What’s Happening

Round Rock ISD has launched InfoCenter, an all-in-one tool for families to manage District and campus communication.  InfoCenter organizes and centralizes various campus and District communications such as principal emails, attendance notifications/phone messages, District e-news, Peachjar flyers, PTA updates, health news and more. Parents/guardians have the option to tailor how they receive communications.
Learn more about and sign up for InfoCenter on the District website. https://roundrockisd.org/infocenter/

Morning Assemblies
Friday, October 28th is the student recognition assembly for PreK-2nd grade in the cafeteria from 7:40 – 7:50 am.  Each teacher will nominate a student to recognize at the assembly.  Parents will be notified by the classroom teacher by Wednesday, October 26th.  Families are welcome to attend!

OTE Annual Book Character Day
We are excited to announce that our school will host our Annual Book Character Day on Monday, October 31st!   Children may dress as a character from a story with whom they are able to make a text-to-self connection. This means your child can link something about the book character to his/her life and experiences. This book needs to be in your child’s book box at school, a book from home, or a book read by the teacher to the class.

Please work with your child to plan a simple homemade costume…no need to purchase one! Just do your best to gather an assortment of hats, clothing, or other props to create a homemade costume. Face and hair paint, blood, masks, weapons or scary characters are not permitted.

Kindergarten will host a parade at 8:00 am for all students to enjoy! We encourage our kindergarten families to attend. We look forward to an exciting day of fun book characters from some really amazing books!
