• Cele Update: Nov. 15

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 11/16/2020 11:00:00 AM

    Colt Families,

    This is our final week before the Thanksgiving break. In the spirit of gratitude, I would like to say how thankful all of the us at Cele are for the support from home this school year. It is our absolute pleasure to work each day with these phenomenal students, and more than ever before, it has been a coordinated effort between home and school.

    It is not too early to let us know if you wish to change your child’s method of instruction for the 3rd nine-week period. If you would like to switch from virtual to in-person, or switch from in-person to virtual when we begin the second semester on January 6, 2021, please email our fabulous Registrar, Oralia.Gonzalez@pfisd.net. If you wish to keep things as they are, no action is necessary; however, the deadline to make a change for the 3rd Nine-Week grading period is Wednesday, December 9, 2020. 

    Lastly, as you may have heard, our community suffered a tragedy last week when the lives of two Weiss High School siblings were lost. Both students were former Cele Colts, and we wanted to share a site that has been created to support the Fisher family: https://friendsofweiss.com/ 

    Wishing you a safe and happy Thanksgiving week,

    ----------------------------------------------

    Esta es nuestra última semana antes de las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias. En un espíritu de gratitud, me gustaría decir lo agradecidos que estamos todos en Cele por el apoyo desde casa este año escolar. Es un absoluto placer trabajar cada día con estos estudiantes fenomenales y, más que nunca, ha sido un esfuerzo coordinado entre el hogar y la escuela.

    No es demasiado pronto para informarnos si desea cambiar el método de instrucción de su hijo durante el tercer período de nueve semanas. Si desea cambiar de virtual a presencial, o de presencial a virtual cuando comencemos el segundo semestre el 6 de enero de 2021, envíe un correo electrónico a nuestro fabuloso registrador, Oralia.Gonzalez@pfisd.net. Si desea mantener las cosas como están, no es necesario realizar ninguna acción; sin embargo, la fecha límite para hacer un cambio para el tercer período de calificaciones de nueve semanas es el miércoles 9 de diciembre de 2020.

    Por último, como habrán escuchado, nuestra comunidad sufrió una tragedia la semana pasada cuando se perdieron las vidas de dos hermanos de Weiss High School. Ambos estudiantes eran ex Cele Colts y queríamos compartir un sitio que se ha creado para apoyar a la familia Fisher: https://friendsofweiss.com/

    Deseándole una feliz y segura semana de Acción de Gracias,

    Ben

    Advisory for Virtual Learners

    State Mandated Health Screening

    Each year public schools play an important role in health screenings for students. We will begin doing so with our in-person learners as we have in the past, and we will accommodate our virtual learners by appointment. Please review this notification of the state mandated screening for students. Appointments for virtual learners can be made by contacting our school nurse, Heidi.Weston@pfisd.net

    Cada año, las escuelas públicas juegan un papel importante en los exámenes de salud de los estudiantes. Comenzaremos a hacerlo con nuestros alumnos en persona como lo hemos hecho en el pasado, y acomodaremos a nuestros alumnos virtuales con cita previa. Revise esta notificación de la evaluación obligatoria del estado para los estudiantes. Las citas para los estudiantes virtuales se pueden hacer comunicándose con la enfermera de nuestra escuela, Heidi.Weston@pfisd.net 

    Mỗi năm, các trường công lập đóng một vai trò quan trọng trong việc kiểm tra sức khỏe cho học sinh. Chúng tôi sẽ bắt đầu làm như vậy với những người học trực tiếp như chúng tôi đã làm trước đây và chúng tôi sẽ cung cấp những người học ảo của mình theo lịch hẹn. Vui lòng xem lại thông báo này về cuộc sàng lọc bắt buộc của tiểu bang dành cho học sinh. Có thể đặt lịch hẹn cho người học ảo bằng cách liên hệ với y tá trường học của chúng tôi, Heidi.Weston@pfisd.net

    Art Kits Available for Pick Up Wednesday

    Parents, in order to assist with lessons at home for our virtual learners, we have created art kits including the following: markers, colored pencils and oil pastels. We also have oil pastels for EVERY child in the program who wants them. If you have multiple students in art, please complete the survey for each child as their sibling may have a different art teacher. The survey will be open Monday or Tuesday and we will distribute kits to parents here on campus Wednesday, November 18. https://forms.gle/seX22Y3grpDcTQ7m8 Also, if you choose to provide your own supplies, this link provides a list of what is required for art this year.

    Padres, para ayudar con las lecciones en casa para nuestros estudiantes virtuales, hemos creado kits de arte que incluyen lo siguiente: marcadores, lápices de colores y pasteles al óleo. También tenemos pasteles al óleo para TODOS los niños del programa que los quieran. Si tiene varios estudiantes en arte, complete la encuesta para cada niño, ya que su hermano puede tener un maestro de arte diferente.

Https://forms.gle/seX22Y3grpDcTQ7m8 Además, si elige proporcionar sus propios materiales, este enlace proporciona una lista de lo que es obligatorio para el arte este año.

    Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

    One of our goals is to ensure all families who may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school complete an application. Regardless of whether or not your child attends school in-person, there are benefits to families who qualify and to your child’s school. Please take a moment to complete an application:

    Uno de nuestros objetivos es asegurarnos de que todas las familias que pueden ser elegibles para recibir comidas gratis o de precio reducido en la escuela completen una solicitud. Independientemente de si su hijo asiste o no a la escuela en persona, existen beneficios para las familias que califican y para la escuela de su hijo. Tómese un momento para completar una solicitud:

    Supplies for In-Person Learners

    For all students who will be attending school in-person at Cele, please make note of these additional school supplies required for the school year:

    • Chromebooks
      • Each Colt will be issued a Chromebook upon enrolling for in-person learning. Parents, here is the Chromebook Agreement and Policy in English y en Espanol: el acuerdo y la póliza. Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.
      • Our Chromebooks will be a necessary school resource, similar to textbooks in the past. In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.
    • Wired Headphones
      • Students will use their Chromebooks in class for communication and a variety of learning tasks. Headphones will be essential, and it is important that students use wired headphones that can plug into their Chromebooks. While Bluetooth/wireless is popular, they do not work well in close proximity to other Bluetooth devices, sometimes lose their charge, and create other issues in the school environment.
    • Water bottles
      • To help ensure your child’s health, we are not using drinking fountains in the building. Instead, we have water bottle fillers for student use. Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.
    • Masks
      • Masks will be worn the entire school day and on school buses except when students are eating at scheduled meal times, engaged in vigorous exercise, or are playing a musical instrument. If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up. Start with wearing a mask for a 30-minute episode or a 30-minute activity without a bathroom break. Work up to a movie or another activity for an hour-and-a-half without taking a bathroom break. You know your child best, and we want you to be able to use time now to prepare our students to stay safe at school. See this link for more information on selecting, wearing, and cleaning masks.

    Colt Families,

    This week marks the coming of an important tradition here at Cele – Veterans Day.

    If you or a veteran in your family plans to join the parade, please email our 6th-grade assistant principal, Brenda.Shortnacy@pfisd.net, the name of the veteran, the branch of service, and the name of your Cele Student. Car décor is strongly encouraged, and thank you in advance for helping us continue Cele’s strong connection to our Veteran community!

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Esta semana marca la llegada de una tradición importante aquí en Cele - el Día de los Veteranos. Si bien no podremos abrir nuestras puertas como lo hicimos en el pasado para honrar a nuestros Hombres y Mujeres de Servicio, estamos invitando a nuestros Veteranos a formar un desfile alrededor de la escuela este miércoles 11 de noviembre, de 9:30 a 9:45. am Tendremos algunos de nuestros líderes estudiantiles y personal socialmente distanciados alrededor del perímetro de la escuela para honrar a nuestros veteranos.

  • Cele Update: Nov. 1

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 11/2/2020 11:00:00 AM

    Colt Families,

    This week, we are excited to announce that each of our Colts on-campus will be issued a Cele Student ID. We will start requiring all students to have their IDs each day for a number of purposes, including helping us ensure more contactless transactions in your child’s day. Beside that, it will be a great way for students to show Cele School Spirit!

    In other great news, it was announced this past week that all students in PfISD will receive free breakfast and free lunch starting immediately. There are many stresses and pressures on families this year, and basic nutrition for your child should not be one of them. Each year campuses across PfISD, including Cele, receive funding based in part upon the number of students who qualify for free or reduced price lunch. That has not changed, and we need your assistance to be sure our campus needs are accurately represented.

    If your family may qualify, please use the links below to complete an application and support the many great things happening at Cele and across PfISD.

    Read on for more news about the week ahead!

    --------------------

    Esta semana, nos complace anunciar que cada uno de nuestros Colts en el campus recibirá una identificación de estudiante Cele. Comenzaremos a exigir que todos los estudiantes tengan sus identificaciones todos los días para varios propósitos, incluido ayudarnos a garantizar más transacciones sin contacto en el día de su hijo. Además de eso, ¡será una excelente manera para que los estudiantes muestren el espíritu escolar de Cele!

    En otra gran noticia, se anunció la semana pasada que todos los estudiantes de PfISD recibirán desayuno y almuerzo gratis a partir de inmediato. Hay muchas tensiones y presiones sobre las familias este año, y la nutrición básica para su hijo no debería ser una de ellas. Cada año, los campus de PfISD, incluido Cele, reciben fondos basados ​​en parte en la cantidad de estudiantes que califican para almuerzos gratis oa precio reducido. Eso no ha cambiado y necesitamos su ayuda para asegurarnos de que las necesidades de nuestro campus estén representadas con precisión.

    Si su familia puede calificar, use los enlaces a continuación para completar una solicitud y apoyar las muchas cosas maravillosas que están sucediendo en Cele y en PfISD.

    ¡Siga leyendo para conocer más noticias sobre la próxima semana!

Our Coaches will communicate to parents how our process will work for assigning admission to competitions.

    Supplies for In-Person Learners

    For all students who will be attending school in-person at Cele, please make note of these additional school supplies required for the school year:

    • Chromebooks
      • Each Colt will be issued a Chromebook upon enrolling for in-person learning. Parents, here is the Chromebook Agreement and Policy in English y en Espanol: el acuerdo y la póliza. Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.
      • Our Chromebooks will be a necessary school resource, similar to textbooks in the past. In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.
    • Wired Headphones
      • Students will use their Chromebooks in class for communication and a variety of learning tasks. Headphones will be essential, and it is important that students use wired headphones that can plug into their Chromebooks. While Bluetooth/wireless is popular, they do not work well in close proximity to other Bluetooth devices, sometimes lose their charge, and create other issues in the school environment.
    • Water bottles
      • To help ensure your child’s health, we are not using drinking fountains in the building. Instead, we have water bottle fillers for student use. Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.
    • Masks
      • Masks will be worn the entire school day and on school buses except when students are eating at scheduled meal times, engaged in vigorous exercise, or are playing a musical instrument. If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up. Start with wearing a mask for a 30-minute episode or a 30-minute activity without a bathroom break. Work up to a movie or another activity for an hour-and-a-half without taking a bathroom break. You know your child best, and we want you to be able to use time now to prepare our students to stay safe at school. See this link for more information on selecting, wearing, and cleaning masks.

Durante la llegada de la mañana, les pediremos a todos los autos que se detengan a lo largo de la acera frente a un miembro del personal que estará allí para tomar la temperatura de su hijo. Si los estudiantes tienen una temperatura superior a los 100 Fahrenheit, volveremos a tomar la temperatura. Los estudiantes que nuevamente tengan una temperatura superior a los 100 grados no podrán asistir a la escuela y deberán seguir el protocolo de regreso a la escuela.

