 School Nurses Luau at Klein Forest for
Annual Belle Blackwell Conference


More than 400 school nurses within Region 4 attended the 33rd Annual Belle Blackwell Conference hosted by the KISD nursing staff at Klein
Forest High School. This year’s professional development conference had a Hawaiian feel with the theme being “Don’t worry, be healthy.”

Special thanks to Dr. Jim Cain, KISD Health Services staff and retirees, the Klein Forest administration, food services and staff, KISD warehouse staff, and all National Honor Society (NHS) and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) student volunteers from both Klein Forest and Klein Oak. This conference would not have been such a success without their efforts.

Klein ISD Has Four Named to the Touchdown
Club Preseason Watch List


The Touchdown Club of Houston named a student-athlete from all four Klein ISD high schools to its 2011 Preseason All-Greater Houston High
School Football Team. Quarterback Nicky Baratti (Klein Oak), quarterback Matt Davis (Klein Forest), defensive back Ryan Santos (Klein Collins) and linebacker Ben Weaver (Klein High) were tabbed on this year’s watch list. The winner will be announced at the end of the 2011 season, with one offensive and one defensive player chosen among the field of 30. Last year David Santos from Klein Collins won the Defensive Player of the Year accolade.

Eiland Pride Ride Scheduled for August 20


Eiland Elementary hosts its second annual Eiland Pride Ride at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, August 20. The Klein Reading Express Bus, a Klein ISD police car, the Northwest Volunteer Fire Department, and the Eiland Cub Scout pack will join staff for this exciting kick off to the new school year.

The Pride Ride will caravan through the Eiland neighborhoods playing the school song to build enthusiasm and excitement about the start of
the new year, while creating a fun community event. Families are encouraged to join the ride, or meet back on campus for the uniform exchange, hot dogs, snow cones, popcorn, and fun!
