The Acorn Fiesta was fantastic and so much fun!  Thanks to all of you for providing all the items that made our celebration a success.  Our Blue Stars had so much fun making colorful shakers, decorating crowns, getting their face painted, cracking cascarones, breaking the piñata and eating all the great food—bean and cheese tacos, bunuelos, nachos and lemonade.


Have a wonderful weekend!
Jackie, Pat, Lisa and Carrie

Dear Acorn Parents,

As most of you know, an email was sent to Northside ISD officials, issuing a threat to an unidentified elementary school this Thursday, April 24, between 9:45 and 10:50 a.m.  Officials question the credibility of the threat but must take it seriously, and encouraged all schools to step up security and be vigilant.

Here at The Acorn, on Thursday we will keep the children inside all day and not have any playground time.  At the beginning of the day we will take your child directly from your car to their classroom and at the conclusion of the day from inside the school to your car.  We will also not be admitting anyone to the school that is not and Acorn parent or family.  On that note, please remember to close the door firmly behind you at any time that you come into or leave the school.

We have been in touch with the police dept., the park police, and our patrol service, and they will all be making extra patrols by The Acorn over the next few days.

Please call if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Rich, Jo and Wendy
And The Acorn Teaching Staff