    Screening Your Child at Home

    Health and Safety shared this Parent Student Screening document as a guide to share with families for conducting self-screening at home. 

    What if my child is absent from Virtual Learning?

    One of the benefits of Remote Learning is that students who are not well enough to be at school may still feel well enough to participate and stay caught up on their classes. Other times, a child may be too sick to participate or may need to miss a day of virtual school altogether. Any time a child is absent, parents must notify our Attendance Office within three business days, and the same day whenever possible. Virtual sick notes  or notes regarding a student’s absence may be emailed to our Attendance Specialist, Paula.Gonzales@pfisd.net Ms. Gonzales also is your resource for any and all attendance-related questions. Save her email address for future reference; you never know when you may need it.

    PfISD will provide food services to the greatest extent possible and allowable for PFISD ENROLLED students participating in virtual learning. District transportation will not be provided to curbside meal pick up locations.

    Curbside meals will be provided at standard prices, reduced prices, or free, depending on the student’s eligibility. Parents/guardians interested in applying for free or reduced meals must complete the USDA Income verification form online.

  • Cele Update: Oct. 18

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/19/2020 7:00:00 AM

    Colt Families,

    It was wonderful seeing more of our Colts in person this week and back in the classroom. Once again, our students did an excellent job of following new expectations related to health and safety while in the building. We adjusted our dismissal procedures a couple times to minimize congregating as much as possible while still getting students on their way. For your planning purposes, we are dismissing student car riders by grade level. 6th grade at 3:31 pm; 7th grade at 3:33 pm; 8th grade at 3:35 pm. While it depends on your family’s specific situation, generally, dismissal should run more smoothly if 6th grade parents are the first ones in the car line. 

    I appreciate everyone’s patience with us during our two busiest times of day. Safety is our priority, and your role is crucial. One thing we are asking is that students who are dropped off by car in the morning stay in their vehicle until 7:55 a.m. when staff are in place to supervise. If your schedule will not allow that, we do have a bus for every student within the Cele Attendance area.

    Finally, a reminder that this Friday, October 23, is a holiday for students and a professional learning day for teachers. Students will have a three-day weekend.

    Familias Colt,

    Fue maravilloso ver más de nuestros Colts en persona esta semana y de regreso en el salón de clases. Una vez más, nuestros estudiantes hicieron un excelente trabajo al seguir las nuevas expectativas relacionadas con la salud y la seguridad mientras estaban en el edificio. Ajustamos nuestros procedimientos de salida un par de veces para minimizar la congregación tanto como sea posible mientras los estudiantes siguen su camino. Para sus propósitos de planificación, estamos despidiendo a los estudiantes que viajan en automóvil por nivel de grado. 6to grado a las 3:31 pm; 7mo grado a las 3:33 pm; 8vo grado a las 3:35 pm. Si bien depende de la situación específica de su familia, en general, el despido debería ser más sencillo si los padres de sexto grado son los primeros en la fila del automóvil.

    Agradezco la paciencia de todos con nosotros durante los dos momentos más ocupados del día. La seguridad es nuestra prioridad y su función es crucial. Una cosa que pedimos es que los estudiantes que son dejados en automóvil por la mañana permanezcan en su vehículo hasta las 7:55 a.m. cuando el personal esté en su lugar para supervisar. Si su horario no lo permite, tenemos un autobús para cada estudiante dentro del área de Cele Attendance. 

    Finalmente, un recordatorio de que este viernes 23 de octubre es feriado para los estudiantes y un día de aprendizaje profesional para los docentes. Los estudiantes tendrán un fin de semana de tres días.

    Car Riders

    Parents, we need your assistance with ensuring a safe start to each school day here at Cele. Students may not be dropped off prior to and must remain in cars until staff members begin receiving students at 7:55 a.m. If your schedule does not allow you to wait until 7:55 a.m. for drop off, we ask that you send your student on the assigned bus (information below). During morning arrival, we will ask all cars to pull all the way up along the curb in front of a staff member who will be there to take your child’s temperature. If students have a temperature above 100 Fahrenheit, we will retake the temperature. Students who again have a temperature above 100 degrees will be unable to attend school and must follow the return to school protocol. 

    How to Find my Bus Stop

    Parents, you can verify your child’s bus stop and bus number using InfoFinder. Simply type in your address and click “search.” Bus information for all schools you are zoned to will be displayed. 

    Pilotos de coches

    Padres, necesitamos su ayuda para garantizar un comienzo seguro de cada día escolar aquí en Cele. No se puede dejar a los estudiantes antes y deben permanecer en los automóviles hasta que los miembros del personal comiencen a recibir a los estudiantes a las 7:55 a.m. Si su horario no le permite esperar hasta las 7:55 a.m. para dejarlos, le pedimos que envíe a su estudiante el autobús asignado (información a continuación). Durante la llegada de la mañana, les pediremos a todos los autos que se detengan a lo largo de la acera frente a un miembro del personal que estará allí para tomar la temperatura de su hijo. Si los estudiantes tienen una temperatura superior a los 100 Fahrenheit, volveremos a tomar la temperatura. Los estudiantes que nuevamente tengan una temperatura superior a los 100 grados no podrán asistir a la escuela y deberán seguir el protocolo de regreso a la escuela.

    Cómo encontrar mi parada de autobús

    Padres, pueden verificar la parada de autobús de su hijo y el número de autobús usando InfoFinder. Simplemente escriba su dirección y haga clic en "buscar". Se mostrará la información del autobús de todas las escuelas a las que está asignado.

