0tfkx3op7/AAA_B7B_DB9EUauao-sXZwlaa?dl=0">Photo Gallery of State of the District Event</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>

efficiently serve you while providing for enhanced safety and security, we now have a delivery drop off table in the front vestibule.  If you are dropping off an item for your child, you no longer have to enter the building.  Instead, please fill out a delivery slip and leave it on the table with the item in the front vestibule.  One of our Watch DOG dads or an office staff member will deliver the item to your student.</p><hr style="margin:20px

standards each year, we continue to place 3<span style="font-size:12px;line-height:0;vertical-align:baseline;top:-0.5em;">rd</span> while others change.  We are systemically improving our performance overall!  We don’t strive for recognition.  We simply strive to do what we believe.  In other words…have integrity.  We want <span style="text-decoration:underline;">ALL</span> our students to show a full year’s growth this year.  Oh!  WCE is also in the top 0.4% in the NATION!  That’s smaller than half a percent!  Way to go!</span></p><hr style="margin:20px
