Hispanic Heritage Month

As we are a diverse campus, we will be highlighting various cultures throughout the year.

National Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated from September 15 to October 15, honors Latinos who have greatly contributed, influenced, and enriched our culture and society. It is a great opportunity to teach children about the history and traditions of Latino culture.

In honor of this month, we are asking families of Hispanic descent to share a family photo to display in our school. Please include the family name and which country your family represents. We will be collecting photos until September 30, 2022. You could e-mail your photos to igrau@humbleisd.net

Important Information from the Nurse

* It is always a great idea for ALL students to have a complete change of clothing in their backpacks--Especially Kinder, 1st, and 2nd. Clothes are not just for restroom accidents: spilled food-ketchup, milk, syrup are the most frequent offenders; MUD, lots of mud; paint; cuts, tears, and rips; uncomfortable

* All medications MUST be brought to the clinic by an adult. This includes inhalers and Epipens.

* It has been brought to our attention that some cell phones register the clinic number as SCAM LIKELY. Please program 281-641-5005 as the School Nurse so you will know when we are calling you for your child.

* We will start screening our Grizzlies vision and hearing this month. Please make sure your student is wearing or bringing prescription glasses to school daily.

Thank you!!