    Supplies for In-Person Learners

    For all students who will be attending school in-person at Cele, please make note of these additional school supplies required for the school year:

    • Chromebooks
      • Each Colt will be issued a Chromebook upon enrolling for in-person learning. Parents, here is the Chromebook Agreement and Policy in English y en Espanol: el acuerdoy la póliza. Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.
      • Our Chromebooks will be a necessary school resource, similar to textbooks in the past. In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.
    • Wired Headphones
      • Students will use their Chromebooks in class for communication and a variety of learning tasks. Headphones will be essential, and it is important that students use wired headphones that can plug into their Chromebooks. While Bluetooth/wireless is popular, they do not work well in close proximity to other Bluetooth devices, sometimes lose their charge, and create other issues in the school environment.
    • Water bottles
      • To help ensure your child’s health, we are not using drinking fountains in the building. Instead, we have water bottle fillers for student use. Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.
    • Masks
      • Masks will be worn the entire school day and on school buses except when students are eating at scheduled meal times, engaged in vigorous exercise, or are playing a musical instrument. If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up. Start with wearing a mask for a 30-minute episode or a 30-minute activity without a bathroom break. Work up to a movie or another activity for an hour-and-a-half without taking a bathroom break. You know your child best, and we want you to be able to use time now to prepare our students to stay safe at school. See this link for more information on selecting, wearing, and cleaning masks.

    Screening Your Child at Home

    Health and Safety shared this Parent Student Screening document as a guide to share with families for conducting self-screening at home.

    What if my child is absent from Virtual Learning?

    One of the benefits of Remote Learning is that students who are not well enough to be at school may still feel well enough to participate and stay caught up on their classes. Other times, a child may be too sick to participate or may need to miss a day of virtual school altogether. Any time a child is absent, parents must notify our Attendance Office within three business days, and the same day whenever possible. Virtual sick notes  or notes regarding a student’s absence may be emailed to our Attendance Specialist, Paula.Gonzales@pfisd.net Ms. Gonzales also is your resource for any and all attendance-related questions. Save her email address for future reference; you never know when you may need it. 

    Meals During Remote Learning
    PfISD will provide food services to the greatest extent possible and allowable for PFISD ENROLLED students participating in virtual learning. District transportation will not be provided to curbside meal pick up locations.

    Curbside meals will be provided at standard prices, reduced prices, or free, depending on the student’s eligibility. Parents/guardians interested in applying for free or reduced meals must complete the USDA Income verification form online. 

    PfISD will continue to offer curbside meal pickup for ENROLLED PfISD students at the locations listed below. Students can pick up meals at any of the locations below, regardless of their home campus location Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. for breakfast and 11 a.m.-noon.

    All students, regardless of the campus they attend, will receive free breakfast. Regardless of whether the student qualifies for free or reduced meals, each student/parent/guardian must provide the following information during each daily meal pick up:

    • Student Name
    • Campus Name
    • ID Number
    • Grade 

    Students can come by themselves to pick up meals and/or a parent /guardian can come without the student to pick up meals. Students can pick up both breakfast and lunch at the same time. However, we are no longer able to provide weekend meals. Monthly meal menus can be found here

    1. TDAP
    2. Meningococcal quadrivalent (MCV4) – one dose is required

    *If your child has already received these vaccines, please submit an updated record as soon as possible by emailing SHOTS@PFISD.NET, or mail a copy to the school, or fax to 512-594-3005.

  • Cele Update: Oct. 12

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/13/2020 9:00:00 AM

    Colt Families,

    I have a follow up message from our counselors regarding how to access schedules this nine weeks:

    In an effort to safely accommodate  all of our students, schedule changes have been made for the second nine weeks. Changes will take effect Tuesday, Oct. 13. Please view your student’s most up to date schedule in Skyward starting Tuesday morning. Please note that you will likely still see previous classes from your student’s 1st nine weeks schedule through the beginning of next week.  This is normal and they will eventually disappear.

    Skyward link: https://skyward.pfisd.net/StudentSTS


    In Person Learners
    All in person students will receive a copy of their schedule when they report to 1st period. Rosters will be posted throughout the building so students know where to go. Teacher will provide class information in class.

    Virtual Learners
    1.  First, please log into Skyward FIRST to determine if your schedule has had any changes.  Skyward is where your MOST accurate schedule will ALWAYS be :).

    2.  Second, make sure your classes and new periods appear in Google Classroom.  Your old ones may still be there, and that’s ok.  Do not do anything with the old classes.  Eventually they will be removed.

    3.  Third, check your STUDENT EMAIL for information about links to your new classes.  Log in on time and have a great day!

    If you have any additional questions, please contact your child’s counselor.  Thank you for your patience and support!

     

     

    Estimado Padre/Guardián,

    En un esfuerzo por acomodar con seguridad a todos nuestros estudiantes, se han realizado cambios en el horario de clases para las segundas nueve semanas. Los cambios entrarán en vigor el martes 13 de octubre.  Por favor, vea el horario de clases más actualizado de sus estudiantes en Skyward a partir del martes por la mañana. Tenga en cuenta que es probable que siga viendo clases anteriores del horario de las primeras nueve semanas de su estudiante hasta el comienzo de la próxima semana.  Esto es normal y eventualmente desaparecerán.

    Enlace de web para Skyward: https://skyward.pfisd.net/StudentSTS


    Estudiantes en persona
    Todos los alumnos recibirán una copia de su horario cuando se presenten al primer período. Las listas se publicarán en todo el edificio para que los estudiantes sepan a dónde ir.  El maestro proporcionará información de inicio de sesión en clase.

    Estudiantes virtuales
    1.  En primer lugar, inicie sesión en Skyward PRIMERO para determinar si su horario de clases ha tenido algún cambio.  Skyward es donde su horario más preciso SIEMPRE estará :).

    2. En segundo lugar, asegúrate de que tus clases y nuevos períodos aparezcan en Google Classroom.  Tus viejas clases pueden estar ahí, y está bien.  No hagas nada con las viejas clases. Eventualmente serán eliminados.

