Hawk Talk

January 31st - February 4th

A Message from the Principal

Hobby Family,

In times when other schools are struggling with dropping student attendance rates and a lack of substitutes, Hobby Middle School has a 98% fill rate with substitute teachers and an average of 90% student attendance. When other schools are just trying to get back to normal we are taking field trips.

We have also started moving into our new Science Labs to better serve our students. All of this is possible because of the amazing families at Hobby Middle School.

February is “ I Heart” Learning month at Hobby Middle School, and we will kick it off with a “Chipotle Night” from 4 - 8 PM at Chipotle Mexican Grill in Huebner Oaks. Come out and see us.

As always, You Matter!

Praise, Promote & Protect.

Lawrence Carranco
