Mentors make a one-school-year commitment and meet with their students each week, on campus, during the school day, during the school year.  KEYS survey results show that on average 88% of KEYS students increased grades, 79% decreased absences and 88% decreased discipline referrals.</div><div><br></div><div>Over its 20-year-history, thousands of mentors have changed the trajectory of their KEYS student’s lives.  When school began, hundreds of Katy ISD students were waiting for a mentor of their own.  If you have ever thought about becoming a mentor, or if you are already a KEYS mentor, please join us at the KEYS Kickoff.  Please <a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6KMWQRH">RSVP online​</a> today. For more information please contact Heather Sanders at 281.396.2468, or heatherasanders@katyisd.org.​</div><div></div></div>

Academy sessions are supplemental to campus-based programs and initiatives, selected based on expressed need, in response to concerns that we see on our campuses and in our community.</p><p>The first session, "Emotional Well-being and Referral Processes," is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 2018, at Legacy Stadium from 6:00PM-8:00PM, with capacity for 325 attendees. This is the first of eleven Legacy Parent Academy sessions planned for the 2018-2019 school year. Five of the academy sessions focus on social-emotional learning topics and six focus on academic topics. The schedule for the year is attached.</p><p>Please visit the Legacy Parent Academy webpage to review session descriptions and register for the first session!</p><p>Please visit the <a href="/parents/Pages/Legacy-Parent-Academy.aspx">Legacy Parent Academy webpage, </a> which includes session descriptions and a link to register for the first session, for more details!</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Katy ISD's Focus on Safety</strong></p><p>A safe learning environment for all Katy ISD students and staff is our  top priority.  Throughout this school year, you will see an increased focus on building awareness and enhancing systems that support both the physical and emotional well-being of all our children.  This includes our video series on bullying prevention and intervention.  Check out our latest video, "<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMr2Y8ykKrU">What Does Bullying Look Like?</a>."  More information about policies and procedures related to bullying can be found <a href="/students/Pages/Bullying.aspx">here</a>.</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Arrival Safety</strong></p><p>The safety of all students is a priority at WoodCreek Elementary.  Unfortunately it is often observed that students are arriving in the staff parking lot or crossing Wooded Hollow beyond the crosswalk in the mornings.  Please know that these areas are not part of the arrival plan because they are dangerous and put students' safety at risk.  Parking cars on Wooded Hollow also blocks the kindergarten loop used by daycare and students with special needs which causes delays for those participating in arrival appropriately.  Help us ensure the safety of all students by using the car drop off line at the front of the school unless you are parking in the staff parking lot to attend a scheduled meeting.</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Read Deed Run</strong></p><p>Read, Deed, and Run is an exciting, all encompassing program for the WHOLE child. Students in grades 4 & 5 who commit RDR will complete to a 25 week program in which they will read 26 books (or 2600 pages), perform 26 good deeds in the community, and run a total of 26.2 miles.  Every other week the club will meet to discuss books, deeds, stretching, nutrition, and run 1 mile under the supervision of WCE teachers and administrators.  The program will culminate in May when the students run their final 1.2 miles in a "race" to earn their Finisher's t-shirt and medal.
