Hornets News Corner!

Happy Wednesday to my Dynamic HIAT Families,


I wanted to first tell you how proud I am of my scholars for how wonderful they have been during virtual learning. I have observed them in class, and they have performed nothing short of amazing!

Next, I would like to thank my parents for how wonderful everyone has been with adjusting to our new normal! YOU GUYS ROCK!


This Month we have a few items that I will discuss below! Please read and feel free to email or call if you have any questions!


Kind Regards,

Principal Kemp

Kickboard

What is Kickboard?

Kickboard provides professional services for districts, leaders, and teachers to ensure success with culture initiatives. HIAT uses this system to help incentive positive behaviors for scholars. This is a way for you as the parent, to keep track of your scholars daily behavior activities while in class and on Virtual.


Starting September 14th, all teachers will be implementing Kickboard for all scholars. We will send out Family codes by this Friday for all parents to have access to this portal. Below is a PowerPoint about how Kickboard is being used at HIAT. Please watch it!
