Hello again Huebner family. We are quickly approaching the end of our second grading period/first semester. The weather is changing and the holiday season has arrived. Our students and teachers are very busy now as there will be scope and sequence assessments, a PTA meeting with a performance by our 4th and 5th grade choir, and classroom parties on December 20. The Bike Rodeo held on November 8 was a success, and we have already had a book fair in the library. Please keep an eye on our calendar for any upcoming events.
As this busy time of year arrives, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Please make sure you are aware of our start and end times for the school day. The school day begins at 7:40 a.m. and ends at 2:40 p.m. As monitoring of students begins at 7:00 a.m., for their own safety, please do not drop them off any earlier than 7:00 a.m. Also, we have very little control over traffic situations on Huebner Road in the mornings. With that in mind, please allow ample time to get your child to school, eat breakfast, and to their classroom before the tardy bell rings at 7:40 a.m. Please keep tardies to a minimum. Your child’s teacher will provide you with further information regarding our tardy policy. Besides the importance of being on time, your child’s day will start off much better when they are not rushed as they enter the classroom, and can begin their day at the same time as their friends. Attendance is one of the greatest factors in your child’s successes at school. Please familiarize yourself with Huebner’s and NEISD’s attendance policies and procedures so you and your child can enjoy the upcoming school year to the fullest.
As you may have heard from your child’s teacher, one of the best ways you can help your child in school is to read with them and allow them to read to you each night. The more opportunities your child has to read, the better student they will become in all their subjects. Sharing time reading every evening is a wonderful and fun way to spend time with your family. And with the time away from school during the winter break, there is a perfect opportunity to take a break from the ‘hustle and bustle’ and enjoy some reading time with your child.
I look forward to being part of your child’s journey through this school year. Thank you all for the tremendous support you give all of Huebner Elementary School. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
