Please Help Get Our Students To Class On Time!

Just a reminder that class starts at 7:55!! Breakfast is served until 8:00.


Please help us maximize your child's instructional time. Being even 10 minutes late daily adds up to an instructional loss of 50 minutes weekly and 200 minutes monthly! Every minute counts!


Thank you for your support!!

Listed below are the items HAAM has requested to help fulfill meals for Thanksgiving. We have assigned grade levels certain items so we can ensure we are able to provide each of the food items.

A Note From The Nurse

Good afternoon parents,

Flu season is among us! It's not too late to receive your flu vaccines! Contact your child's pediatrician with questions!


In an effort to avoid students coming to the clinic as soon as they walk into school, please read and understand the following reasons to keep your child home.

  • A temperature of 100 degrees or more in the last 24 hours (please report flu-like symptoms, confirmed flu or strep)
  • Vomited the night before or the morning of school
  • Diarrhea the night before or the morning of school
  • a persistent cough
  • a Continually runny nose with white, green or yellow mucus
  • Eyes that appear read and weeping with green or yellow discharge
  • a rash of unknown cause anywhere on the body

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT IS THE POLICY OF HUMBLE ISD THAT NO MEDICATION BE TRANSPORTED TO AND FROM SCHOOL BY A STUDENT. ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE CLINIC BY AN ADULT. I CANNOT ACCEPT MEDICATIONS OTHERWISE.


Thanks and stay warm :)

For Those Early Bird Planners....The Ten Days of December...


'Twas 10 days before Winter Break and all through the school,

the dress code shall deviate a bit from the rule!


On December 9th, let's kick-off the season wearing holiday bling or comfy plaid, and imagine all the fun that will be had!


On December 10th, the holidays are here for you and for me. Wear your apparel that resembles a winter/holiday tree!


On December 11th, the best way to spread winter/holiday cheer is by singing loudly for all to hear… Come dressed and ready for your sELFie!


On December 12th, Put on your best winter/holiday hat, -Hip, Hip Hooray! Parade around on this festive day!


On December 13th, in honor of Rudolph and the other deer, wear antlers or animal print to show your cheer.


On December 16th, wear a top hat, buttons and a sprinkle of snow. Dress like Frosty and you will be good to go!


On December 17th, let's all dress the same to stroll down our winter/holiday lanes (halls). Wear your red and white clothes to look like candy canes!


On December 18th, to help the Grinch's small heart to grow 3 sizes today, wear green to honor him in your own special way.


On December 19th, happy feet (slippers) and happy seats (PJs), this is how we should meet.


On December 20th you’ve never looked better… especially since you will be wearing your “wackiest” winter/holiday sweater!


Get ready for some fun….

Follow the daily themes of this annual SWE tradition!
