Dear Parents & Guardians,

On behalf of the staff at Maverick Elementary, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year! Our teachers have been working hard as they prepare for the upcoming year with your children. Our school theme this year is “Be Your Own Hero”! We will be incorporating Pam Allyn’s book “Every Child a Super Reader” into our Maverick culture by promoting critical thinking and higher order skills to help EVERY child become an avid reader!

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
  2. Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
  3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
  5. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
  6. Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college


There are many volunteer opportunities at Maverick. We hope you will consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. Our Parent Family Liaison, Ms. Villa will be our contact person.

It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. Please feel free to review the SAISD Student/Parent Handbook which can be accessed at under the Parents tab.

The wonderful Maverick staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to an awesome year with you and your child.
