FTE Rocks!


For our all district diversity project every FTE student needs to bring in a smooth unpolished rock (approximately 4 inches), which we will transform into fish. Students need to bring their rocks to school by Monday, Feb. 26th!





WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Do your friends and/or neighbors have a child that will be five years old by the first of September?  Please help us spread the word!  "Official" kindergarten registration for the 2019-2020 school year will be conducted on Wednesday, March 27th from 9:00–10:00 A.M. in the Forest Trail cafeteria. 


At 9:00 on March 27th, all incoming kindergartners and their parents will meet in the cafeteria.  At that time the children will be divided into small groups and taken to the kindergarten classrooms with one of the kindergarten teachers.  Parents will remain in the cafeteria for a question and answer session hosted by one of the kindergarten teachers, the counselor, and the principal.  After approximately 30 minutes, the children will rejoin their parents in the cafeteria where they may enjoy a morning snack. The morning will conclude with an official EISD school bus ride.  For your convenience, the rear doors to the school will be unlocked that morning to allow for parking in both the front and rear of the school.


To be eligible for kindergarten, a child must be 5 years of age on or before September l, 2019.  Enrollment for incoming kindergarteners is online at  Beginning March 4th at 10:00 am, parents may access and complete the on-line required forms.  We request parents of next year's kindergarten students make every effort to complete the on-line registration by the morning of March 27th.  The registration information is essential to determine the staff needed and the number of classrooms required.


After completing the on-line enrollment forms, parents will need to bring the following to the Front Office:


  •  an original copy of child's birth certificate, preferably with a photocopy


  •  a photocopy of child's social security card


  •  a photocopy of child's completed immunization record (*This is required before school starts.)     


  •  a photocopy of guardian's valid driver's license


  •  (2) proofs of residency in EISD (current utility bill and copy of lease agreement, deed contract or recent tax receipt.


We encourage parents to turn these in any time prior to Kinder Roundup. Our receiving these

items in advance gives us additional time to review the materials and will reduce your waiting time on

registration day.  If it is not possible to obtain a photocopy of these materials before registration, a copier will be available in the front office.  Parents may bring originals with them, and a member of our staff will help make any copies needed.


Miscellaneous forms will be found in Kinder Packets (i.e. FTE Directory Form, Bus Buddy form, School Supply information, Kindergarten Day information, etc.) and will be available for pickup in our school office beginning Monday, March 4th.
