Awesome Band Trip

I had the privilege of traveling to the Houston area to attend The Space City Showcase of Music Festival contest with our amazing Tex Hill Band students. What a wonderful trip! Our students were well behaved and played beautifully. Their hard work and dedication to the program earned them a SUPERIOR rating by all three judges and "Overall Outstanding" Middle School Band for the entire contest! Thank you band members for making Tex Hill proud!!

Our 8th graders did a great job and looked terrific in their 8th grade panoramic picture today. These pictures will be available for purchase through May 13th. The students received an envelope to select the picture package they would like and then return to the main office. The cost is $25 for the large panoramic picture and $30 for the large panoramic and the picture with students standing inside a large 16 signifying their last year at Hill. Purchase is completely optional. Additional envelopes are available in the main office, if needed.

Next School Year

Dear Parent/Guardian:

As the end of the school year approaches, we are making plans for the 2016-17 school year. Please let us know by completing the form below if your child WILL NOT be returning to “Tex” Hill Middle School or attending 9th grade at Johnson High School.

Please complete the form only if you know that your child WILL NOT be returning and have him/her return it to the counseling office.

Thank you for your assistance.

All 6th grade parents should have received a letter in the mail stating which shots their child needs for next year. Shots are due by the first day of school, Aug.22, 2016.

If your student has already had the required shots, please send in a current immunization record or ask the dr. office to fax it to Tex Hill Atten: Nurse McVay at 210-494-2380. We would like to thank the parents that have already submitted the shot records for next school year.

UPDATED: 8th grade celebration

As recognition and congratulations to our 8th grade students our wonderful PTSA sponsors an 8th grade celebration every year. This year the 8th grade celebration will be held at the newly acquired NEISD sports park. This will be a fun event for students to relax, have fun with friends and play some games. Parent permission slips will go home on May 13th during 8th period and all permission slips must be returned to 8th period by Friday, May 20th. Students will not be permitted to attend if they do not have a signed parent permission slip.

Special Notice: This event is a reward for a great 8th grade year. If any 8th grader is assigned In School Suspension from April 13th through the end of the school year, they will not be able to attend and participate in this event.
