We anticipate this email coming to you on June 20th.​

  

​We are registering new to Keller ISD Kindergarten and 1st graders.

​Residency Verification will be completed online this year. You will receive an email from "ienroll" on July 11th with instructions on how to complete your online verification. Generally it lands in a SPAM or CLUTTER folder. The online verification will be due by July 18th. If you have any questions or need access to a computer please call the office and we will be of service.

This paperwork is used at the central administration building to verify our enrollment and it assures I will have all Freedom's teachers in place when the school year starts. I thank you in advance for completing the online paperwork or calling our campus secretary to set up an alternate time to come in to complete this vital step in getting the 2017-2018 school year started. 

  

Teachers will be making some very important phone calls on August 10th to let you know which classroom your Eagle will be in for the 2017-2018 school year. Students will then have the opportunity to meet their teacher that night from 6:30-7:30 p.m. If you ordered school supplies through our PTA, the supplies will be with your teacher​.

The Casey’s Kids Program started in 1997 when Janie Casey, a former counselor with the Keller Independent School District, discovered that a student was limiting the number of school days attended per week due to a lack of clothing. It was this student’s need that led to Ms. Casey’s mission to find a way to fund the clothing needs of students in need district-wide. Named in Janie’s honor, the Casey’s Kids Fun Run began as an effort to provide clothing, initially, and has now expanded to include other items such as school supplies and household needs. Funds are kept in Keller ISD and distributed to Keller ISD families by our school counselors.
With this being the 20th anniversary, we want lots of people out there running and walking this year. Like all years this is a family event. All ages and ability levels are encouraged to attend and participate.
