WOW!  What a way to end a school year!  When I left for spring break I had no idea I would not step back into my classroom until May 21st.  It has been a very emotional ending to our school year.  Please recharge over the summer, have fun, enjoy the outdoors, and make memories with your family.  

I can't wait until August 13th so that I can see you all again!  To my kids going on to middle school or moving; I am so sorry we did not get to say goodbye!  I know we will see each other again. Please keep in touch!  

Love you all! - Mrs. Salinas


school's out

I will be starting tutorials after school in the next few weeks.  Please be on the lookout for a letter. If you are interested in your child receiving help after school, please contact me through email ksalinas@g-pisd.org or on Remind.  I will be pulling students 3rd-5th for TEKS based tutorials in preparation for the STAAR test, and will pull K-2 for enrichment in needed areas. 

Please make sure you are reading over winter break. Students can track their reading through Book Taco. They can log minutes and pages read, and take tests on books. You can access Book Taco through Clever from any device by going to Clever.com.  Students can use their QR code or standard email and password to log-in. If you have any questions, please contact me. 


I am so excited to start of the 2019-2020 school year.  This will be a super year with tons of learning. Please contact me if you have any questions for this year.  You can find my information on the right for Remind, Flipgrid, and Twitter. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday!  - Mrs. Salinas 


Students and Families, 

Have a super summer!  Spend lots of time outside and enjoying your time together.  I look forward to a great  year when we return. I will officially be Mrs. Salinas next school year, so start practicing the new name. :)  5th Graders, I will miss you so much!  Please keep up the hard work!  Keep on reading!   Love, Ms. Ezell



WOW!!!! What an amazing first three weeks we have had!  I can not believe how fast those three weeks flew by.  I can tell already this year is going to be a fast one.  

I hope that your summer was relaxing and S L O W.  It never seems like we get enough time with family.  My goal this year is to balance family and work better.  There are many exciting things happening for me this year.  October 20th I will become Mrs. Salinas! I spent lots of time this summer planning my wedding, and can not wait for the big day. 

I look forward to a fun year with your kiddos!  If you need to contact me I'm always available through email: kezell@g-pisd.org or through Remind by sending a text to 81010 with the message @msezellcr 


It's been a great school year!  I look forward to seeing everyone next school year and seeing how much they've grown over the summer.  Good luck to the students moving on to 6th grade.  You will be missed.  Keep working hard and make us proud!  Have a fun and safe summer!  <3 Miss Ezell

End of Year

Dear Parents and families,

As we approach the end of another school year, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your children. It has been a busy and very successful school year for WCA teachers and students. They have been an absolute pleasure to teach and we have enjoyed watching them improve and succeed.

After this week, I will be discontinuing tutorials for the remainder of the year to give students time to relax before STAAR.  STAAR Math and Reading for 3rd and 4th grades will be taken on May 14th and 15th.  Retests for 5th grade will be on these days as well.  I want to give everyone a chance to unwind a little prior to STAAR.  We are rapidly reviewing for STAAR in the classroom daily!

Warmest regards,

Miss Ezell

Will be updated soon. 


We work to meet the individual needs of your children. Please help us by keeping open communication with Special Education teachers, General Education teachers, and all other specialized support services that your child receives(speech, OT, PT, etc). Continuing to practice at home will only make your child a stronger student and will help them retain information taught in class. This will also help them build a generalization across other contexts and environments.
