Welcome to Markham Elementary! 

We are Happy Campers!

At Markham Elementary, we love our students, and our entire staff encourages of each and every one of them throughout the school year!  Ware dedicated to our students and strive to provide differentiated lessons by incorporating our awesome technology with creative, interactive, hands-on lessons in small groups. All of our students receive in-school tutorials for 45 minutes every day in small groups for reading and math.  Selected students also receive reading and math tutorials in small groups after school: Kinder-2nd 3:00-3:30pm--all year, and 3rd-5th 3:30-4:45 with snack included--closer to STAAR testing time.

Parents, have a question or concern?  Want to stay "in the loop?" Communication is always open with our staff. We can be reached by email, ClassDojo messages, phone, or a face-to-face conference. We also love to brag on our terrific students! We share pictures of them and the great things they're doing through ClassDojo as well as our Markham Elementary Facebook page. Please take part in these beneficial tools! If you need help signing up, please let us know!

Good attendance is important for academic success! Students are learning throughout the day, so try to make it a priority to have your children here on time and for the full day. If your child is absent, please send a written note the day they are able to return to school. Please be aware: three unexcused absences result in truancy and can be punishable by up to a $500.00 fine.

Snacks are available for all students to purchase through our cafeteria. Snacks and extra entree items will not be charged to your child's account. They must have funds available in their account. If they exceed 5 charges they will be served an alternative lunch consisting of peanut butter & jelly, fruit, and milk.

Thank you for your cooperation!!  This is in place for the safety of all our students.

Attention Parents: Changes Effective November 21, 2016

A new system will be implemented for the safety of all students and staff members. Beginning Monday, November 21, 2016, a photo ID will need to be presented to the front office at each visit. The ID will be scanned and a visitor tag will be printed to be worn at all times while on campus. This process will only take a few minutes. When you attend an event on campus, please keep this in mind and plan accordingly. 

Acceptable forms of identification are: state driver’s license, state identification card, or a passport.

Our front door is unlocked from 7:15-3:45. All visitors must sign in during these hours.
