Spring Texas News Updates April 1, 2009

April 1, 2009
The Riddle Report March 31, 2009

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It took much longer than any of us anticipated, but the House is finally on a regular schedule, hearing bills every day on the floor. It seems every session we feel like we are behind the expected pace, yet we always seem to catch up. The real question is this: is it a good thing or a bad thing if we pass less legislation than normal? On the one hand, fewer laws usually means less intrusive government. On the other hand, good bills and bad bills both tend to die when we fall behind. Like my mother always told me: “There’s no piece of pie sliced so thin that it doesn’t have two sides!”

Spring ISD Kindergarten Roundup Schedule

HOUSTON – Spring ISD elementary schools will hold Kindergarten Roundup in April and May for children who will begin kindergarten in the 2009-10 school year.
Kindergarten in Spring ISD is a full-day program for children who will be five years old by Sept. 1, 2009. Registration for kindergarten is voluntary, but once a child enrolls for kindergarten, he or she becomes subject to the compulsory attendance law. That law requires a student to be in attendance at least 90 percent of the days that school is in session in order to receive credit.
