As we look ahead to the 2016-2017 school year and Barbara Austin Elementary celebrates its 29th year, I would like to welcome each of our new and returning families. We have a long tradition of excellence, and this year with the addition of the district’s Pre-K program, we will have the opportunity to spread that tradition of excellence to a whole new group of kids and families! If you are new to Austin this year (as a Pre-K OR K-5 family), allow me to personally welcome you to our Austin community. The staff is looking forward to serving your family, and I trust that you will soon find that Austin is a great place to grow and learn!
As we get closer to the launch of the new school year, here are a few important dates to remember:
- August 9th – Spanish Pre-K Parent Orientation 5:30-7:00
