Write-A-Check Fundraising Campaign

The Write-A-Check donations continue to come in and we are thrilled to announce that we have reached our goal of $100,000! The Archers Council would like to thank all of our families that have participated in the Write-A-Check Campaign. If you would still like to participate in the campaign, donations can be made online throughout the year at

Archers Council Video: The Archers Council put together a fun, short video to introduce themselves to our community and to give you more information about how they support our school including how funds have been spent from the Write-A-Check Campaign. Click here to download their video or visit their webpage to learn about the ways they serve our school!

Out of Breakfast Packs

there is a delay in shipment of our breakfast packs and we are currently out of stock. We will let our families know when our shipment arrives and are able to serve breakfast again.


School Communication

Our campus uses JupiterEd to send communication from both the school and the teachers. Students and parents should check JupiterEd often. You may also go to Settings and check the boxes on how you would like to receive emergency alerts, messages, behavior alerts (includes detentions), absences and grades. We use the Archers in Action school newsletter to communicate general information from our school office, important dates, events and volunteer information. This information is updated weekly and posted on our website under the For Our Families tab. This is a great landing page for currently enrolled families. Information that is specific to your student's classroom will come through Jupiter from the teacher.

Photo Texas Photography will be back on campus on Wednesday, November 10 to take make-up photos or retakes. Please complete this form so we will schedule your student: Picture MakeUps & Retakes

Lost & Found Clean Out

We have a large collection of lost and found items to be claimed in the front office. Please stop by if you have lost an item. Items will be out on display on Friday. Please note that we make every effort to return lost items so please put your name on your belongings. Lost & Found items not claimed by the end of the day will be donated to a local charity.

Don't Forget Your Water Bottle

Please remember to send your student with a water bottle each day. Our water fountains are not in use at this time but the water bottle filling stations are. We try to keep a stock of plastic cups in the office but we are currently out.
