End of Year Information


End of Year Information

On Monday, May 8th, your child came home with a packet of information including school supply forms, course selection forms, nurse information, “Are You Returning” forms, and list of end of year dates. 

If you have a current 6th or 7th grader, that course selection form is very important and needs to be returned as soon as possible. The course selection forms are very important to our master schedule as some of the high school courses have limited space and are on a first come first serve basis.
The school supply list and end of year packet can also be found on our web page.

Legislative Update: CSA Voices in Austin!

Last week Senate leaders added language to HB 21, Representative Dan Huberty’s school finance bill, that would create a far-reaching Education Savings Account (voucher) program to fund private schools.

The ESA will not effectively support the intended students because many of them live in an area that has no access to private, specialized schools. In addition, creating a voucher program for one set of students diminishes the state’s ability to fully and adequately fund our public schools.  Contact your legislators and urge them to remove this language from the bill. Support ALL Texas public school students and reform our public school finance system without ESA/Vouchers!

Please call your legislators and ask them to support the HOUSE version of HB 21!

Legislators to call:
Governor Greg Abbott, (512) 463-1782
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, (512) 463-5342, (512) 463-0001
Senator Paul Bettencourt, (512) 463-0107, (713) 464-0282
Senator Joan Huffman, (512) 463-0117, (281) 980-3500
Senator John Whitmire, (512) 463-0115, (713) 864-8701
Representative Dwayne Bohac, (512) 463-0727, (713) 460-2800
Representative Jim Murphy, (512) 463-0514, (713) 465-8800
Representative Sarah Davis, (512) 463-0389, (713) 521-4474
Representative Jessica Farrar, (512) 463-0620, (713) 691-6912
