Leander ISD's Vision is that "Every student will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."
Cypress Elementary is PROUD to be a Leader in Me Campus where we LEARN, LIVE and LEAD with the 7 Habits!
We, the Cypress Community, will aim to create a rich learning environment and promote student ownership of life-long learning through collaboration, differentiation and positive support where ALL students feel safe, loved and respected and strive to reach their maximum potential in an ever-changing world.
If your child is going to be out of school please send them with a note. District policy states that these notes need to be turned into the office within 48 hours of your child returning to school.

Skate 101 is one of our many programs for the 3rd-5th graders to learn and practice skating. They will be learning how to skate during PE from October 6th-20th, and the cost will be $10. There will be forms for program enrollment sent home in Wednesday folders later this month, so keep an eye out for those. With all of this practice, why not show off our new skills with a skate night! Our skate night is October 19th from 6:30-7:15 for A-L and 7:30-8:15 for M-Z. The skate night is just for the kiddos that have enrolled in this program and parents must be present.

Site-Based Planning Committees Need You!
Each campus within Leander ISD has a Site-Based Planning Committee (SBPC). These committees are composed of district employees, community members, business representatives and parents. SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students.
The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization. Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school.
If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call the campus your student attends no later than Friday, Sept. 4.
