SEE Families,

Have you noticed how much your children have grown this year? They have grown physically, and the evidence is that maybe the clothes they wore in August are already small, but they have also grown academically, and we have much evidence of this. 

Our SPARKS are shining! Thanks to you who give them all the support they need at home. Our teachers have done an exceptional job because they are committed to providing an excellent education. Thanks to families’ teamwork with our teachers and SEE staff, we will continue to achieve the goals.

Maybe it has crossed your mind that there are many tests that your children must perform (MAP, EOM, CA1, among others), and believe me, we understand that this can cause your children to feel nervous or anxious about the results. We are counting down to the STAAR test; there is no need to fear; we will achieve it.

Today, I would like to offer some recommendations to continue on this growth path, considering what your children need to feel confident and prepared.

  1.  Your child needs to attend classes regularly.
  2. Stay on top of your child's progress.
  3. Review lessons daily, even when there are no assignments.
  4. Food and sleep are essential. Sleeping well is vital to learning. Our brain learns best when it receives the food and hours of sleep it needs.
  5. Always encourage your children. Remind them that they can achieve their goals. Offer words of daily affirmation.
  • “You can.”
  •  We are proud of you.”
  •  “You're smart.”
  • “You are unique.”
  • “You're going to make it.”
  • Value everything you have strived for; small steps lead us to success.”

Families do not hesitate; your children are growing and learning. Help your children feel confident in themselves. At SEE, we are here to serve you.

Athletics Interest Family Survey

Matt McMahan – Resident Principal


We are excited to announce that we will continue our athletics program next year and there are going to be some updates to how the program is run. In order to ensure families, have an opportunity to provide input and feedback about the athletics program, we are rolling out a survey for families to gauge your interest around a few key details to the program. We will also link the elementary athletics guide for your review.

Key Points:

  • There will be tryouts next year for all sports. Teams will be selected. If we have enough interest and enough coaches.
  • Next year will be a competitive sports program playing against other YES Prep elementary campuses.
  • There will be a fee for students that are selected for teams to cover referee, travel and uniform costs.

At this time we are only gathering interest. Closer to the end of the school year we will post more information and a point of contact for any questions or concerns.

Every Minute Counts

Families every minute counts when it comes to growing our Sparks and ensuring they are achieving at their fullest potential. We want to maximize the minutes students are in school and we need your help to do so. Students need to be in school every day possible. We understand that illness is not within your control; however, we want to make sure our Sparks all the other days. Also, when your student consistently arrives late or leaves early, they are missing key foundational knowledge.


Handicap Parking

Please do not park in the reserved handicap parking at the front of the school if you do not have a placard or license plate that allows you to do so. This includes morning drop off and afternoon dismissal. You may receive a citation from law enforcement if you are found parking in one of the spots.



Excused Absences & Submission of Notes

Families are now able to upload student absences and excuse notes into Skyward for approval. Please review this video that details the process.

YES Prep Public Schools defines excused absences as absences due to one or more of the following:

  • Illness
  • Medical/dental-related, including appointments
  • Bereavement/Funeral for immediate family members
  • Absences related to the legal system
  • Religious Observances
  • Any other absence that is protected under State or Federal law.


Student Attendance Reminders

Parents, please be reminded that our goal is to have all students in school each and every day. To make this a reality we need the support of our parents and families. Students arriving after 7:30 are considered tardy and need to check in at the front desk. Please contact the front office at 713-842-5555 if your student is going to be absent.

To remain in compliance with our district, please note the following:

 A student's absence will be considered excused if a student provides physical or electronic documentation within 48 hours of absence indicating the student’s full name, and dates missed and is signed by a guardian or doctor mentioning any of the following reasons below and only if the absence meets the criteria defined under the excused absence section of our handbook.

 Upon return to school, a student absent for more than three (3) consecutive days because of a personal illness must bring a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the illness or condition that caused the student’s extended absence from school. Students are only permitted 3 handwritten notes within a six-week grading period that meet the criteria.