    3. En tercer lugar, consulte su EMAIL ESTUDIANTIL para obtener información sobre los enlaces a sus nuevas clases. ¡Inicia sesión a tiempo y que tengas un buen día!  

    Si tiene alguna pregunta adicional, comuníquese con la consejera de su hijo. ¡Gracias por su paciencia y apoyo!

     

    Read on for more details, and make it a great week, Colts!

Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.
    Our Chromebooks will be a necessary school resource, similar to textbooks in the past. In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.

    • Wired Headphones

    Students will use their Chromebooks in class for communication and a variety of learning tasks. Headphones will be essential, and it is important that students use wired headphones that can plug into their Chromebooks. While Bluetooth/wireless is popular, they do not work well in close proximity to other Bluetooth devices, sometimes lose their charge, and create other issues in the school environment.
    Water bottles

    To help ensure your child’s health, we are not using drinking fountains in the building. Instead, we have water bottle fillers for student use. Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.

    • Masks

    Masks will be worn the entire school day and on school buses except when students are eating at scheduled meal times, engaged in vigorous exercise, or are playing a musical instrument. If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up. Start with wearing a mask for a 30-minute episode or a 30-minute activity without a bathroom break. Work up to a movie or another activity for an hour-and-a-half without taking a bathroom break. You know your child best, and we want you to be able to use time now to prepare our students to stay safe at school. See this link for more information on selecting, wearing, and cleaning masks.
     

    Screening Your Child at Home

    Health and Safety shared this Parent Student Screening document as a guide to share with families for conducting self-screening at home. 

    Car Riders

    Parents, we need your assistance with ensuring a safe start to each school day here at Cele. Students may not be dropped off prior to and must remain in cars until staff members begin receiving students at 7:55 a.m. If your schedule does not allow you to wait until 7:55 a.m. for drop off, we ask that you send your student on the assigned bus (information below). During morning arrival, we will ask all cars to pull all the way up along the curb in front of a staff member who will be there to take your child’s temperature. If students have a temperature above 100 Fahrenheit, we will retake the temperature. Students who again have a temperature above 100 degrees will be unable to attend school and must follow the return to school protocol.

    How to Find my Bus Stop

    Parents, you can verify your child’s bus stop and bus number using InfoFinder. Simply type in your address and click “search.” Bus information for all schools you are zoned to will be displayed.

    What if my child is absent from Virtual Learning?

    One of the benefits of Remote Learning is that students who are not well enough to be at school may still feel well enough to participate and stay caught up on their classes. Other times, a child may be too sick to participate or may need to miss a day of virtual school altogether. Any time a child is absent, parents must notify our Attendance Office within three business days, and the same day whenever possible. Virtual sick notes  or notes regarding a student’s absence may be emailed to our Attendance Specialist, Paula.Gonzales@pfisd.net Ms. Gonzales also is your resource for any and all attendance-related questions.

  • Cele Update: Part 1

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/11/2020 5:00:00 PM

    Cele Families,

     

    Just a reminder that tomorrow, Monday, is a holiday for staff and students. We will resume classes and start the new nine-week grading period Tuesday. I will send my usual, weekly Update tomorrow, but here are some time-sensitive items:

    Schedule Changes

    Last week I mentioned that we were conducting schedule changes in order to optimize our ability to social distance in the building and to minimize alternative arrangements for in-person students taught by remote instructors. The work is complete, and students can verify their new schedule in Skyward by following the instructions in this document. EVERY student should verify their schedule in Skyward. Google Classroom will not have the most current information, and students may still see their previous teacher’s courses.

    For Tuesday

    There is a great deal of transition happening this grading period, and we are using Tuesday to get settled. There will not be any Zoom meetings on Tuesday. Teachers will be checking Google Classrooms to ensure students have visited the right classroom and are aware of any changes in schedule that may have taken place. All students, whether in-person or virtual, will participate in asynchronous learning only on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, we will resume our concurrent teaching model and introduce our students to the Canvas learning platform.

    In-Person Learners

    We are excited that more of our students will be joining us in-person at Cele starting Tuesday. Parents, please know that our first priority is the safety of our entire Cele family, and we will devote time Tuesday to reviewing and orienting our students to the expectations that keep us safe and healthy. Our students who were part of the previous phase did a phenomenal job and will be great role models. Here is a link to the orientation slideshow, and below are some items for In-Person learners to remember.

    In-Person Supplies

    For all students who will be attending school in-person at Cele, please make note of these additional school supplies required for the school year:

    • Chromebooks
      • Each Colt will be issued a Chromebook upon enrolling for in-person learning. Parents, here is the Chromebook Agreement and Policy in English y en Espanol: el acuerdo y la póliza. Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.

In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.

Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.
    • Masks

If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up.

    Screening Your Child at Home

    Health and Safety shared this Parent Student Screening document as a guide to share with families for conducting self-screening at home.

     

     

    Familias Cele,

    Solo un recordatorio de que mañana lunes es feriado para el personal y los estudiantes. Reanudaremos las clases y comenzaremos el nuevo período de calificaciones de nueve semanas el martes. Mañana enviaré mi actualización semanal habitual, pero aquí hay algunos elementos urgentes:

    Cambios de horario

    La semana pasada mencioné que estábamos llevando a cabo cambios de horario para optimizar nuestra capacidad de distanciamiento social en el edificio y minimizar los arreglos alternativos para los estudiantes en persona enseñados por instructores remotos. El trabajo está completo y los estudiantes pueden verificar su nuevo horario en Skyward siguiendo las instrucciones de este documento. CADA estudiante debe verificar su horario en Skyward. Google Classroom no tendrá la información más actualizada y es posible que los alumnos sigan viendo los cursos de sus profesores anteriores.

