Tex Hill needs your help

Part of what makes our school a wonderful place to be is that all of our students feel safe while they are here. In order to ensure our students’ safety, I ask that no one park along the fire lane marked by the red stripe on the curb in front of our beautiful building as that is a violation of the fire safety policy. Instead, please park in a parking spot in the lot to ensure your safety as well as the safety of our students. I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

News from the Nurse

Reminders:

1. Students are not allowed to carry any medication with them while at school for any reason. This includes over the counter and prescribed medication. Parents must walk in any medication required for students. If a student is in possession of medication on campus they may be issued a severe disciplinary consequence. We want to ensure the safety of all students.


2. If a student is required to use crutches while on campus, a doctor's note must be provided to the nurse, so the proper plan can be put in place for that student.


3. Students must be fever free for 24 hours without medication before they are permitted to return to school. This is for the safety and well being of all of our students.

Community News

Ian's Cup Soccer:


Ian's Foundation was created in the memory of Ian Fincke. Ian tragically passed away at the age of 16, in October of 2008 as the result of fatal wounds sustained during a skateboarding accident. Ian was a previous student at Hardy Oak Elementary, Barbara Bush Middle School and both Reagan and Johnson High Schools. The foundation was formed to advance the safety and welfare of San Antonio youth through education and scholarship awards. To date over $29,000 in scholarships has been awarded. Ian's Foundation also promotes helmet safety in the San Antonio and surrounding area and supports STRAPS (South Texas Regional and Paralympic Sports). STRAPS was inspired by Ian's Foundation as a way to allow anyone in San Antonio with physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the game of soccer. You can read more about the foundation at www.IansFoundation.org.

Ian’s Foundation will be offering an annual spring soccer clinic for the San Antonio youth as one of their major fundraisers for the Ian's Cup scholarship fund (formerly known as The Fincke Cup). The clinic will be held on Sunday, February 28th at the Mays YMCA from 2-4PM (with registration from 1:30-2:00). The cost of the clinic is $30 if pre-registered and $35 the day of the clinic. It will include a 2hr clinic as well as a 2016 Ian's Cup t-shirt (while supplies last). The deadline for t-shirt pre-orders and pre-registration for the soccer clinic to ensure a 2016 Ian's Cup t-shirt is Monday, February 15th but pre-registration for the clinic will remain open through Saturday, February 27th at 6PM. Trainers will include local high school coaches, club trainers and high school soccer players from Johnson and Reagan, as they must volunteer at one of the foundation's community service events to be eligible for a scholarship.
