Parent Letter - August 2017

August 11, 2017

Dear Tipps’ Tiger Families,

Can you believe that our summer is almost finished and it is about time to return to school? I am so excited to welcome back our students in just a few short weeks for another wonderful year full of fun, learning and growing.

This year our theme is “Change Starts with Me” and we know that each student will have changed in some ways during these past few months. We are looking forward to the changes that each student will continue to make as they grow in their learning this year.
Below you will see a list of important dates that you will want to mark on your calendar as we begin the 2017-18 school year.

  • New Student Registration - August 15-18 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • Thursday, August 24th is “Meet The Teacher”
    • Short PreK, Kindergarten Orientation in the cafeteria at 4:00 PM
    • PreK, Kindergarten, PPCD, Life Skills – 4:00 – 5:30 PM
    • Grades 1-5 – 5:30 – 7:00 PM

  • August 28th – First Day of School
    •  Doors will open at 8:15 AM – only on first day of school (Parents will not be able to walk students to their classrooms.)
    • Dismissal will begin at 4:00 PM – Expect delays during the first week of school.
    • Student drop off starts at 8:25 am for car riders after first day of school.
    • Pre-Kindergarten Students – AM (8:45 – 11:50); PM (12:50 – 4:00)
    • All Students will be served breakfast. Students in Grades 1-5 will have Grab and Go Breakfast; Prekindergarten, Kindergarten and PPCD will have breakfast in the Cafeteria each morning. PM Pre-Kindergarten students will be served lunch upon arrival.
  • School Supplies and Spirit Shirts (new design) will be on sale during Meet the Teacher. (CASH only for School Supplies. Spirit T-shirts can be purchased using School Cash payment system.)
  • All School events will continue to be scheduled on Tuesday evenings this year.

One of our goals this year is to improve student attendance including tardies. All parents bringing their children to school by car will be required to park and come in to the office if arrival is at 8:45 or later. Our instruction will begin promptly at 8:45 each morning, so it is critical to have your child at school before that time.

As we embrace our theme “Change Starts with Me”, we want to let you know that our campus is now providing school event information via several electronic methods ONLY. Please take time to update your School Messenger contact information (Cell phone, home phone, email address) so that you are able to receive these notifications. The “Tipps Times” newsletter will be posted on our school website. The first newsletter will be the only paper copy for this school year.

I am extremely excited about the upcoming year and the possibilities that are in store for our students and staff. We are here to help your child succeed. If we can assist you in anyway, please contact the school at 281-345-3350. I can wait to see all our TIGER Leaders soon!
