Spring Hill Intermediate Newsletter
A message from Ms. Robertson
It's finally September. Summer is a distant memory, school is in full swing, and for us here at Spring Hill Intermediate, it is time to get down to business. Our staff here at Spring Hill Intermediate have really done a lot of preparation for this year and we could not be more excited about what is in store for your kids! In order for your child to get the most out of their experience here, they need to have good attendance. Our campus has a contest each 9 weeks for best attendance. The class in each grade level with the best attendance for the 9 weeks will earn a Sonic ice cream and each student will receive a token to purchase a book from our new Book Vending Machine! Please make sure that all of your child's belongings are labeled with their name (lunchbox, backpack, sweaters or jackets, etc.). Students should be reading their library books and practicing their math facts each night!

W.I.N. (What I need time)
One of our most important goals for our campus is to close achievement gaps, make sure that our students are performing on grade level and to provide challenging instruction . Part of our plan for academic success this year will include W.I.N. time. W.I.N. time is spent every day addressing each student's individual targeted instruction. Kudos to our teachers and staff for meeting each of our students' individual needs!

HB 114 Update: Important Changes In The Law Regarding Vaping, E-cigarettes
The 88th Texas Legislative session passed H.B. 114 and adds the following to the Texas Education Code:
...a student SHALL be removed from class and PLACED IN A DISCIPLINARY ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM... if the student: possess, uses, sells, gives, or delivers to another person an e-cigarette within 300 feet of school property...or while attending a school-sponsored or school related activity on or off school property.
With the passage of this new legislation the student code of conduct is updated to make vaping violations result in removal from campus and placement at a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP) on the first offense. The legislation also clarifies that vaping at school sponsored events off of campus, including district vehicles, will result in a DAEP placement.
Parents, please discuss with your child both the negative effects of using a vape or e-cigarette and the consequences of possessing a vape or e-cigarette on campus or campus sponsored events.
Parents can find anti-vaping resources at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.
