LET US TAKE THE BURDEN OF REMEMBERING DATES OFF YOUR SHOULDERS, DOWNLOAD THE REMIND APP (CLASS CODE: CYP-PTA) SO YOU DON'T MISS OUT ON ANYTHING!

The Cypress PTA has been busy collecting photos of “PTA Enrichment Application” winners. Mr. Clark was awarded money to fund a mat cutter to help better display our children’s art work which was used extensively for the Monster Art Show last month. Amie LaGow and the ICAP students were awarded money to fund a coffee cart. It is used to serve teachers coffee in order to increase the student's social and monetary skills as well as working on their mathematics. Finally this month we would love to highlight the one teacher that filed for the application. Lindsay Heideman wanted flexible seating in her classroom. Students benefit from the choice of learning space and the ability to move. It gives students a sense of ownership over their learning environment and having students be able to move more freely allows for collaboration and higher engagement.


We are currently gearing up to launch the PTA Enrichment Application for the 2019-2020 school year and would love for interested parties to play a part in helping run this program. As always - THANK YOU to all our contributors who allowed us to make this happen!

As our district continues to be shaped by rapid growth, and it has become necessary to rezone ALL of the middle schools in our district (excepting those feeding into Vandergrift). Plans will be finalized by May. This is not a minor decision and the school board would appreciate input on past zoning experiences as well as desires/hopes going forward.

We strongly encourage you to reach out to the board with suggestions for the rezoning. A link for sending this information can be found under the “Facilities and Operations” button, half-way down the page at https://www.leanderisd.org/letstalk

Additionally, there are many things happening at the Texas Legislature that affect our district, schools, and children. Rally Day at the Capital is February 25th! We have a great day planned, get out and let your voice be heard! https://www.txpta.org/rally-day

Thank you for the support you give your children and our district!

It's a New Year and an opportunity to get connected and involved at Cypress!
