Weekly Parent Letter for Tuesday, May 16th

Branch Elementary

Weekly Parent Letter

May 16, 2017


Dear Branch Families,

If your child has medication in the nurse’s office, then please be sure that you pick it up on or before the last day of school. Thanks!!!


Summer School information for Kindergarten – 5th grade has been sent home. Please return it as soon as possible. Please contact your child’s teacher or me for more information or if you have any questions.


If you know of an incoming Kindergarten student, then please encourage them to register for school NOW. We are always looking to enroll as many children as possible, so that we can plan for the upcoming school year.   Our Transition to Kindergarten night is scheduled for Thursday, May 18th at 5:30 in the Library.


Kindergarten and 5th grade GRADUATIONS – A couple of notes that I will keep in my letter for a few weeks.

  1. We will keep the cafeteria doors closed while we are setting up chairs and decorations for the graduations.
  2. If you want siblings, cousins, or other family members to attend the graduations that are students at Branch, you will need to check them in and out of class through the FRONT OFFICE. Students will not just be sent to graduations with a note.
  3. If you are taking your child home with you after graduation, then you need to check them out through the FRONT OFFICE.

ALSO….. please be sure that you do not double park in the driveways.


As we are wrapping up the school year and getting ready for next year, if you are not returning to Branch AND ARE CURRENTLY ZONED TO BE HERE NEXT YEAR and are in grades Kindergarten – 3rd grade, then please see Mrs. Cain or Mrs. Burns so that they can take care of withdrawal paperwork. If you are rezoned to another Bryan ISD campus, then there is nothing that you need to do at this time. We are sending your child’s folder to their new campus.


During our final weeks of school we will also recognize students for perfect attendance, citizenship, and honor roll. Please see the calendar below for specific dates. All awards will take place during morning meeting.


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


Be the one!

Karen Kaspar
