Weekly Parent Letter for Tuesday, February 7th

Branch Elementary

Weekly Parent Letter

February 7, 2017

 

Dear Branch Families,

 

Valentine’s Day Parties will be held on Tuesday, February 14th. You will receive more information from your child’s teacher. The party times are listed on the calendar below.  

 

If your child is in the 5th grade, we have regrouped students based on their academic needs from the spring benchmark until we take the STAAR Reading and Math tests on March 28th and 29th.

 

The 107th day of school (Tuesday, February 14th), we will dress like the 2000s because Mrs. Bruner graduated in 2007. On the 129th day of school, we will dress like what we think high school seniors will dress like in 2029 because that is the year that this year’s Kindergarten students will graduate from high school.

 

The 2017-2018 student transfer application is open from February 1st until March 10th at 5:00pm.

To access the application, go to the Bryan ISD website – Parents/Students – Student Administration/Transfers.

Transfers must be done EVERY school year. Only students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible for student transfers.

 

Also on Thursday, February 23rd will be our Spring Open House. It is a come and go Open House from 5:00-6:30. Report cards will be available that evening and you will have a chance to look at work/activities that your child has selected to share. We will also have stations with academic activities available for you to do with your children. We hope that you will be able to stop by and join us!!!!

 

You can Be the One by…. work on reading with your child or asking them to read to you for 20 minutes a day. Ask your child to tell you what each page/chapter was mostly about and see who their favorite character of the book is and why.

 

If there is anything that I can do for you, then please feel free to contact me at karen.kaspar@bryanisd.org or you can leave a message at 209-2900 and I will get back with you.

 

Be the one!

Karen Kaspar
