Our Approach
At Cypress K-8 Center we are moving towards excellence through the 3 R’s Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
Welcome to our new website Cypress Families !!!
We had a great "First Week of School", and are super excited that everyone's back and eager to learn!
Parents, please remember that all students must report to the cafeteria in the morning. Teachers will pick-up students at their designated time. All Pre-K-First grade students will be picked up rpomptly at 8:15. All 2nd grade- 6th grade students will be picked up promptly at 8:25. Please do not wait outside of the classroom. We want to ensure the safety of all students and need your cooperation in following the school arrival policy.

During dismissal time, we ask that parents pick up your children by the front gates of the school. Please arrive at your child's classroom door, and he/she will be dismissed to you. If we all follow this rule, we will ensure a quick and safe dismissal.

Should you need further information, please see Ms. Copeland in the main office.

Breakfast is FREE for all students and is served starting at 7:30am.

We look forward to working together with you and your child(ren)!

Have a GREAT day!!

Caleah Davidson
Caleah is very respectful.  She always says “Yes or No Mam”.  Additionally, she always says “Please”, “Thank You”, “Excuse Me” etc…   To all who know Caleah, they agree, she has very good manners.  She is an excellent example of a respectful student and should be recognized for that.

School Club News

To further our mission, Cypress K-8 Center offers a variety of extra-curricular clubs for our students to join and are offered to as many students as possible.
Some clubs are open to all students while enrollment in others is by invitation or audition.
Most clubs require a teacher recommendation before a student may join. 

As with any school function, appropriate behavior and effort is required to continue with any of the programs. Continuous attendance is required so the student can gain the most benefit from the programs. 

Students who are in the After School Care program can participate in the following clubs.

JV Basketball

The students in cheerleading lead our school in creating an atmosphere of support for our sports teams as well as a fun culture where school spirit is a driving force.
4th, 5th & 6th Grade students who have demonstrated leadership qualities on a regular basis are chosen to assist the faculty and staff in school functions that support the school and community. 
5th & 6th grade students interested in running for Student Council Officers campaign the 1st month of school.  Homeroom Representatives are selected after officers elections have been conducted and they are selected by their classmates and their homeroom teachers.
Our goal is to improve our school. We participate in canned food drives, toy drives and other activities to serve the community. Representatives are responsible students and are expected to work independently. They should have a "1" in effort and an "A" in conduct as they are representing their class and are the leadership role models for our school.
6th grade students begin training to compete again rival schools. Through had work and teambuilding students learn the value of sportsmanship and sport disciplines.
