February 9, 2014
I will be saying goodbye to the students, staff, and families this week in order to welcome our newest family member, Kynleigh. As much as I look forward to this time, I do know that I will miss my other 880+ children/students. They are in great hands and learning many new things as well as exploring concepts to a greater depth. While I am out, I encourage you to reach out to my staff, your child’s teacher with any concerns you may have, and the office/admin team as well.
Dr. Bobbie 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! I will be out for around 8 weeks. I plan to return in April in time for our students to show all their knowledge on the state STAAR assessments. I am already so proud of all of them!
You can reach Dr. Turnbo at 210-407-8200 or firstname.lastname@example.org while I am out of the office.

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!
