MAP Testing

This week starts our end-of-semester MAP testing so attendance will be very important. Our Cougars need a good night's sleep and meals that will help maintain their stamina and focus. Most of the testing will occur during the morning and we will return to normal instruction in the afternoon. 

GH 2024-2025 Intent to Enroll Survey

We are asking current families and future families to share the exciting plans for our renovated campus and have them fill our survey indicating their interest in enrolling their future Cougars to Geneva Heights. DISD is in the midst of preparing budget and staffing allocations for the next school year and we want to make sure we attract the absolute best staff for the 24-25 school year.

Take survey here!

Our teacher's breakroom is running low on snacks. If you are able, we have an amazon wish list that can deliver snacks directly to the school! Just make sure the delivery address is set to Geneva Heights.

Lunch with your Cub

Lunch with your Cub is back! Starting October 17th, you can join your Cub on campus during their lunch period. A few things to remember:

  • Parent can only bring lunch for your own child and because of space limitation, only students of Geneva Heights are allowed in the courtyard and one parent, per child, per day.
  •  Lunch is 30 minutes and time can not be extended. 
  •  Lunch is outside in the courtyard, please dress accordingly.  If it rains or temperatures under 40F, lunches in the courtyard are automatically cancelled.
