ONLINE FAMILY DIRECTORY ACCESS
Getting access to the online Directory is easy!
Step 1: Enter or confirm your data:
New Families: Click HERE and follow the instructions to enter your family into the online family directory. We do NOT enter your family's information for you except in limited circumstances. If you cannot enter your information, contact Cara Kennemer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-501-9331 and request a written form to be sent home with your child. You can enter data from a mobile device!
Returning Families: Your access to the directory was cancelled in September for security reasons. To regain access, you must confirm your data and select your child's new teacher. You should have received an email from “Tanglewood Directory” with the link to confirm your data in September. If you can’t locate it, please email email@example.com and request another email. If you don't confirm, you won't be allowed to access the directory. This is a safety feature and is required.
Step 2: Shortly after, you will receive an email with a temporary password allowing access to the directory. Follow the instructions and remember you can download the app as well.

A message from the PTA
Do you have an opinion about funding for Texas schools? Your voice is key to our efforts to pass laws that protect and enhance the lives of the children of Texas, offering educational opportunity to all.
Legislators are more likely to consider your opinions as a constituent than almost any other.
Get in touch with your representative and let them know how you feel about funding for public schools.
To find your Texas State Representative and your Texas State Senator visit http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/.
The most important thing to remember is that your voice is important. You CAN and you DO make a difference when you decide to use your voice. Stay involved!
