Red Ribbon Week

Next week is Red Ribbon Week at Lovett! Red Ribbon Week is recognized across the country in a variety of ways. This year we wanted to focus our Red Ribbon Week Activities on making healthy choices in many aspects of their life. Keep an eye out today for communication on Red Ribbon Week in your child's folder. Below I have also included for you a link to the Red Ribbon Campaign page if you'd like to learn more about the origins of Red Ribbon Week.

Halloween Costumes at School

Halloween as we all know is Thursday, October 31st and I am sure many of your children have already picked out their costumes. You will note on the Red Ribbon Week communication that we do allow students to wear costumes on Halloween. Please note that classes do not host classroom parties on this day. Even with costumes we try and keep a normal day of learning. Please follow the guidelines below when selecting costumes for school:

1. Students should not wear mask covering their faces. Some face paint is fine, but we should be able to clearly recognize your child during the day.

2. Weapon like props (toy swords, toy guns, spikes lug nuts, etc.) should not be a part of the costume.

3. We recommend costumes focused on storybook characters, children movie characters, superheroes, etc. Avoid gory costumes.

4. Children must be able to go through their normal school day in their costumes and costumes should not be so cumbersome that they cannot sit in their desk or on carpet or function at recess.

5. Costumes with negative language or messages should not be worn.

Thanks in advance for helping us to make it a safe and fun day for all.

MyOn by Renaissance Reading Challenge!

All HISD Students have access to myON, a personalized literacy environment that is designed to help them learn and love reading. Every month campuses are awarded a traveling trophy for the number of books students read on myON and with the amazing learners we have here at Lovett, there is no reason that that trophy should not be in our main office. I am challenging all parents to get their students logged on to myON and encourage a love for reading. Below is the link to the HISD hub where you can log onto myON using your student's student identification number and their birthdate as the password. Let's get reading!!
