Donor's Choose Project: Stability Balls

My students and I need your help! We wrote a grant for stability balls to replace our traditional classroom chairs! There is lots of research that support the use of stability balls in classrooms to increase student focus and success in learning as well as improve behavior! Any help is greatly appreciated! You can use code SPARK to double your donation up to $100. Please share! Thank you for your support!! #cisdtigers

Hello families! We've had a great week back from Spring Break! It seems like the children grew so much during the 9 days they were out of school! Although I wish the weather would have been a little nicer, I enjoyed the break with my family! We were busy working on baby and house stuff! I enjoyed the time off, but it sure was nice coming back to school, seeing my students, and getting back into a routine!

Take a look at our newsletter for the week! Thursday, April 2nd, students may bring $1.00 to school to donate to Relay for Life.. If your child bring $1.00 they may wear alternative dress on that day. This is for Thursday only. Next Friday, April 3, we have early release! Kindergarten Cap and Gown pictures are scheduled for April 24th! More information about that will be coming your way soon.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Showing off our Technology Skills

Yesterday we got to show off our Aurasma and ChatterPix projects to some visitors on our campus! The children enjoyed showing them their creations and even explained how they did them! The visitors were surprised with the technology use in kindergarten! It's amazing what these kiddos can do!!

Open House

What a great turn out we had for open house!! I enjoyed visiting with everyone and I know the children had a great time showing off their work! All of their work that was in the bulletin board in the hallway will be sent home in a few weeks. I want to keep it up a little longer! I just love our Texas Unit! It's so much fun and their work always turns out extra awesome!! 

Thanks again to everyone that was able to come to open house last night! We hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did!!
