Cardinal Courier: Sept. 25th

Where Learning Takes Flight

A Note from Mrs. Tallent

Hi Fall Creek Families,

Mr. Griffin and I had a great time getting slimed yesterday! We can not thank you enough for helping us raise $40,567 for interactive smart boards! In our wrap up meeting with Boosterthon, they shared that we have an additional $8,500 in eligible corporate matching gifts that could still be collected. As soon as they share the information with me, I will send an email to those individuals to make sure they have the information they need to get their corporate match. We could order two additional smart boards if all those corporate matches come in! Please make sure you tell your family and friends THANK YOU! Non-Parent Donors made up 61% of the money we were able to raise. Mr. Griffin and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this amazing community!

Come Join Student Health Advisory Committee

Are you a parent of a current Humble ISD student? Are you interested in student health and wellness programming?

Humble ISD has 3 open parent positions on the Humble ISD SHAC.

SHAC is an advisory committee that provides guidance, recommendations and assistance to the Board of Trustees on a variety of issues relating to student health and wellness. SHAC meets at least 4 times a year. Membership is comprised of parents, community members, and district representatives who work with students and public health officials on promoting school health on topics ranging from nutrition to fitness to substance abuse prevention. Serving on this council provides an opportunity for all members to gain a greater understanding, awareness, and appreciation for current and prospective health and wellness programming throughout the district. To be eligible for one of the open parent spots on SHAC, you need to be the parent of a currently enrolled Humble ISD student and cannot be a current District employee.

If you would like to join SHAC, please email SHAC Facilitator Helen Wagner at