     

    Para el martes

    Se está produciendo una gran transición en este período de calificaciones y estamos usando el martes para asentarnos. No habrá reuniones de Zoom el martes. Los maestros revisarán Google Classrooms para asegurarse de que los estudiantes hayan visitado el aula correcta y estén al tanto de cualquier cambio en el horario que pueda haber tenido lugar. Todos los estudiantes, ya sean presenciales o virtuales, participarán en el aprendizaje asincrónico solo el martes. El miércoles 14 de octubre, reanudaremos nuestro modelo de enseñanza concurrente y presentaremos a nuestros estudiantes la plataforma de aprendizaje Canvas.

     

    Estudiantes presenciales

    Estamos emocionados de que más de nuestros estudiantes se unirán a nosotros en persona en Cele a partir del martes. Padres, sepan que nuestra primera prioridad es la seguridad de toda nuestra familia Cele, y dedicaremos tiempo el martes a repasar y orientar a nuestros estudiantes a las expectativas que nos mantienen seguros y saludables. Nuestros estudiantes que formaron parte de la fase anterior hicieron un trabajo fenomenal y serán grandes modelos a seguir. Aquí hay un enlace a la presentación de diapositivas de orientación, y debajo hay algunos elementos para que los estudiantes en persona recuerden.

     

    Suministros en persona

    Para todos los estudiantes que asistirán a la escuela en persona en Cele, por favor tome nota de estos útiles escolares adicionales requeridos para el año escolar:

    ChromebooksCada Colt recibirá una Chromebook al inscribirse para el aprendizaje en persona. Padres, aquí está el Acuerdo y la Política de Chromebook en inglés y en español: el acuerdo y la póliza. Imprima y firme una copia de cada formulario y llévelo a la oficina principal entre las 8:30 a.m. y las 4:00 p.m. de lunes a viernes para que podamos entregarle a su hijo una Chromebook. La información del seguro está disponible cuando proporciona el formulario. Llámanos al 512-594-3000 para obtener más detalles.
    Nuestras Chromebooks serán un recurso escolar necesario, similar a los libros de texto en el pasado. Además de cuidar su nuevo dispositivo, una expectativa para nuestros Colts es que se aseguren de tener su Chromebook completamente cargada al comienzo de cada día escolar. Haga un plan con su hijo para ayudarlo a estar preparado cada mañana.
    Auriculares con cableLos estudiantes usarán sus Chromebooks en clase para comunicarse y una variedad de tareas de aprendizaje. Los audífonos serán esenciales y es importante que los estudiantes usen audífonos con cable que puedan conectarse a sus Chromebooks. Si bien el Bluetooth / inalámbrico es popular, no funcionan bien cerca de otros dispositivos Bluetooth, a veces pierden su carga y crean otros problemas en el entorno escolar.
    Botellas de aguaPara ayudar a asegurar la salud de su hijo, no usamos bebederos en el edificio. En cambio, tenemos rellenos de botellas de agua para uso de los estudiantes. Cada potro debe traer su botella de agua personal con un nombre. Una nueva expectativa para nuestros Colts es llegar con sus botellas de agua llenas para comenzar el día.
    MáscarasSe usarán máscaras durante todo el día escolar y en los autobuses escolares, excepto cuando los estudiantes estén comiendo a la hora programada, haciendo ejercicio vigoroso o tocando un instrumento musical. Si su hijo no ha usado una máscara con mucha frecuencia, durante mucho tiempo o muy recientemente, se recomienda que los estudiantes comiencen a practicar esta semana y la vayan aumentando lentamente. Empiece por usar una máscara para un episodio de 30 minutos o una actividad de 30 minutos sin ir al baño. Trabaje para ver una película u otra actividad durante una hora y media sin tomar un descanso para ir al baño. Usted es quien mejor conoce a su hijo y queremos que pueda usar el tiempo ahora para preparar a nuestros estudiantes para que se mantengan seguros en la escuela. Consulte este enlace para obtener más información sobre cómo seleccionar, usar y limpiar máscaras.
     

    Evaluando a su hijo en casa

    Salud y Seguridad compartió este documento de Evaluación de padres y estudiantes como una guía para compartir con las familias para realizar una autoevaluación en el hogar.

  • Schedule changes

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/9/2020 7:00:00 AM

    Parents,

    Just a quick message to let you know that as promised, we are working to balance class sizes in preparation for more students returning to in-person learning next week. As a result of this process, parents and students may notice additional classes in Skyward and Google Classroom. Please know that you can ignore the new classes right now, and nothing will be finalized until Tuesday, October 13, 2020. Look for additional communication to clarify some of the transitions we will undergo to launch our 2nd Nine-week grading period.

     

    Padres

    Solo un mensaje rápido para hacerle saber que, como prometimos, estamos trabajando para equilibrar el tamaño de las clases en preparación para que más estudiantes regresen al aprendizaje en persona la próxima semana. Como resultado de este proceso, los padres y los estudiantes pueden notar clases adicionales en Skyward y Google Classroom. Por favor, puede ignorar las nuevas clases en este momento, y no se finalizará nada hasta el martes 13 de octubre de 2020. Busque comunicaciones adicionales para aclarar algunas de las transiciones que atravesaremos para lanzar nuestro segundo período de calificaciones de nueve semanas.

  • Cele Update: Oct. 4

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/5/2020 6:00:00 PM

    Colt Families, 

    Happy October! The final week of the grading period is here, and we want all of our Colts to finish strong. The information in the Checking Grades section below will help you log in and check on your student’s performance so far. Right now, missing assignments and not resubmitting work for an improved grade are the top reasons some of our Colts have lower than usual averages. This is very correctable if students act soon. Thursday is the last school day of this nine-week grading period, and students will have a four-day weekend before returning on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020 to begin the second nine-week grading period.

    Read on for more details, and make it a great week, Colts!

    Checking Grades

    Parents, we are in the final week of our first marking period, and we are seeing that some of our students have missing work that is pulling down their respective grades. You can use this guide to remain connected to your child’s grades and learning. I encourage each parent to check on grades as soon as possible this week and reach out to teachers with any questions.

