Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon Whispering Pines Panda Mommas,


Happy Mother's Day to all our mothers in our community. We see you working so hard supporting your children while many of you are holding down full time jobs. Or more than one job. We appreciate you. When you take our phone calls during your work day or call us back as soon as you can. We appreciate you. Thank you for taking the time to send supplies or birthday cupcakes or the many of things that we need your help for. We appreciate you. When you take a day off from work or responsibilities at home to volunteer for book fairs or lunch duty or field trips. We appreciate you. The family/school partnership is one of the most IMPORTANT partnerships to ensure success and grow the leaders we know we have in these children so I send you all a hearty thank you.



Thank you,

Wendy Anaya, Principal

Whispering Pines Elementary

CAMPUS UPDATES AND REMINDERS✍

Summer Camps at HHS

The coaches at Humble High School want to see all the future Wildcat athletes this summer at one of the many athletic camps that are available Check out the MANY options

HHS Summer Camps


CELL PHONES

As a reminder cell phones are not allowed to be used during the day. Once a student walks through the doors the phones must be turned off and put in their backpacks until we walk out of the door for dismissal. Students using their cell phone during the day will have it taken up and placed with the Assistant Principal or Principal for parents to come and pick up. This includes watches that have text and call ability. Thank you for your help.


DISMISSAL REMINDERS

Please remember that the front entrance is for Daycare and buses ONLY. We will redirect you to the car rider line. When parents come to pickup their "walker" in the front it clogs up the area and the buses and daycares can not get through.


TARDIES AND ABSENCES

We have many children continuing to arrive after the tardy bell and are missing instruction. Please bring your children to school by 7:45 am if you want them to eat breakfast and leave them the entire day so we can insure they are receiving instruction in all content areas. When they arrive at 8:30 they have missed a lesson. Thank you!


BREAKFAST IN THE CLASSROOM

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get your child to school by 7:45 if you would like them to eat breakfast! We are serving all children breakfast this year. If you want your child to eat at school please get them here by 7:45am so they have time to eat their breakfast before we start class at 8:00. We have many students coming right at 8:00 and then wanting to eat breakfast. We don't want them to miss instruction time.


DONATIONS TO THE PANDA MART

Our children all love the Panda Mart! Panda Bucks are like gold and they earn them through great behavior and great work and showing Panda Pride. However we could use your help. We can't pay for these items through Title 1 funds so we rely on our teachers and families to make donations. Please check out the link to the Amazon Wish List for items you can donate to the Panda Mart. COME ON....HELP A PANDA OUT!
