The scholastic book fair is here from Monday, October 22nd – Friday, October 26th. Our book fair is located in the library and it is open to everyone from 7:30am to 4:00pm. Book fairs are a perfect opportunity to stock up on books for your student to read at home.

You can’t make it to the book fair in person? No problem! You can shop our book fair online at https://scholastic.com/bf/hsihouston starting TODAY until Sunday, October 28th. All items purchased online will be delivered straight to your student in their classroom.

We are implementing a major update to our dismissal procedure. Any student who is a car rider will have a barcode assigned to their name. These barcodes will take the place of the paper name tags. This will help make our dismissal run a lot faster, as teacher’s won’t have to manually type in each student name. Teachers will walk up to your car and simply scan the barcode. Our barcode codes will look similar to this:

Barcodes will be distributed during dismissal time. Teachers will come and help you place your barcodes in your windshield.

For the safety of our students, any car picking up your student must have this barcode in their window or we will not be able to release the student to you. You will be given an extra barcode for an additional car. If you need any additional barcode codes, please visit our front office.

Join us on Wednesday, November 7th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for our Parent Academy.
