A Note from the Principal

Dear Hemmenway Parents & Guardians,

February is here! This years seems to be flying by, but boy are we having a great time learning and growing daily! I have been so impressed with our students and how they have been working hard academically, behaviorally and socially. We've really enjoyed having parent events brought back this school year after having a shut down with Covid-19 last year. However, we are having to now look forward to ensure the safety of both our staff and students. Please know we are working diligently to keep our campus safe while still having fun and learning along the way! Thank you for always supporting Hemmenway!

Superintendent's Fun Run - April 9, 2022

Dear CFISD Community,

I invite you all to join me for the ninth annual Superintendent’s Fun Run on April 9, 2022! Registration for the highly anticipated community event, which features a 5K run and 1-mile family-friendly course, a fun-filled kids zone, student performances, vendors, and food trucks is now open. The event will take place at the Berry Center, with the 5K winding through Towne Lake and Lone Star College—CyFair, and the 1-mile course will take participants through Cy-Fair FCU Stadium.

Proceeds from the Superintendent’s Fun Run benefit the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF), which awards student scholarships and staff development grants, directly benefitting our CFISD community. Because of the generosity of our parents, students, staff, business partners, and community members, we have contributed more than $635,000 to the CFEF in the last eight years, and I hope you will join us for another successful event!

Please enjoy this brief video and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to register!

Sign up as a Hemmenway parent or student to show your support!

2022 Superintendent Fun Run Registration is now open!

Lost & Found

We have lots of coats and jackets that have been left by students and now find their home in our Lost and Found. We will be moving those racks into our vestibule area, so if you are ever dropping off a note or student lunch, please look to see if any of these items belong to your child. Thank you!
