Hawk Talk

November 1st-5th

A Message from the Principal

Hobby Family,


I am extremely proud of the work we are doing at Hobby MS. We had a 99% completion rate of the online STAAR Interim Assessment with quality tier one instruction going on in every classroom. We started this week with an amazing Red Ribbon Week and a Pep Rally which featured former Hawks from Clark HS coming down to visit. I would like to add that our choir, dance, and Associate Principal stole the show! We also hosted the Book Fair, an Orchestra Concert, a Band Concert, the Special Olympics preliminaries, in addition to Football and Volleyball games. Our week ended with an amazing Friday filled with learning, having both students and staff dressing like characters. Unlike most schools in our district who are just trying to survive, Hobby MS is truly thriving! We were even asked at the last minute to host the Volleyball tournament because the other middle school felt they could not handle the challenge.


Our 7th grade undefeated football team will be participating in the first ever NISD middle school playoffs Wednesday November 3, 7PM at Gustafson Stadium.


None of these accomplishments would be possible without you, the most amazing community. I have said it before and I will say it again, You Matter!


Have a safe and restful weekend.



Praise, Promote & Protect.

As always, You Matter!


Lawrence Carranco