    Scholastic Book Fair

    We are having an online Scholastic Book Fair from Oct 5-18. All items will ship directly to your home and sales support the Cele Library.  You can find our online fair by going to our Scholastic homepage: http://bit.ly/CeleBkFair.  Contact Ms. Dominguez, our librarian, if you have any questions.  Her email is margaret.dominguez@pfisd.net and her number is 512-594-3071. Please encourage your kids to keep reading!  If they need help accessing our digital titles in Sora or Follett, be sure to let Ms. Dominguez know.

    Oct. 13 Phase 3 Learning Plan

    As you have heard, Oct. 13 is our next phase in the return to learn plan. Sept. 30 was the deadline to make a change to your child’s method of instruction (remote or in person).

    Based on those results, we will have approximately 600 total students returning in person (current in person + new). Which is approximately 50% of all students. At first glance, some of our standard instructional classrooms will have more than 14-15 students, while many have much fewer still. Some schedule changes may be performed to balance classes, and while teachers and periods may change, your child’s courses will not. Regardless, we will continue to social distance and require masks.

    Unfortunately, at this time if you would like to add your student to in-person learning the survey is closed. The next opportunity will be the 3rd nine weeks in January. Remote learning is available for any student, all year long. If you decide you would like to switch from in person to remote learning at any time. Please simply email Oralia.Gonzalez@pfisd.net. A message will be sent to all families this week, similar to last time, confirming their child’s method of instruction starting Oct. 13. 

    Hispanic Heritage Celebrated

    Our Colts know how much we value our diversity and how much we value good literature. This month, we are bringing those values together for Hispanic Heritage month. Check out this amazing slideshow created by our Cele Librarian, Ms. Dominguez. There are many fantastic titles and authors recommended – many of which are available in our online library catalog or through the Book Fair. Happy exploring, Colts!

    Homework Help Site from Texas A&M
    Texas A&M University is offering a way for students to receive tutoring online. If your students are struggling with online learning or adjusting back to in-person instruction, the Aggie Homework Helpline provides free online tutoring to students and families from pre-k through 12th grade. The Aggie Homework Helpline can connect you with Aggie tutors and education interns who can help your students improve their learning habits and outcomes. To schedule your free tutoring session today and for more information visit: https://education.tamu.edu/aggie-homework-helpline/

    Football Scrimmages Monday and Tuesday

    Our Colts will play their opening game versus Kelly Lane Middle School this week; however, we will not have any football games on the Cele Field this season. This week, 7th grade is “home” at Weiss on Monday, and 8th grade is away. The 8th grade A Team will play at Hendrickson HS, and the B Team will play at The Pfield. Our Coaches will communicate to parents how our process will work for assigning admission to competitions, but parents, please inform extended friends and family that we likely will be unable to accommodate additional fans this year. I will keep you posted regarding any changes or updates. We will require all guests to wear face masks and observe social distancing.

    Volleyball Thursday

    Our Lady Colts this week take on the Dessau Middle School Diamondbacks Thursday. 7th grade is away and 8th grade plays here at Cele. Admission to all games will be very limited this season. Our Coaches will communicate to parents how our process will work for assigning admission to competitions, but parents, please inform extended friends and family that we likely will be unable to accommodate additional fans this year. I will keep you posted regarding any changes or updates. We will require all guests to wear face masks and observe social distancing.

  • Cele Update: Sept. 27

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 9/28/2020

    Colt Families,

    Thank you for the feedback you provided in our most recent survey. I appreciated the suggestions, insight into your son or daughter’s experience, and the many compliments to our hard-working teachers and staff. We are learning from each other as well, and I expect that the online and in-person experience will only improve as the year progresses. Speaking of the year progressing, we are nearing the start of a new nine-week grading period, and now is the time to make a selection for learning online or learning in-person. The second nine-week grading period is from October 13 to December 18, 2020. Unless something changes at the state or local level, there will be no limit to the number of students allowed to attend in-person. You can let us know your intentions using this form, and if we do not receive a notice, we will assume you wish to keep the instructional arrangement the same.

    As always, thank you for your support. It has been wonderful to have some of our students back in the classroom, back in the band hall, the choir room, the stage, the gym, the science lab… and we are eager to have some more. Whether your child is learning with us in the building or online, we are looking for ways to keep the campus culture strong. Our Advisory period that is on your son or daughter’s schedule will become one way in which we keep our connection to one another tight. If your child is a remote learner, he or she will want to sign in to the Google Classroom for Advisory and begin viewing the daily announcements. Our Advisory teachers will be available to assist students with navigating this new way of doing school, and our counselors will be facilitating lessons designed to meet the current needs of our students. This is just one of the ways we are adjusting practices to support our kiddos. We’d love your feedback as we go along. Read on for details of the week ahead.

    Make it a great week, Colts!

    Deadline for In-Person Learning THIS Wednesday, 9/30

    Parents, now is the time to select whether or not you would like your student to attend school in-person (on-campus at Cele) for the 2nd nine-week period. Beginning Oct. 13, all students who wish to return for in-person learning may do so. Here is the form. If you have any difficulty with the form, please call us in the office at 512-594-3000. If we do not receive a response or notification, we will make no changes to your current enrollment status. While our intent is to minimize the changes during this next transition, please understand that some schedule changes may be required to ensure your child has the best in-person or remote learning opportunity. We will inform parents in advance of any changes to your child’s schedule.

    Checking Grades

    Parents, we are only two weeks from the end of our first marking period, and we are seeing that some of our students have missing work that is pulling down their respective grades. We are sending out Interim Progress Reports this week so that parents have an update on their child’s academic performance so far. These days, there is no need to wait for the IPR because both you and your child have access to check grades 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just visit www.pfisd.net/skyward for details. Teachers are working with students to recover missing work and would love to connect with you.

