Welcome to the Childress Elementary School website. Childress Elementary is the educational home of more than 500 of the best and brightest elementary students in the State of Texas.
 
The Texas Education Agency announced accountability ratings in early August of 2015. Childress Elementary MET STANDARD and was awarded two Distinctions Designations.
     Academic Achievement in Reading/LA
     Academic Achievement in Math
 
Our high rate of success did not happen by accident, nor can it be attributed to luck. Instead, it was the direct result of the superior skills, hard work, and dedication of all of the teachers, teachers’ aides, and support staff here at CES. Nothing less than seeing each and every student reach his or her full potential is acceptable to any of them. This year several people have joined the CES family. We are excited to have them and know that they are firmly committed to working with the rest of the staff to maintain the high level of excellence that we have established over the years at Childress Elementary.
 
Some important information are listed below:
Breakfast is free for all students wanting to eat breakfast at school.  Students may go to the cafeteria between 7:30 and 7:55.
 
The school day will be from 8:00 am to 3:30 p.m.
 
96% Rule - Students having 96% attendance for the year will hot have to attend school the last week of school.
 
Each year Childress Elementary develops a “motto” that is used throughout the school to excite and engage students, and enhance their learning to continue their education. For the 2017-2018 school year the theme is “Texas Proud - College Bound"  It is our goal for students to have a plan after high school to do one of the following -Career Schools - Two year College - Four year university, military.
 
The PAWZ-TV News room is run each morning by 5th grade students. The show is broadcast at 8:03 on Sudden Link (channel 3) and put on the CISD web site each day. Be sure and tune in.
 
Thanks to the continuing support of the Childress ISD board of trustees and our superintendent, Mr. Rick Teran the safety of our students is of utmost importance to CISD.
 
I would also like to express my sincere appreciation to our parents, our parent teacher organization, and the many other individuals and organizations that have so generously given their time, their talents, and their financial support to our school and to our students, 
 
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that you will also be able to visit our campus.
