Do you or your student love to bake? Don’t have time to bake, but are willing to grab something extra at the store this week? Please click on the link below and help us provide baked goods for Ridgecrest Elementary (our sister school) Fall Festival Cake Walk Booth this Friday:
The Sister School Solution partners schools within SBISD to help meet some of the needs of students and teachers on other SBISD campuses. Most of these campuses lack a PTA, so we are there to offer assistance as able to the teachers, staff and students. CSA is proud to be partnered with Ridgecrest Elementary (RGE) as our Sister School. The Sister School PTA Chairs will be sending communications throughout the year updating you on our partnership with RGE and how you can help.
If you have any questions please contact CSA’s PTA Sister School Chairs:
2019-20 and 2020-21 school years
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) shifted the testing window for the 2019-202 STAAR test, with testing now scheduled to end on May 21, 2020. This shift, combined with an early Memorial Day weekend, makes ending school prior to Memorial Day in the 2019-2020 unfeasible, as our students would take the STAAR test the last week of school.
Given this new information, the District Improvement Team has developed new draft calendars for the 2019-2020 school year for your review and feedback.
Calendar options for 2019-2020
- Calendar Comparison Chart
Our first round calendar drafts for 2020-2021 did not account for a presidential election day in November 2020. Feedback around safety and security received from parents and staff following the 2016 presidential election, given that our schools are used by Harris County as election polling sites, has led district senior leadership to request that Election Day 2020 be a student holiday.
Thus, we have used the preferred Round I 2020-2021 calendar and created two new options for community consideration, with Nov. 3, 2020, as a student holiday.
