SURVEY SAYS....


Please take a few minutes to complete these surveys for FWISD, Lily B, and PTA.



Summer Learning and Next School Year Survey

FWISD is conducting a survey about summer learning opportunities, returning to in-person instruction next school year, and increasing learning opportunities for students. It doesn’t take long, but you are prompted to take it for each student in FWISD. You’ll need their student ID(s).

Here’s a link to the survey.



BrightBytes Technology Survey

The goal of the BrightBytes survey is to gather data on technology access, skills, and technology environment, and to better understand the connection between technology use and student achievement on our campus. This is also an opportunity for parents to express their opinions about the Chromebooks that were recently rolled out. The survey link is unique to Lily B. parents. The survey will run through April 30th.

Here is the link to the BrightBytes survey.


School of Excellence Survey

The Lily B. PTA is participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students. National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators, and teachers at the beginning and the end of the process. The first survey, deployed in fall 2019, helped PTA and school leaders understand areas in which improvements are needed. This included more broadly communicating opportunities to plan for transitions to sixth grade and greater efforts to inform and encourage families to advocate for students on the school, local, state or national level. Through the Hive, Facebook announcements, breakout sessions after PTA meetings, and regular communication between PTA, school leaders, and parents we have worked to address these challenges this school year.

Please take a few minutes to reflect on your experiences at Lily B. and complete this survey in English or in Spanish.



Thank you in advance!


5th GRADE SIGNS

New this year, every 5th grader will receive a generic yard sign with their name displayed in front of the school for the month of June that they can take home on the last day of school. This is your opportunity to UPGRADE and CUSTOMIZE your graduating 5th grader's sign. Custom 18X24 inch sign with pictures, words of inspiration, or whatever you choose are available to purchase here.

PURCHASE FREE DAYS IN LIEU OF CLIPPING BOX TOPS


A Free Dress link is up in the School Store. Pay $10 for the remaining Free Dress days this school year. Or if you are cutting Box Tops, please send them with your student to school. Thank you for helping our school PTA in this fun way for our kids!

We've had a lot going on in our world lately! Between the recent winter storms, power and water outages, and the pandemic, it's normal for your child to be feeling overwhelmed or stressed. Here are some simple ways to help them calm down or de-stress:

  • Go outside and run or kick a ball around.

  • Listen to music or sing a song. Close your eyes and think of a calm place.

  • Draw a picture.

  • Read a book.

  • Write a letter or story.

  • Talk to someone.

  • Ask for a hug.

The FWISD Family Resources Centers can connect you with counseling or mental health resources for your child. If you're interested, contact me for more information.
