A Message from Mrs. Haymark

Dear Vogel Texans,

As we begin to close out this school year, I wanted to express my gratitude for all that you have done this year and especially this past marking period to support all of us at Vogel. It's disappointing that we won't get to celebrate in our usual fashion, however, all of our learning communities are planning virtual awards/celebrations. You child's homebase teacher should be in touch with you regarding a virtual awards ceremony within the next week. All awards ceremonies will take place the week of May 25th. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.


Christa Haymark, Principal

    Re: Immunization requirements for incoming 7th grade

    The following immunizations are required for all incoming 7th grade students.

    Tdap - Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis vaccination

    One dose is required instead of the 10-year booster. If your child has had a tetanus-containing

    Vaccine in the past five years, the Tdap will not be required until after five years have passed.

    Meningococcal (MCV4)

    One dose is required to protect from meningococcal meningitis.

  • · If your student already had these vaccinations email the clinic copy to the school nurse at Vogel. Immunizations given over the summer need to be brought to the Junior High School in August.

Summer Movers

If your family is moving this summer or will not be attending Conroe ISD in the fall, please contact Stacey Randall at srandall@conroeisd.net. We want to ensure your child has a smooth transition to their next school! It would be a huge help if you could include what city, state and if available the name of the new school the student will attend in the fall.


Our 2019-2020 yearbooks are scheduled to arrive at Vogel on June 2nd. We will be setting up a distribution dates and times once we get a guarantee on delivery. As soon as everything is finalized, PTO will reach our to the families with details. If you have questions or concerns, please email Kristie Sturgeon at vogelpto@gmail.com.

Counselor Corner

Getting adjusted to changes can be hard. Often times we find ourselves listening to the concerns that build up in our minds along with the world and all the "What IF's" that come from media lines. In this time we start to put labels upon ourselves that can become roadblocks to our success. Our community has been through some tough times. What gets us through these tough times is our faith in what we can be and our ability to use that momentum to build ourselves up. We have the potential to come out of this adjustment as greater and more wiser individuals. It will be a challenge! Challenges have the potential to push us to a position of digging down deeper to find out that we are truly built to last!

Our kids can learn so much from our response as parents, care takers and educators. Take this time to create new labels for each individual in your family. These labels should be filled with hope, possibility and understanding. Hope of what is to come and the hope that we will continue to finish the year strong. Keep growing and keep investing your time into growing as individuals, as a family and as a community.

Please continue to use our resource links below. Here is a link to this weeks lesson encouraging you to rip off labels that cause us to be held back.

WHY TRY? - Tearing Off Labels

A Letter from the Irons' Counselors

Incoming 7th Grade Parents:

We are currently in the stages of beginning to work on our master schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to the nature of our current situation, we will not be sending home a paper copy of your child’s course requests. All student course requests were rolled over into our scheduling program prior to spring break. The current classes that you can view in Parent Access/Student Access were reviewed individually with all students prior to spring break with a Irons staff member. This includes all incoming 7th and 8th graders. If you have requested a change since that time, your student’s assigned counselor has made the change in our scheduling program. Our email correspondence is your verification the change was made. This will continue to be our process.

The deadline for course changes was May 4, 2020. The deadline to apply online for Off-Campus P. E. was May 1, 2020.

A special note to those students who may receive special services through an IEP: Some special courses may not currently be shown in the Parent Access/Student Access Center. We have received that information from our feeder campuses and made those changes as indicated in our scheduling program. You will not be able to see those in PAC/SAC. 2020-21
