LHE...Where Growth Happens
Happenings at The Hill
Building a Culture of Literacy
Reading and writing are constant parts of our days at LHE. Teaching our students to comprehend complex text, think critically about what they read and apply the information is one of the most crucial things we do.
To build a true culture of literacy we need our parents and community to support us in this journey. Thank you to Education Connection, our volunteers, PALS, NJHS Reading Buddies, Liberty Hill Police Officers and all others that come to LHE to read to our students.
On November 4th, we will begin our One School, One Book program to continue building our community of readers. “When a whole school reads a book, there’s a lot to talk about.” More information and the book “The World According to Humphrey” by Betty G. Birney will be coming home with your student soon.
If you would like to be part of a great reading program that supports our students, please consider joining “Education Connection.”For any questions contact Jamie Etzkorn at 512-800-6353 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safety Concern-Cell Phones
This sign is posted as you enter our back parking lot. Multiple teachers have reported that parents are on cell phones during arrival and dismissal. Our staff members are diligent about safety and we need all parents to be diligent as well. Cell phones are not to be used at all during dismissal (even when waiting). It is the law.
If you are a parent that drops off in our morning car rider line, please understand it is not safe to pull out of line and pass the parked cars. We have students that get out on both sides of the vehicle and other circumstances that result in students being in the passing lane. Our staff members work hard to prevent delays. If a delay happens, be patient and stay in line unless a staff member directs you to go around.
As you are pulling in the line, have your children be ready to exit your vehicle.
Attendance-Everyday in School Matters
Our Goal is 98%
A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn.
Attendance is the key for a child to be successful in their school careers.

Parents wishing to just view the parade may enter through the front doors and go to the gym to view the parade procession. These guests will then exit those same doors and not have access to the building. If you are volunteering for Fall Fest on that day, you should plan to show your ID at the front office to receive your visitor/volunteer badge.
*Have you checked your child’s lunch account lately? If you do not check this regularly please login to your child’s skyward account and check their current balance under “Food Service.”
*FYI...UIL Meet will be held on Tuesday Jan. 14th and Thursday Jan. 16th in Salado. Please be prepared and prepare our students and parents.
One School, One Book
Read to Them educates families and schools on the benefits and importance of reading aloud at home. A growing body of research describes the complex and permanent effects of reading aloud. Children who are read to learn to read more easily and become better readers. Literacy skills provide the basis for a lifetime of learning and productivity.
Our programs encourage and enable reading together at home by providing every school with tools, resources, guidance, and support.
Please look for more information to launch our One Book, The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney in November.
