Weekly Parent Letter for Tuesday, May 23rd

Branch Elementary

Weekly Parent Letter

May 23, 2017



Dear Branch Families,


This day always comes around every year…..time for my last letter of the year. I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your support over this past year. I absolutely LOVE watching children learn and watching them interact with others – it is actually fascinating. Thank you for sharing your children and families with me. I wish you well!


And now back to the news of the day….

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!!!


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.


One quick note on next school year…..our doors will open at 7:30; breakfast will start at 7:45. Rayburn and Long will open their doors at 7:30, as well.


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.


Kindergarten, 4th 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.


A NOTE FROM THE CAFETERIA….. Your child may no longer charge meals in the cafeteria. Your child’s account will need to be current through the end of the school year.


INCOMING KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS – please register now for school.


Please refer to the calendar below for the remaining award ceremonies.   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! Enjoy your summer, enjoy your family, and create some wonderful lifelong memories!!!!!
