The 2014–2015 Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) are now available. The TAPR combines details of district and campus academic performance with financial reports and information about staff, programs, and demographics.
Flu season is upon us. Please take a moment to read about symptoms and what you can do to help prevent the spread of the flu.
We would like to thank everyone for being patient and compliant as we put the new traffic pattern into place for this school year. We feel the pros of this new procedure greatly outweigh the cons. Traffic is clear on 181 and 775 and we are currently getting all cars in the line unloaded by 7:30 AM. We greatly appreciate everyone who is currently utilizing the back entrance off of CR 128 and staying in the designated car line.
However, we are concerned about some serious safety issues that are occurring as a result of the new traffic pattern. As such, we are making some minor changes.
Due to the increase in traffic on HWY 181 and FM 775, there are major changes to the car line pick-up and drop-off procedures at FNES for the 2015-2016 school year. Please review these procedures, along with the attached map, and contact FNES with any questions or concerns. The school phone number is (830) 393-5310.
Fourth grade students at FNE took their writing up a notch as they learned about splashes of development and effective introductions during an interactive writing camp today. Kelly Kratke from The Writing Academy had students jumping up with answers and ignoring cramps in their hands (from all that writing!) as they were eager to show off their paragraphs.
Mrs. Bauer’s and Ms. Gonzales’ class teamed up to present procedural text posters. The students had an impressive set of skills making samples and showing their creations to all classmates. They have been learning about sequencing and the importance of following steps in order.
1st-5th Grade students in Mrs. Pfeil’s GT class at FNE tasted success today! After researching the history of gingerbread, students applied what they learned to the construction of their very own gingerbread houses.

Thank you to Texas State University for donating a t-shirt to each of the students in Mrs. Rethaber’s second grade class at FNE. Mrs. Rethaber alerted her alma mater of the college-going culture we promote at FISD, and they were eager to be a part of it. Students said the shirts are “awesome” and “cool to wear.” These little Tigers and Jaguars just may become Bobcats in time!
