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><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></li></ul><hr /><p><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/229777/files/7874441/download?wrap=1" alt="HLSR " data-api-endpoint="https://katyisd.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/229777/files/7874441" data-api-returntype="File" style="display:block;margin:5px;" /></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Yearbook Ads for Sale</strong></span></p><table border="0"><tbody><tr><td><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/229777/files/7874442/download?wrap=1" alt="Yearbook Ad" data-api-endpoint="https://katyisd.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/229777/files/7874442" data-api-returntype="File" style="margin:5px;" /></td><td>Yearbook ads are on sale now.  We offer 2 size ads, 1/8 page, and 1/4 page.  Sales end 2/16/19, don't miss out on this lasting memory.

It’s like the quote from Mahatma Gandhi, "The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others."</p><p>Please help us kick off this month’s trait by wearing blue on <strong>Wednesday, February 6, 2019</strong>. Below are some great activities that you can do to encourage and help build service.</p><p><strong>BE IT:</strong></p><p>One way that we can discover how we are important to others is through work. Maybe your child isn’t ready to put in an 8-hour day at the office (who is!?), but he or she can still do significant work that will help your family and others. From taking out the trash, to doing dishes, folding laundry, or lending a hand to the neighbor, there are age-appropriate tasks that all kids can do. Doing this work will make them feel important, needed, and connected to others. So don’t miss it. This month, look for work that develops independent habits in your child.</p><p>This month, choose one volunteer opportunity that your family would like to partake in. Options might include volunteering at the local senior center to serve a meal, volunteering at your church or simply picking up trash around the local park. Lending a hand to help someone else is always a good idea and can be made a priority this month.</p><p><strong>Book Suggestions on Service</strong>:</p><p><em>Rescue and Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship</em> by Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes (1-5)</p><p><em>Diana’s White House Garden</em> by Elisa Lynn Carbone (K-5)</p><p><em>The One Day House</em> by Julia Durango (K-3)</p><p><em>Marvelous Cornelius: Hurricane Katrina and the Spirit of New Orleans</em> by Phil Bildner (K-3)</p><p><em>Little Elliot, Big City</em> by Mike Curato (PreK – 1)</p><p><em>Shoeshine Girl</em> by Robert Clyde Bulla (3-5)</p><p><em>Sprout Helps Out</em> by Rosie Winstead (K-3)</p><p><em>How to Heal a Broken Wing</em> by Bob Graham (K-2)</p><p><em>The Secret School</em> by Avi (3-6)</p><p><em>Washday</em> by Eve Bunting (K-3)</p><p><em>A Symphony of Whales</em> by Steve Schuch (1-5)</p><p><em>The Mitten Tree</em> by Candice Christiansen (K-2)</p><p><em>The Cats in Krasinski Square</em> by Karen Hesse (3-5)</p><p><em>“I Have a Little Problem,” Said the Bear</em> by Heinz Janisch (K-2)</p><p><em>Elmer and the Butterfly</em> by David McKee (K-2)</p><p><em>Amelia Bedelia Helps Out</em> by Peggy Parish (K-3)</p><p><em>Can I Help?</em> By Marilyn Janovitz (PreK-1)</p><p><em>The Curious Garden</em> by Peter Brown (K-3)</p><p><em>Lost and Found Cat: The True Story of Kunkush’s Incredible Journey</em> by Doug Kuntz (K-5)</p><p> </p><p><strong>Try these links for great video suggestions about Service:</strong></p><p><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=QTwg3_%20hA7gU">Service Character Trades</a></p><p><a href="http://youtube.com/%20watch?v=aXTX88WKHaE">Sesame Street: Gina Explains Service Dogs</a></p><p><a href="http://youtube.com/%20watch?v=4z7gDsSKUmU">Kid President- How To Change The World (a work in progress)</a></p><p><a href="http://youtube.com/%20watch?v=ggnYV8l97_g&%20index=14&list=PLmz_w%20GXjX0HTa49VHrfOzU7Kf4%20k8BRgcU">A Story About Service</a></p><p><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=L_%20MWpvMm5tk">What is Community Service?</a></p><p><strong>Please contact Fe Cooper (<a href="mailto:fecooper@katyisd.org">fecooper@katyisd.org</a>), school counselor,  if you would like additional resources.</strong></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/230571/files/8072797/download?wrap=1" alt="Guard Clinic" width="393" data-api-endpoint="https://katyisd.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/230571/files/8072797" data-api-returntype="File" height="516" style="margin:5px;" /></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>2017-2018 WCE Federal Report Card</strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12pt;">Katy ISD is sharing information about the state, district and your child’s campus as part of our obligations under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).

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><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></li></ul><hr /><p><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/230571/files/7874371/download?wrap=1" alt="HLSR " data-api-endpoint="https://katyisd.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/230571/files/7874371" data-api-returntype="File" style="display:block;margin:5px;" /></p><hr /><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Yearbook Ads for Sale</strong></span></p><table border="0"><tbody><tr><td><img src="https://katyisd.instructure.com/courses/230571/files/7874321/download?wrap=1" alt="Yearbook Ad" data-api-endpoint="https://katyisd.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/230571/files/7874321" data-api-returntype="File" style="margin:5px;" /></td><td>Yearbook ads are on sale now.  We offer 2 size ads, 1/8 page, and 1/4 page.  Sales end 2/16/19, don't miss out on this lasting memory.
