One of the main assets of working and living in northwest Harris county among many is the Cy-Fair ISD in general and Fiest elementary in particular.Bernice Fiest whom the school is name after was a nuturing,caring educator to the highest level humanly possible and continued to read to our kids.Fiest ,Ms Rickett the retiring headmaster/principal who led Fiest back to exemplary status along with the committed master teachers and new teachers and the all important staff have guided the Fiest educational vessel to make port o call after port o calls with a skill level only reach by training and knowledge of the very people who will inherit the duties only with the same zest and zeal as the wonderful educators continue to do,so in closing HIGH WINDS AND CALM SEAS,

Fiest may have been a mighty elementary school at one time, but the times are changing. The teachers and faculty are nice and caring, but the system seems to have taken over and they seem to be held back. Teachers will have conferences with parents but always appear to be on the defense. I blame the all-mighty Cy-Fair school district. It's just too large. Gone are the days when teachers could truly individualize a program for their students. Homework is daily district-made worksheets (no textbook for students or parents to reference) that is consistently full of misspelled words, typos, etc. There's no website to go to for resources and without textbooks how can we help the school help our students. There is a PTO (a soccer mom club that arranges for social events and some fund-raising) but there's no true school-parent interaction/collaboration. Nor do they know what true GT program is.

Fiest Elementary is so lucky to have Mrs. Reynolds on board! She is the most organized, calm, soft spoken, concerned and sweetest teacher I've ever met. She motivates learning and good behavior through praise, games, songs, and her nuturing manner. Both of my daughters were very fortunate to spend a school year with Mrs. Reynolds. I will always be grateful that their first school year was so positive and memorable. Laura Friend

Fiest could do with a teacher over hall. It is a shame that the school has not been able to maintain younger and more enthusiastic teachers. When I visit other schools within Cyfair there is a total air of difference toward the students and teachers. Fiest is so depressing and lacks the necessary attitude to foster young minds. The open classrooms are so disruptive to the point that it needs to be remodeled and walls added where walls should be.

I was the speech path at this school last year. After moving to another state and working elsewhere I have to say that Cy Fair has a great system of checks and balances that help prevent children with special needs from falling through the cracks. I miss working there and miss the help I got from the 'invisible' office staff like Mrs. Grant!

One of our children entered kindergarten in 1994 and the other one is leaving 5th grade in 2008 and the school is as good now as ever. Much credit is due to those veteran teachers who have been there 15+ years, as well as the involved parents and community!
