  • February Teacher Appreciation is Stock the Fridge

    Show the Pomona teachers and staff how much we love them this February by helping to Stock the Fridge starting this week through Valentine's Day. This is a great way to be a part of a PTO activity without requiring in-person volunteer time. 

    Please consider signing up to bring an item (or two) for our teachers, here.  Simply drop-off your treats in the PTO bins located at the front of the school or at the car rider drop off line. 

    Thanks for all you do to support our school!

  • Volunteer this Holiday Season

    It's the yo ho holidays, and we need your help, Pirate family. We've got two exciting volunteer opportunities that will be so meaningful to children and teachers alike. 

    The Holiday Store (December 1 and 2)

    Students will have the opportunity to shop for their loved ones at the Holiday Store on December 1st or 2nd at Pomona Elementary. In order to make this possible for our little Pirates, we need Pirate Elves to help work the store. You'll work a short shift and partner with a PTO Board Member to help students make decisions to find exactly what they need. 

    Click here to sign up for a shift now. 

    The Gift of Time (December 6-14)

    The December Teacher Appreciation event is the Gift of Time. We would like to give the teachers time to leave campus and go to lunch with each other - enjoy some good food and good company!

    We need a volunteer to cover each teacher's class for an hour and 15 minutes. In most cases, volunteers will work the cafeteria for lunch and the playground for recess, but some lunch periods do not align, and, in those cases, volunteers may show a movie in the classroom.

    Click here to sign up for a shift now.

    Volunteer Requirements

    Alvin ISD requires all volunteers to register and undergo a criminal history background check prior to volunteering.  The process is free and takes less than five minutes to complete.  If you haven’t already done so, visit this link to register as an Alvin ISD volunteer.  Registration forms are available in both English and Spanish.

  • Alvin ISD Seeks Feedback on 2022-2023 Calendar

    Originally posted by Alvin ISD, November 9, 2021:

    Alvin Independent School District wants to hear from students, staff, parents, and community members about the draft academic calendar for the 2022-2023 school year.

    The DEIC is comprised of parents, community leaders, and staff members. One of the committee’s responsibilities is to create an academic calendar. The committee has created a draft academic calendar that they feel would best suit the instructional needs of students, parents, and staff while following the state’s statutory calendar requirements for students and teachers.

    Please note: August 17, 2022, will be the first day of school for our transition students, grades PK/K, 6th, and 9th grades. The first day of school for all other grades will be August 18, 2022. The Transition Day is a day that allows for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 6th graders, and 9th graders to attend classes a day earlier than the rest of the district in a limited student capacity to get acclimated to a new campus.

    The feedback will be presented to the DEIC in December for review and consideration.
    The DEIC plans to submit its recommended calendar to the Alvin ISD School Board for final approval in January.
