Hallsville North Elementary

Creating an Environment Where Learning is Powerful!

A Note from Mrs. Parker

Wow! North Elementary has been rocking attendance this first nine weeks! Thank you for your help to get students to school on time and all day. As we head into the fall season we also know that students will start getting ill. Please remember to send in your child's doctor's note when they return. Make sure your child's first and last name are clearly written on the note.


Next week we have Western Day events. Please make sure that if you bring someone else with you that they bring their ID with them to get a badge made. A note has gone home for you to return to have preprinted badges made. Please have this note back to us by Wednesday so we can have badges printed and ready on Western Day. If you send the note back that Friday we can not guarantee the badge will get printed before your child's event as we will have lots of visitors on campus. The only badges we can print in advance are those that parents have had ID scanned. If you have not had ID scanned this year we may not be able to print your badge for you. Sometimes they roll over from last year and sometimes they do not. We just say it is best to bring your ID just in case.


We have now finished our beginning of year reading assessment on our students. You have either received or will receive a letter stating what level your child is reading on as of right now. It is our goal that all students make growth in their reading level. At parent conferences your child's teacher will be able to share specific feedback on where your child is reading at and what they are working with them on to help make progress to the next level.


Fall extracurricular activities have started and we know that lots of you are busy at night with practices, games, or events. We ask that you take a few minutes each night to listen to your child read. For students in grades K-2 books should be coming home nightly to read. These are books your child has been instructed on so they should be able to read them. Sometimes you will see students come home with the same book several nights. By rereading books students are able to work on their fluency. This is important as they grow as readers. We want our students to read fluently and not sound choppy as they read. Through practice they will become more fluent readers. Third grade students should come home with either a book they have been reading or a library book. Please take time to listen to your child read. Again, we know there are lots of things taking place at night, but this practice does make a difference with your child's progress.


Thank you parents for all that you do! We will continue working together to help your child grow this year.
