I cordially invite all of you to join the Huebner Huskies in our annual gardening adventure on Sunday, May 5, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Our plan is to clean up trails planted last year, spread new mulch in the gardens and plant a beautiful tree in memory of our beloved Kindergarten student, Jaxon Davis. In addition, Naturalist, Thea Platz, will speak about the importance of developing gardens and hands-on experiences in our Outdoor Classroom! Once again our Watch D.O.G.S. will provide a barbecue lunch for all attending. The children love and benefit from being out in nature planting flowers or vegetables, taking responsibility for their growth and knowing that they were a part of beautifying the school. I hope you all can take part in this wonderful community event! “Let’s leave no child left inside.”
Huebner teachers and staff will honor all Churchill graduates that attended Huebner with a reception on Wednesday, May 1st 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.
Our K-2 students will take the End of Year TPRI (Texas Primary Reading Inventory) Test starting the week of April 29th. The results from this test will demonstrate student reading growth for the 2012-2013 school year.
As this school year comes to an end, several changes will take place at Huebner. Jackie Herring, 3rd grade teacher, has decided to retire this year and Alexandra Villalobos, 5th grade teacher, is getting married and moving with her new husband to Galveston. We will greatly miss both of these outstanding educators. Courtney Moke will move up to teach our 5th graders and Jillian Curtis will join the 4th grade team.
May is filled with numerous events and celebrations such as the Orffestra Concert, Track Meet, Talent Show, Battle of the Books, Market Day, Field Day and Summer Reading Night etc. 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.
