  • Cypress Families, 

    Congratulations on completing another Owl-Standing year at Cypress Elementary. On behalf of the Cypress school community, we wish our 2019 class continued success in middle school.  To our new families, thank you for choosing Cypress and entrusting us with your precious children. Welcome to our Cypress Family!  

    We definitely had a very productive year with much to celebrate. Accomplishments to celebrate this year include, but not limited to, increased community participation in school events: Curriculum Literacy Night, Multicultural Wax Museum, ESOL Game Night, Kindergarten Round-Up, etc. Additionally, we have completed construction through the S.M.A.R.T Bond dollars on our HVAC system, roof, and media circulation desk. Safety is our #1 priority, new cameras have been installed necessary for the utmost security at all times, with enhanced technology to concentrate on our most important task; Teaching and Learning! Our accomplishments are made possible by our EXTRAordinary families and staff. Thank you for your love, support and loyalty! 

    Summer is here and this is the time students and families look forward to many wonderful events.  Summer activities provide valuable experiences in which children learn about themselves and the world around them. Your child’s life can be enriched through reading and journal writing. Please make sure that your child’s day includes time that is set aside for independent reading. Reading is a “sport” with a 12-month season, so please ensure that your child makes it to “practice” every day. I would like to thank you now for supporting your children with reading this year, and thank you in advance for continuing during the summer. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

    Come Tuesday, August 13th, please join us for our Welcome Back Open House Meet & Greet starting at 8:30am, you will be able to meet your child’s teacher, drop off school supplies and learn about your child’s expectations for the 2019-2020 school year. Please be on the look out for a parentlink with information. The school year officially starts on  Wednesday, August 14th.

    May you refuel this summer vacation with rest, relaxation and recreation as we “Read Today, Lead Tomorrow: We Are the Author’s of Our Success” into the 2019-2020 school year!

    Thank you!
