Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season was filled with joy, laughter, and cherished moments with your loved ones. As we bid farewell to the festivities, we are excitedly preparing to welcome back our Little KIPPsters on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, for a delightful new semester filled with opportunities for growth and learning.
We will continue building on all we learned in the Fall semester to challenge ourselves and continue on the path to success.
Re-enrollment time for our current Little KIPPsters is January 8-31, 2024.
Beginning next week on Monday, January 8, I want to extend a warm invitation to welcome back your beloved Little KIPPsters to the KIPP Texas Team and Family by completing re-enrollment and committing to return for the 2024-25 school year. Re-enrolling your child secures your child’s spot at KIPP for the next school year. You can preview the process here.
