2014-15 District Calendar (PDF)

Ice Day Make-up Day
We are required to make up the day schools were closed due to impending inclement weather. During the EISD Board meeting on Wednesday, the Board decided that make- up day will be next Friday, April 3. This day was originally a student and staff holiday. SCHOOL WILL BE IN SESSION NEXT FRIDAY, APRIL 3. Many of you already made plans for that day. Some of you will participate in religious observances. A written note explaining the absence due to Religious Observance is required to make the absence “excused”. An absence for a Religious Observance does not count against the district for state funding purposes. That note helps us all.
STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) Season Begins
Next week our 4th grade students will participate in the two-day STAAR Writing assessment. 5th Grade students will take the Reading assessment. Thus begins a season of STAAR assessment activities for our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Staff and some students can be engaged in this requirement into July. Other major testing dates are April 20, 21 and 22 for 3rd- 5th Math, 3rd and 4th Reading and 5th Science. Make-ups and re-tests can occur in May, June and possibly July. We try very hard to minimize the disruptions to the entire school these assessments create. But there will be disruptions. Detailed and specific accommodations for a variety of testing requirements cause an “all hands on deck” staffing distribution which may disrupt normal schedules for many students. Bottom line, all we ask of Bridge Point students is what we ask of them every minute of their time on campus: “Do your best.”
Superintendent Address at the Booster Club Meeting
Dr. Leonard and at least one EISD Board Member will attend the Booster Club meeting this Wednesday at 11:30 in the Library. They will provide an information session and respond to questions regarding the upcoming May 9 Bond Election. Please join us. Accurate information strengthens our community and Dr. Leonard’s presentation will greatly contribute to the effort of getting the facts straight.
I need your help. Bridge Point’s annual Kindergarten Round-Up is Thursday, April 9 at 9:00 AM in the Bridge Point Cafeteria. This begins our intake of new Bridge Point kindergarten students and initiates the registration process. An orientation to our Kindergarten program and introduction to our Bridge Point school community are primary objectives of the meeting. The Round-Up provides us key information regarding enrollment and staffing. I know you know about the Kindergarten Round-Up but your neighbor with a child who will be five-years-old by September 1, 2015 or a friend new to Eanes may not. Spread the word! Thanks for your help.
Read It All! Especially the Read-a-Thon Summary!
In an effort to provide a cleaner presentation of all the school related info that flows through this site, multiple links of possible interest follow my weekly letter to you. A special one I hope you open today is the summary of Bridge Point’s annual participation and accomplishment in the BookSpring Read-a-Thon. Take a look and smile.
