Thank You Cheryl McIntyre – Our Pottery Cesit Teacher


The PTA would like to send a special Thanks and Bon Voyage

Cheryl has been running our pottery cesit with endless energy and devotion

Thanks so much Cheryl!
You have been a great asset to our school and our kids!

Help Wanted: Chess Coach

“Fried liver,” “queen’s gambit,” “castlling”–do these phrases ring a bell for you? Would you like to help increase the ranks of our chess team? Then we need you!
The CSA Chess Team is looking for a chess coach to teach interested students how to play, to help more experienced players develop their game, and to increase student interest in local chess tournaments. We have a sponsor for the chess club, and we have a chess parent to supervise the team at tournaments. But we need you to help us build our chess skills.
This opportunity will start at the beginning of the 2018/19 school year, and volunteers must be registered for CSA with SBISD. If you are interested, please contact Jean Tanner for more details.

Library News

The Teen Library Council is organizing a book swap for the entire school. If your child has gently used middle school appropriate books in his or her collection that they would like to bring in to be able to exchange for other books, that would be great! For each book your child (up to a total of 5) brings, they will be eligible to swap for the same number of other books to read. We want to encourage you to help your child do some spring cleaning of their bookshelf and join in the fun. They can bring their books to the library for the next two weeks and then we will conduct the swap in May.
