• Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I hope this message finds you well as we embark on the new year. January brings with it a sense of renewal and opportunity, and I am excited to share some updates and important information with you.

    1. New Year, New Goals: As we kick off 2024, let's take a moment to reflect on the achievements of the past year and set our sights on new goals for the months ahead. Our school community has shown resilience and determination, and I am confident that, together, we can make this year even more successful for our students.

    2. Academic Highlights: I am pleased to report that our students continue to work hard and improve academically. Our dedicated teachers and staff are working hard to provide engaging learning environments, and I encourage you to stay informed about your child's education. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teachers. Our teachers provide weekly small group tutoring for targeted students for extra help on Wednesday or Thursday mornings from 8:00am-8:20am. Our teachers have already targeted students and reached to those parents, but if you feel your child needs more help, please reach out to your child's teacher.

    3. Upcoming Events: We have many important dates and activities happening in January. From testing to the end of the 2nd grading period to academic celebrations and always engaging lessons in the classroom, your child will be busy during the month of January here at Yeager!

    4. 5th Grade Celebration: Our 5th Graders will have a special day in May to celebrate their Yeager Journey.  While all 5th grade parents are being sent this message, we also want to extend an opportunity for you to please consider helping sponsor a 5th grader.  The main cost is $25, but any amount to help sponsor a 5th grader is welcome!  This money is being used for all 5th grade students to receive their own 5th Grade T-Shirt, help fund our 5th Grade Celebration Day and Field Trip, and also help provide snacks and treats on this day.  Any sponsorship donation can be completed through School Cash, and will stay open until April 30th.  Thank you so much for your consideration in helping us celebrate and give our 5th graders their special day as they end their elementary school careers. 

    5. Weather Precautions: As we navigate through the winter months, please be aware of any weather-related announcements. The safety of our students is our top priority, and any necessary updates or changes to the school schedule will be communicated promptly.

    6. Community Involvement: I encourage parents to actively participate in our school community. Whether it's volunteering, attending school events, or joining our VIPS, your involvement has a significant impact on the overall educational experience for our students.

    7. Code of Conduct and Student Handbook Feedback: Its that time of year to get feedback on our Code of Conduct and Student Handbook.  Use the two different links to provide any feedback to our CFISD District.

    English: 2023-2024 Code of Conduct and Student Handbook Feedback Form
    Spanish: 2023-2024 Codigo de Conducta/Manual del Estudiante Formulario

    Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Together, we can make the rest of this year a memorable and successful one for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!

    Wishing you a wonderful start to 2024!  #TogetherWeSwarm!
