    November is here!  With the cold weather, we have an abundance of lost and found coats.  Please be sure and check the lost and found for any lost coats. 

     

    If you have extra coats that no longer fit your students we have started our Coats for Kids drive and contest. Bring used coats for donations to the Coats for Kids project.

    Parents, I need your assistance.  We have had over 1,000 tardies in the first 47 days of school.  Tardies and absences can adversely affect a student's learning.  Please assist us in making sure your student arrives no later than 7:40 am. 

     

    Information about Grand Avenue Parkway Construction 

    The City of Pflugerville will rehabilitate and reconstruct the pavement along Grand Avenue Parkway from Pflugerville Parkway to the city limits near Viki Lynn Place.  This work will be accomplished in two major phases over the next 90 days, weather permitting.  Phase 1 begins south of Pflugerville Parkway and ends just north of the Gilleland Creek bridge.  The second phase will complete the job from south of the bridge to Viki Lynn Place.  Each phase will require that all traffic be moved to one side of the roadway, with a single lane being provided for each direction at all times.

     

    This work will begin the week of November 6th.  Phase 1 is expected to be completed by mid-December, weather permitting.  Once activities in the Phase 1 area are completed, traffic patterns north of Black Locust will return to their current conditions.  During this same time, the City will also be completing the construction of a new traffic signal at the Grand Avenue Parkway and Black Locust Drive intersection. 

     

    The City encourages drivers to slow down and use extra caution in all construction zones, but especially in construction zones near schools.  If PfISD staff or any students’ parents have questions, please contact the City’s project manager, Chad Wood, at chadw@pflugervilletx.gov or 512-990-6341.

    Nominations for the Gifted and Talented Program are being accepted between October 23 and November 3. All students, K-11, can be nominated. Nomination forms will be available in the office and on the district website during this time period. Nomination forms must be completed and returned to the school counselor by November 3rd at 3:00 p.m. – late forms will be placed in next year’s screening window.

    It has been a great start to the school year.  It is great to see everyone return as well as our new students.

     

    Please see the flyers about our efforts to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey 

    Hurricane Harvey Relief

     

     

    The doors to the campus open at 7:00 am. Students arriving before that time are not supervised.

    Opening at 7:00 am allows extra time for students to get breakfast if needed.  Breakfast is free for all students. 

     

    Beginning the week of September 11, 2017, we will try all cars turning right as they exit the CWES parking lot onto Picadilly. The ultimate goal will be to increase efficiency and safety for student pick-up so that we have fewer parents parking on both sides of Picadilly and walking across without the aid of the crossing guard. The crossing guards are not authorized to direct traffic. 

     

    Right Only

     

    A reminder is that if you wish to drop off your student in the morning please use the car drop off line only.  Otherwise, you are welcome to park in the parking lot and walk them to the crosswalk. 

     

     

    Below are some dates you need to be aware of.

    Happy New Year!

     

    It is great to see everyone return. As a reminder our lost and found is filling up quickly with jackets, coats, and gloves.  With colder weather in the forecast please check the lost and found if your student is missing anything.  Lost and found is located in the cafeteria. 

     

    If your child is in need of a winter coat and there are limited resources available please contact Ms. Reyes (karen.reyes@pfisd.net) the school counselor.  We have some resources and may be able to help.
