Courtney Anderson
PTA President 2017-2018


The PTA Executive Board will be forming a Project Study Committee to research and advise on how certain PTA dollars are allocated.  The PTA raises money through underwriting, auction, and other fundraising efforts, and serving on the Project Study Committee is a great way to learn about and have a voice in how we direct our PTA funds.  

If you are interested in serving on this committee or would like to nominate someone to serve,
please contact PTA 1st Vice President for Project Study, Corey Marrs (coreymarrs@gmail.com) by TODAY.

Kindergarten World Changers 

The kindergarten world changers are back in action with a book drive for Olsen Elementary in Port Aransas ISD.  Olsen Elementary was left completely devastated after Hurricane Harvey.  The school reopened on October 16th and has a limited number of books for their students.  Kindergarten will be collecting gently used books from October 27 – November 7.  A box for Olsen Elementary will be placed outside of each kindergarten teacher’s door.  Thank you for helping us change the world one book at a time!

“Generation Texas (Gen TX)” Week
 

SBISD is committed to a post secondary focus. The elementary, middle and high schools are working to provide a consistent message to all students that supports the quest for education beyond high school. Part of the District’s 5 plan is T-2- 4, which focuses on technical, 2 yr. community college or a 4 yr college to ensure that we are preparing our students for the future. Even though we are an elementary school, it is never too early to begin the discussion of post secondary education with your students. November 6-10 has been designated as “Generation Texas or Gen TX” Week by the State.

Please take the time during this week to share with your children how or why you chose the college or university you attended. Also please share how or why you chose your major and the role it has played in your profession. In class the teachers will be sharing how or why they chose the
college or university they attended and why they chose education as their major. Students will be encouraged to think and write about what they would like to do post-secondary school.

Students may wear college t-shirts, jackets or shorts any day(s) next week. No baseball caps please.

Dorothy Thompson,
Counselor

If you would like to participate, I am asking that each family submits 3-5 photos of your 5th grader by Friday, November 10th Any photo is welcome as long as your child was of school age at the time it was taken.  Each photo will be roughly the size of a postage stamp on the finished project. Therefore, the larger the face in the photo the better for this project.  Please email your photos to me at leblancmeredith@gmail.com

Spring Branch Education Foundation hosts UnGala to benefit SBISD students


SBEF Strong UnGala 2017 will celebrate the strength of the Spring Branch community on Saturday, November 11. Chairs Becky and Brett Fenn and Kristi and Paul Robishaw redesigned Spring Branch Education Foundation’s annual gala event to toast the area’s amazing care for neighbors while supporting grants and scholarships.

“Priorities have changed since we planned the original gala,” said Kristi Robishaw. “Harvey reminded us that our main interests are families, friends and neighbors. We’re SBEF Strong, and at this UnGala, we’ll celebrate that strength. We’re grateful to everyone who supported the SBEF Harvey Relief Fund to care for student and staff families who were displaced by the storm.”

Becky Fenn agreed. “The UnGala will turn our focus to supporting programs that enhance our students’ education through grants and scholarships.”

The casual evening will include unique Big Board items, casino games, finger foods and dancing. “We’re planning a fun night with great nds and an evening of games, spirits and socializing,” said Debbie Slack SBEF Board event chair.

For the eighth year, HEB has come on board as the event’s Presenting Sponsor. “HEB’s gift of $25,000 each year is indicative of the company’s commitment to Spring Branch ISD’s students,” said Cece Thompson, SBEF executive director.

Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston, at 2222 West Loop South, will be transformed into a casual and low-key club where guests will enjoy cocktails, small bites, casino games and music.

Table sponsorships (seating for 10) are available for $5,000 and $3,000; general admission is $100 (cocktail tables available). Casino chips will be offered at $50 for 25 chips representing $2,500 of play and $100 for 75 chips representing $7,500. Underwriting opportunities are available.
