Parent Info

​​We hope that you are preparing for all the wonderful festivities that Thanksgiving has planned.  Here are a few things happening this final week.

If you have not already viewed your student's report card, it is available in HAC.  If you have any questions concerning grades, please contact your student's teacher first.  They will usually have the correct answer.

STAAR Test Prep

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 I'd like to share some information about the help available for your students for the upcoming English STAAR EOC exams:

  • Noredink.com is a free, online program that can be accessed from any tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. It is possible that students  already have an account and have been using this website in their current English class. If so, please encourage them to utilize more of the grammar lessons and practice this site offers as many of the skills tested on the STAAR exam are reviewed here (and not all have been assigned by teachers). If your student does not have an account, no problem! They may create one by using their school email address and the class code: pretty glove 57.
  • Students scheduled to test in December are also invited to attend SuperSTAAR workshops on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays: November 14, 16, 28, and 30 from 3:45-5:00 in the library. We will provide engaging activities in preparation for both the English I and English II tests. It is encouraged, but not mandatory, that students attend each workshop as we will offer lessons strengthening key reading and writing skills to be tested.

    Please encourage your students to take advantage of this help offered to them. If you have any questions about your student and/or the upcoming tests (English I  on Monday, December 4 and English II on Wednesday, December 6), you are welcome to contact me any time.

CHS Student Success

​Last weekend CHS had three students compete in the Texas A&M Math contest.  Vallabh goes by VK around school.

 Avi Khurana, Luc and Vallabh Kudva represented Central High School at Texas A&M High school Math contest.

 Top 10 students/teams in each section of the exam were recognized.

 In the DE section (Pre-Calculus) Vallabh was placed 8th.

In the Best student closed section Vallabh was placed 5th.

 Some of the best students from Texas Mathcounts were present at the exam including past National champions.

 In its inaugural year, the Business Management & Administration Practicum is getting its feet wet and doing well.  Though small in numbers, we look forward to future growth due in large part to the outstanding educators and students involved in our perquisite courses!

 One of our goals this year has been to reach out and establish connections with the community through internships.  We are aware of the encouragement at the district level, and we are enthusiastically doing our part to get some up and running.

 As an assignment, the students reviewed the Keller Chamber of Commerce website and identified potential partners with which they would enjoy working.  We made initial contact with the City of Keller, Mind-Over-Matter, Sky Creek Ranch Golf, and Lucas Funeral Home.  Each that we were able to speak with were very receptive to the possibilities!  We feel both parties, if partnered, will benefit!

 In addition, these students have also effectively split their time between completing the new OWS curriculum and setting up/running Charge and Go, our campus store

Look out world!  You have some great ones coming your way!

 Keller ISD believes the development of character is an essential part of life.  These principles must be modeled, taught, expected, encouraged, and recognized by students, parents, educators, and community members.  Each month staff members will nominate students for outstanding character traits. October's character trait was COURAGE. Congratulations to the following ROCK stars:

  • Omar Adams
  • Rishin Daniel
  • John Feeney
  • Molly Lavender
  • Mikey Miller
  • Drake Pearson
  • Zayra Rodriguez
  • Austin Siguar
  • Hailey Sloan
  • Rodney Thompson
  • Megan Doss
  • Cassandra Torman
  • Molly Burk
  • Maggie Burk

 Principles of Human Services classes will be celebrating cultures from around the world by preparing recipes from different countries for a tasting on October 31st and November 3rd.

 CHS Football had Jacob Felczak win Star Telegram Defensive player of the week last week for his performance in the game against Abilene and Matt Girard win this week for his performance against Keller.  Noah Moreno was second and Richard Silva was 3rd in voting this week as well.  Central has had 4 nominees for defensive player of the week in the last two weeks.   http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/dfwvarsity/prep-football/article179603516.html

 Global Minds Initiative is a new club on our campus.  We are part of a national organization started by a high school student to unite students regardless of cultural background and language.  Students will learn about other cultures, serve the community, discuss international news, support each other academically, and make new friends.  We meet every Tuesday at 4:00pm in Mrs. John's room, C102.  Our student leaders for the year are Mirian Fernandez, Avash Bhattarai, Ji Woo Kim, Rose Hirunthanaphuri, and Christine Nguyen.
