As we approach the winter break, let’s take a moment to reflect back on the incredible school year we’ve had so far.
Before it even started, a group of students founded Culture4Caring, an organization whose mission is to make sure every student who walks through our doors feels cared for and loved. Their work continues to this day every day at every Klein ISD school.
We kicked off the school year celebrating moments. Moments experienced in years past, and moments yet to come. And of course, one big party popper moment to celebrate our Klein ISD family.
We welcomed nearly 54,000 students as the 2018-2019 school year got underway, opened the doors to our district’s newest school, Hofius Intermediate, welcomed another class to Klein Cain, and celebrated Lemm Elementary returning home after being displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
In October, over 850 Klein High School students mobilized for a day of service as part of KleinServes. The Bearkats served in a variety of ways at more than 20 locations and events
across our community.
We blasted off into our latest innovation challenge, Klein in Space. Students packed into the KMPC for their day of design as they developed experiments in hopes of sending them to the International Space Station. In November, Kindergarten through 4th graders teamed up throughout the district to determine what they would take to Mars so they can successfully
build a community on the red planet. Congratulations to the winning teams from Klein High and Klein Oak. We look forward to celebrating our Kindergarten through 4th-grade winners this January.
And just a few short weeks ago, we celebrated the wonderful diversity in Klein ISD with the P2P United Multicultural event. There was dancing, food, music, and informative displays
celebrating cultures from around the world.
We honored our nation’s 41st president as his funeral procession traveled through our district and welcomed an Olympic gold medalist who calls Benfer home.
In October and December, we celebrated Vistas Vikings as they embark on a new chapter in their lives during the Clap Out ceremonies.
And just this weekend, Klein High School students hosted the first-ever Klein Mental Health Fair, where we were reminded that a healthy mind is a happy mind.
Our fine arts, career and technical, and athletic programs continued to win at the state
national levels, showcasing our commitment to the whole student in Klein ISD.
Now all of these amazing things are in addition to the most critical work
that happens every day in Klein ISD classrooms.
Thank you for your work. And have a wonderful holiday break.
