HSE TIGER TRIBUNE
Week of Feb. 6th
STAFF IN THE SPOTLIGHT
MEET MS. ABRIL AGUIRRE
Hi HSE! I am Ms. Aguirre and I teach PLTW (STEM). This is my 2nd year teaching in Harmony and I am so thankful to be part of an amazing group of teachers. I am from South Texas and have received my bachelor's in Engineering from the University of Rochester, NY. I truly love teaching this engineering-related subject and watching the students develop an apt for designing, problem solving, and building in my class.
Hearing students tell me "I want to be an engineer when I grow up!" or "I want to become a computer scientist!" is exciting because it allows me to. I am also a coach to our award winning Drone Competitive Team! When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, my dog Bix, traveling, and exploring Houston's diverse sights.

Message from our Admin
Hello HSE Family,
For morning drop off, we're requiring all parents to stay in their car and follow morning drop off either in the front of the school or the North arrival area.
Please do not park in the campus area to walk your students. Parents are supposed to stay in their cars and drive to the drop-off areas so that students can get out of the cars.
For the safety of our students and yours, please do not park on Brook River Drive and walk your child across Gessner Road. Gessner Road is a very busy road with a set speed limit of 40 MPH. Also, DO NOT STOP AND DROP YOUR CHILD OFF GESSNER ROAD! Thank you for understanding!
We will keep the first U-Turn open when you come from Gessner Rd (It was closed today but it will not be closed again). Please do not use the second U-Turn and please do not cut in line.
We will have a police officer several days a week to reinforce these issues.
Have a good day!
NO STUDENT DROP-OFF IS ALLOWED BEFORE 7:00AM!
