It is always exciting when you can deliver great news to an employee. QISD was the recipient of a Grow Your Own Grant this year. One aspect of the grant was to fund tuition cost for a current para professional that would be completing their teaching degree in the next two years! Today Bethany Fatheree was the recipient of that "up to" $10,000 award. We are proud of Mrs. Fatheree!
Good luck to our wonderful students on the STAAR test next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday! We are so proud of our hard working staff as well for all the effort they have put forth for these students!
REMEMBER that next week will be STAAR testing on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday so the campus will be closed for lunch. No one can eat with students because some students may be testing during that time. We will be open again to parents and grandparents for lunch on Thursday.
March of the Blue will take place as planned tomorrow for K students and senior graduates. The “March” will begin at 8:30 on the elementary campus and continue to secondary campus. All are welcome!
Quitman ISD will not have classes Thursday, May 9 due to concern about flooding and continued rain. See Superintendent Turner’s post on the district App and Facebook.
Parents please be patient as we try to get your children home to you. Our buses are on their routes and going slow. We are also making sure there is a parent or an adult home before we leave the students.
Due to flooding QISD will be releasing students early. Parents may begin to pick their students up immediately. Buses will be boarding at approximately 1:30. If there is no parent or guardian at the house the students will be brought back to their home campus. If the bus can not safely get to your house your child will be brought back to their home campus. Parents that normally pick up their children need to pick them up at their normal pick up area.
NEW SIGN but the SAME MESSAGE! Every Child Every Chance Every Day! Thanks to our super maintenance guys for lifting our message HIGH!
NEXT WEEK is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our GREAT PTO has planned treats for the teachers - but the greatest gift of all would be a sweet note from your child. If you have time this weekend, sit down and help your child write to his/her teacher!
LUNCH LADY HERO DAY will celebrate how wonderful QES cafeteria workers are and how much students and staff appreciate them on Thursday. Cafeteria ladies will sport hero tee shirts, capes and a magic mask.
FIFTH GRADE PARENTS! Teachers have decided to cancel the trip to the Zoo. They are concerned about weather and the zoo puts animals inside in bad weather anyway. Instead - students will have a FIELD TRIP in the Multipurpose Room with board games, movies, popcorn and a picnic lunch.
Thanks to our LAW ENFORCEMENT officers for visiting the elementary at lunch today! The kids gave them a loud cheer. We appreciate all you do for us!

QES 4th and 5th students are READY TO ROCK THE STAAR Tuesday and Wednesday. We are so proud of our students and staff. Be sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep tonight and a good breakfast in the morning. Give them an extra HUG! We ask that visitors not come to eat lunch during these two days as students may still be testing at lunchtime.
