Dear Huebner Families,
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all dealt with the possible threat made to elementary campuses across the city. I know the students and faculty felt more secure with the Watch D.O.G.s stationed at every school door. We deeply appreciated their presence on our campus last week and throughout the year. In addition, one of our parents, who happens to be a San Antonio Police Officer, remained close to Huebner during the past week along with a North East Police Officer. Please know that we will continue to maintain a safe learning environment for your child/children.
Our Destination Imagination Team is headed for Knoxville, Tennessee to compete in the Global Competition on May 20 – 24, 2014. Congratulations to the following team members – Madison Bunce, Alyssa Monnin, Cole Cueva, Sonya Muguerza, Michael DeHoyos and Jacob Stow. We are very proud of these students and their sponsors, Stefanie Schropp and Erika Weber. I know they will represent Huebner and NEISD well as they move on to the next level.
Earth Week activities will take place the week of May 5th. Our PTA, under the guidance of Stacy Pierce, planned a week of educational activities to enhance student understanding of ways to care for our planet. Students have an opportunity to engage in interactive work stations as well as composting, gardening and recycling lessons. Art lessons based on the work of Georgia O’Keefe are also planned for the students. See the attached calendar for additional Earth Day activities.
Our K-2 students will take the End of Year TPRI (Texas Primary Reading Inventory) Test starting the week of April 28th. The results from this test will demonstrate student reading growth for the 2013-2014 school year.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 14th from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. for Huebner’s Leadership Night. You will learn about Leader in Me on our campus and participate in family activities to “Sharpen the Saw”.
Huebner teachers and staff will honor all Churchill graduates that attended Huebner with a reception on Wednesday, May 7th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. This is an annual event that we all cherish as we let all our former Huskies know how proud we are of them and their accomplishments.
As this school year comes to an end, several teacher and staff changes will take place at Huebner for the 2014-2015 school year. Several of our outstanding staff members will be moving over the summer - Jaime Biondi, library assistant, will be moving to Pennsylvania and Maggie Knobbe, instructional assistant, will be moving back to Kansas. Laurie Harris, 5th grade teacher, decided to retire after 20 years of teaching. We will greatly miss these educators. I will keep you updated of further changes during the summer months.
May is filled with numerous events and celebrations such as Earth Day activities, ORFFestra Concert, Leader in Me Night, Track Meet, Talent Show, Battle of the Books, and Market Day. Please check out the calendar for specific dates and times! Thank you for your continued support throughout the year!
I feel grateful every day to be part of such an outstanding community. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
