Note from Mrs. Garrison: We hope everyone enjoys spending time with their family and friends next week! Stay safe and have a fantastic spring break!
Safety: We understand mornings can be stressful. It is imperative that we do our best to keep our students safe. If dropping your child off by car in the morning, please do not bypass the car line to park and walk children in through the car line. This not only slows car line down as they wait for pedestrians but also puts those pedestrians in danger. Also, please be mindful of your speed in the parking lot and remember that cell phone usage in a car line is against the law.
Thank you for your help on this important matter.

Youth Art Month: In order to celebrate Art Education and the fine work produced by the Conroe Independent School District visual art students, the art teachers of our district are hosting a student exhibit at all three of the Montgomery County Libraries. We are thrilled to announce that Logan O’Brien (3rd – Anderson), Anais Gonzales-Nagels (3rd – Anderson), Jack Tresaugue (3rd – Falast) and Neha Nair (4th – Beach) have artwork that has been chosen to be part of this year’s Youth Art Month Student Exhibit at the Mitchell Public Library from March 4th through March 30th.