    Library Materials DUE MONDAY, 9/28

    Parents, thank you for those who already have returned library books and materials that were checked out prior to spring break. We now must account for any unreturned library materials, and we need your prompt assistance. Ms. Dominguez has sent out notices, but if you have a book to return there is no need to wait. You can drop off library materials for any campus in the red return bin located outside the front doors at Cele or in the black bin in the cafeteria.  Fines for lost library items are removed from your account when the items are returned. Fines can be paid online through the Web Store link found on the Parent Tab of the PfISD website, or visit pflugervilleisd.revtrak.net/. You can drop off cash or a check made out to Cele Middle School in the school’s Front Office during business hours. 

    All overdue items from the last school year will be marked lost on September 28, 2020. Lost books that are paid for and found later can be turned in for a refund. Please contact Ms. Dominguez if you have any questions, you think you have already returned an item, or you have concerns about paying fines. Keep reading and stay healthy!

    PfISD Instructional Calendar Survey

    The Pflugerville ISD instructional calendar results from a collaboration between the community, students, and staff. The calendar is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, especially our students and teachers. Our District Academic Advisory Council (DAAC) solicits your feedback as part of their 2021-2022 calendar development process. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey and to make sure your voice is considered. The survey will remain open until Oct. 4.

    Football Scrimmages Monday and Tuesday

    Our Colts will play a scrimmage versus Pflugerville Middle School this week, finally able to take the field; however, we will not have any football games on the Cele Field this season. Instead, all “Home” games will be played at Weiss High School. This week, 7th grade is “home” at Weiss on Monday, and 8th grade is away at PMS. Our Coaches will communicate to parents how our process will work for assigning admission to competitions, but parents, please inform extended friends and family that we likely will be unable to accommodate additional fans this year. I will keep you posted regarding any changes or updates. We will require all guests to wear face masks and observe social distancing. 

    Volleyball Thursday

    Our Lady Colts will have their regular season opener this week versus Park Crest this Thursday. 7th grade is away and 8th grade plays here at Cele. Admission to all games will be very limited this season. Our Coaches will communicate to parents how our process will work for assigning admission to competitions, but parents, please inform extended friends and family that we likely will be unable to accommodate additional fans this year. I will keep you posted regarding any changes or updates. We will require all guests to wear face masks and observe social distancing. 

    Supplies for In-Person Learners 

    • Chromebooks

    Each Colt will be issued a Chromebook upon enrolling for in-person learning. Parents, here is the Chromebook Agreement and Policy in English y en Espanol: el acuerdo y la póliza. Please print and sign a copy each form and bring it to the front office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 pm Monday-Friday so that we can issue your child a Chromebook. Insurance information is available when you provide the form. Call us at 512-594-3000 for details.
    Our Chromebooks will be a necessary school resource, similar to textbooks in the past. In addition to caring for their new device, an expectation for our Colts is that they ensure they have their Chromebook fully charged at the start of each school day. Please make a plan with your child to help him/her be prepared each morning.

    • Wired Headphones

    Students will use their Chromebooks in class for communication and a variety of learning tasks. Headphones will be essential, and it is important that students use wired headphones that can plug into their Chromebooks. While Bluetooth/wireless is popular, they do not work well in close proximity to other Bluetooth devices, sometimes lose their charge, and create other issues in the school environment.
    Water bottles

    To help ensure your child’s health, we are not using drinking fountains in the building. Instead, we have water bottle fillers for student use. Each Colt should bring his or her personal water bottle with a name displayed. A new expectation for our Colts is to arrive with their water bottles filled to start the day.

    • Masks

    Masks will be worn the entire school day and on school buses except when students are eating at scheduled meal times, engaged in vigorous exercise, or are playing a musical instrument. If your child has not worn a mask very often, for very long, or very recently, it is recommended that students start practicing this week and slowly build up. Start with wearing a mask for a 30-minute episode or a 30-minute activity without a bathroom break. Work up to a movie or another activity for an hour-and-a-half without taking a bathroom break. You know your child best, and we want you to be able to use time now to prepare our students to stay safe at school. See this link for more information on selecting, wearing, and cleaning masks.
     

    Screening Your Child at Home

    Health and Safety shared this Parent Student Screening document as a guide to share with families for conducting self-screening at home.

    Public Meeting Wednesday

    Wednesday we will conduct our annual, required public meeting to share academic accountability data and response plans. If you plan to attend, please email Ben.OConnor@pfisd.net so that we can provide you with a Zoom Link. The meeting will begin at 5:00 pm this Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

    Car Riders

    Parents, we need your assistance with ensuring a safe start to each school day here at Cele. Students may not be dropped off prior to and must remain in cars until staff members begin receiving students at 7:55 a.m. If your schedule does not allow you to wait until 7:55 a.m. for drop off, we ask that you send your student on the assigned bus (information below). During morning arrival, we will ask all cars to pull all the way up along the curb in front of a staff member who will be there to take your child’s temperature. If students have a temperature above 100 Fahrenheit, we will retake the temperature. Students who again have a temperature above 100 degrees will be unable to attend school and must follow the return to school protocol. 

    How to Find my Bus Stop

    Parents, you can verify your child’s bus stop and bus number using InfoFinder. Simply type in your address and click “search.” Bus information for all schools you are zoned to will be displayed.

    What if my child is absent from Virtual Learning?

    One of the benefits of Remote Learning is that students who are not well enough to be at school may still feel well enough to participate and stay caught up on their classes. Other times, a child may be too sick to participate or may need to miss a day of virtual school altogether. Any time a child is absent, parents must notify our Attendance Office within three business days, and the same day whenever possible. Virtual sick notes  or notes regarding a student’s absence may be emailed to our Attendance Specialist, Paula.Gonzales@pfisd.net Ms. Gonzales also is your resource for any and all attendance-related questions. Save her email address for future reference; you never know when you may need it.
