4th Grade Writing STAAR – Closed Campus


STAAR Makeup Testing


3rd Grade Field Trip


CISD Early Childhood Resource Fair


Note from Mrs. Garrison: Fourth Graders will be participating in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) administration on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. Students will be taking the Writing portion of the test. We would like to remind parents that our campus will be closed to all visitors and parent volunteers on Tuesday, March 28th. To provide an optimal testing environment for our students we ask that you do not come for lunch or ask to visit a classroom. If it is necessary for you to bring something to your child or pick up your child early, those needs will be taken care of in the front office. Please make sure that your children get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast, and arrive to school on time for the test. The test will begin promptly in the morning, and the students will be allowed four hours to test. Our Powell students will do a great job on STAAR. Thank you so much for your help and support! If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 936-709-1700.

CISD Job Fair: Conroe ISD will host its annual Professional Job Fair Saturday, April 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at The Woodlands College Park High School. See the Conroe ISD website or use this link for more information.


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.
