What a great week! I love showcasing our student leaders and our staff did a wonderful job preparing the Most Valuable Leader Nights. I am super proud to be part of such a great school. Thank you Staff, Students, and Parents involved!
Dr. Bobbi Turnbo will begin as the T.H.E. Principal Substitute on February 12, 2014. She is excited to be here with us and we are truly appreciative that we get to have her here. She comes with much experience and expertise! My family will welcome our newest member, Kynleigh Smith Bailey on February 13th, and I will be out for around 8 weeks. I plan to return in April.

With recent accidents in our NEISD area, I would like to call your attention to the school zone as well as the areas just behind our school. We have many walkers that travel to/from school. Please be mindful of your speed, use of cell phones (cell phones prohibited in the school zone when light is flashing), and the cross streets. We have crosswalks within our school zone; however, there are some areas our students cross just behind the school zone I wish to ask for you to take extreme caution. For example, corner of Mountain Lodge and Wilderness. We have many students that cross Mountain Lodge to continue along the sidewalk to access their neighbors from Wilderness Oak side, so please be mindful of this intersection and our students. We will discuss walker safety with them, but want to reach out to our parents to help as well! Thank you for taking good care of your children, our students, and our community children.
T.H.E. Volunteer Opportunity
Hey Tigers! We have a great opportunity for you to earn volunteer hours while helping out T.H.E. As you know, our annual PTA Run for the Heights is on Saturday, February 22, 2014! We want to be sure our campus looks beautiful for everyone who comes out. On Saturday, February 15 from 10am to 12pm we will have a campus clean up. Our goal is to pick up litter, pull weeds, and to plant flowers and decorate the campus. Light refreshments and trash bags will be provided. It would be helpful for those participating to bring their own gloves and gardening tools. We ask that parents plan to stay as we will not be able to closely watch the students as they spread out around the campus. See you there!
