Important Information From Our Administrative Staff

 We are pleased to make you aware of an interior renovation to our campus that will create more space for hallway traffic and reduce congestion during passing periods. In February, the Anthony staff began preparing for the removal of half the number of hallway lockers—a renovation that has taken place at multiple CFISD middle schools. 

 We welcome this change at Anthony, where textbooks are accessible online as well as available in the classroom for instruction. The reduction of lockers presents fewer opportunities for student tardies, as they will have more time to move to class or use the restroom between periods. Our students have already transitioned smoothly to carrying supplies in their backpacks to class since being made aware of the change in May.

 Please feel free to contact an administrator at 281-373-5660 if you have questions.

Raven Parents and Guardians!

Today was a great first day of school!  Please remind your student that students who are eating breakfast will report to the cafeteria at 7:05 a.m., and students who are not eating breakfast will report to their first period class by 7:15 a.m.

 Students should have brought home the Anthony Parent Reference Guide and important flyers to help answer questions regarding campus procedures.  As you have daily conversations with your student about his/her school day, please visit the teachers’ websites to be informed about instructional topics discussed in the classrooms and frequently monitor your student’s grades by using the Home Access Center mobile app or visiting www.cfisd.net.

Please discard last year’s school ID badge because it has been deactivated.  Most students received a new badge today.  For students who did not receive a badge today, they were issued a temporary badge and will receive a permanent badge soon.  For student safety, all students are required to visibly wear their badge on the district provided lanyard at all times while on campus.  Students who are riding the bus will scan the badge when entering and exiting the school bus.

Also, below is the link to the district’s student insurance webpage.

 Thanks!

Raven Parents:

The first day of school is Monday, August 27th.  Below are a few reminders:

 School Hours

  • School Hours: 7:25 AM – 2:40 PM

Student Schedules

  • On the first day of school, 6th graders will pick up their class schedule in the cafeteria; 7th graders will pick up their schedule in the Auxiliary Gym; and, 8th graders will pick up their schedule in the Performance Gym. 
  • Reminder: Tentative schedules were distributed at Raven Express.  Each year, there is the potential for changes in the schedules due to the leveling of classes and master schedule changes.  Please keep in mind that the counselors have worked very hard to keep the changes to a minimum; therefore, elective change, teacher change and lunch change requests will not be allowed.  Thanks for your understanding.

7th grade students

Texas Administrative Code Rule §97.63 states that all 7th grade students must have TDAP & MCV4 vaccines as school entry requirements. An updated immunization record reflecting these two vaccines must be on file with the school nurse in order to get a schedule and attend classes. You may email your 7th grader’s current immunization record to Nurse Henry at [email protected], or you may fax a copy of the immunization record to 281-373-2560.

 Transportation

  • To keep students safe and to manage the flow of traffic, we ask parents to allow the student to ride the bus or use the car rider line for student drop-off.  Please do not escort students inside the building unless registering the student.
  • Students will receive their badge at the beginning of the school year.  Students will be required to wear the badge while at school and to ride the bus.
  • The doors will open at 7:00AM for student drop-off and for students who walk to school.
  • Student walkers can enter the building using the front door or the doors on either side of the cafeteria.
  • Map Link Included: Morning car riders should be dropped off only in the designated areas on the Tuckerton side of Anthony Middle School.  Parents should enter the driveway and pull all the way up to the closest stop sign on the attached map before releasing students along the covered area.  Allow the entire round of cars to pull all the way up.  The inner drop-off route will be opened around 7:05AM to allow for two lanes of drop-off. Please pull all the way up to this stop sign as well to allow for students to exit safely and walk only to the designated “student walkway” to cross traffic. The safety of our students is always our highest priority. AM Map for Email.png
  • Map Link Included: Afternoon car riders should be picked up in the designated area on the Tuckerton side of Anthony Middle School.  Parents should enter and pull all the way up to the stop sign on the attached map.  Students will be expected to be on the lookout for their vehicle and the front 8 or so cars will be loaded before we ask the next round of cars to pull all the way up.  The safety of our students is always our highest priority. PM Map for Email.png
  • Late buses will not be available the first week of school. Late buses will begin September 4th for only students who participate in band and orchestra or for students who are trying out for a sport or staying after school for practice.  Tutoring will start September 11th, and late buses will be available.

Athletics

  • All student athletes must have a completed physical on file with the coach along with the online participation form in order to try-out, practice and participate in any sport.  Students without a physical and the online participation form completed will be placed in PE.
  • Parents can access the online participation form by going to www.cfisd.net -> parents and students -> athletics --> athletics information and forms -> athletic physical information.
  • Athletes will not be able to get football equipment unless the student has the physical on file and complete the online participation form.
