 The Parkwood Prospect

Pros●pect (n) – anticipation; expectation; a looking forward​

         Thank you for supporting our students and staff during Red Ribbon Week last week.  I know it took patience and energy to navigate the dress-up days, as well as a change in schedule, and we really appreciate you.  Although the week ahead is somewhat busy, it should be more quiet at school.

         This Tuesday, many families will celebrate Halloween; however, it is not a dress-up day at PHIS.  All of our students should dress as they would on a typical school day.  Please remind our bulldogs to keep their costumes, masks, and accessories at home.  The only dress occasion next week will be on Thursday and/or Friday.

         On Thursday, all Amistad students are encouraged to wear red for their house meeting.  Then, on Friday, all of our bulldogs are invited to wear their house colors.  The end of the week also brings the end of our second grading period.

In preparation for grade reporting, you may wish to check the Home Access Center (HAC) for any late or missing assignments your child has not submitted.  Some teachers, depending on the assignment, may be willing to accept it for a grade.  In addition to collecting eligible assignments, our teachers are also collecting permission slips for the upcoming PHIS spelling bee.

Fifth grade tryouts for the PHIS spelling bee will be held in the library on November 8, immediately after school.  Sixth grade tryouts will take place the following day, on November 9.  Only 50 applicants will be accepted per grade level, so interested students are asked to turn in their forms as soon as possible.  More information, including links to the forms, is located in the "Save The Date" section below.

         It is difficult to believe November arrives in a few days, but we're looking forward to a month of gratitude.  We will first honor and thank our veterans on November 10, and then celebrate the Thanksgiving holidays.  Until then, we have a lot to accomplish with our kiddos.  I hope you have a great week ahead!

Giving you my "Bulldog Best, Never Less,"

Brad Tyler, Principal

KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE

Fall Severe Weather Season – As we transition to a season of cooler weather, thunderstorms can affect our afternoon dismissal.  In the event of severe weather, the safety of our students is our top priority.  If lightning or other adverse conditions are present, all outdoor activities cease, including the loading of buses and the release of students.

In the event of a "Severe Weather Dismissal," all students are held in their homeroom class except those whose parents have signed a severe weather waiver.  Throughout the duration of the weather event, non-waiver students remain in their homeroom class unless a parent enters the building, presents appropriate identification, and physically escorts him/her out of the building.  Once the severe weather subsides, students will once again be allowed to exit the building.  If you are interested in more information about Keller ISD's severe weather policy, please click here.

 

GET INVOLVED

Shape Education in Keller ISD - KISD has initiated a visioning process, built on the community's input, to define the district's focus in coming years.  Everyone living in Keller ISD is invited to complete a brief questionnaire, and has the opportunity to volunteer further.  For more information, click here.

Encourage Participation in PTA Reflections Contest - Positive recognition is the focus of "Reflections," and students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression while telling their own story.  This year's theme is "Within Reach," and students can submit original work in the following categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.  A flyer with more details can be found here.
