Points of Pride
Ysleta Elementary School is the flagship school at the Ysleta Independent School District. With over 100 years of rich history, we look forward to a bright and promising future. Our current campus was opened in 1998 and serves a proud community rich with tradition and pride.
Ysleta Elementary serves approximately 520 students, providing an outstanding dual language program and participating in the Raise Your Hand Texas, Raising Blended Learners Network, where our goal is to personalize learning for every student. Our students in 2nd through 5th grade will have access to 1 to 1 chrome books and our Kinder and 1st grade will have access to 1 device per every 2 students.
I am proud that our campus, in collaboration with the city of El Paso, provide a very affordable afterschool program; we also collaborate with Ysleta High School to bring after school sports camps to our 3rd-5th grade students. We love to showcase all of our students throughout the school year, but especially during our Christmas program and end of year Talent Showcase. Our goal is to provide avenues for students not only to achieve at high levels academically but, also pursue other talents and interests.
We welcome our young scholars to another exciting school year and thank our amazing and loyal community for their commitment and support!
Ysleta Elementary School is 1 of 2 schools in our district that will be partnering up with Raise Your Hand Texas to implement Blended Learning at our campus. Our campus has a 1:1 device for students in grades 2nd-5th grade. There will be a 1:2 device ratio for students in Kinder and 1st grade.
Our school is currently working to create collaboration spaces through out our school where students will be able to come together and work collaboratively.
We currently have partnered with the city of El Paso to have an afterschool program that runs from 2:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Students have the opportunity to work on their homework and they are also provided with activities and a snack.
Ysleta High School works with Ysleta Elementary coaches to provide afterschool sports camps to give our students the opportunity to learn skills to that sport.
Ysleta Elementary offers students in 5th grade to join either band or orchestra, giving students the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.
At the end of the school year, our school holds an EngageMe showcase where students are given the opportunity to showcase projects that they have worked on during the school year.
STAAR Testing will take place next week. Please make sure that your child gets a good night's rest the day before so that they can be ready!!
