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

cafeteria when they go to lunch. 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
