We want our parents involved so please join us on Thursday May 3rd at 6PM for a Parent Advisory Meeting here at HSA.  Yes, your ideas and opinions are valued by us.

No School on Friday!   Have a safe and fun 3 day weekend.

Here are the May testing dates for STAAR.  (Link included)

2018 May STAAR Dates

We want to wish our front office staff a HAPPY SECRETARY’S DAY!!!!!!

In addition to compulsory attendance law, districts are required to enforce the 90 percent rule, which states that students in grades K-12 must attend class for 90 percent of the time it is offered to receive credit or a final grade. The 90 percent rule applies to all absences, including excused absences.  Help us by making sure our students make it to school and arrive on time.

Let’s make sure that we finish the school year STRONG!  Make sure your child has the school supplies needed to finish the school year (this includes pens, pencils and paper.)

Wanting to purchase a yearbook? Now is the time!    https://goo.gl/WpfpdB

Next week Tuesday, April 10, 2018-Friday, April 13, 2018, we will have STAAR testing.  .  The campus will be closed to visitors.
Thank you for your cooperation and GOOD LUCK to our students.
 

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Initiative (T-STEM)

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.

Prior to the 2011-2012 school year, the only path to become a T-STEM Academy was a T-STEM Academy grant through the Texas Education Agency or one of the private partners in the Texas High School Project.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, a second pathway was created. Campuses, using local or other sources of funding, that are implementing the T-STEM Design Blueprint with fidelity may apply to be designated as a T-STEM Academy. T-STEM campuses are designated based on a rigorous designation process. Once a campus is designated, professional development and technical assistance are provided to designated T-STEM academies to serve as demonstration schools and learning labs to showcase innovative instruction methods which integrate technology and engineering into science and mathematics instruction. Designated T-STEM campuses serve students in grades 6-12 or 9-12.
