March 2018 Newsletter
College Hills Elem. PTO
A Message from Mr. Hatfield
Dear College Hills Parents & Guardians,
Springtime is at our door steps, where has the time gone? We wish everyone an amazing Spring Break on the 12th-16th. We have been very busy in the classroom learning many skills to build our schema. We have also started a media internship with our fourth grade students last semester and you can check out their post on our Twitter account with a variety of school activities for you to see all the great learning in the classrooms. Don't forget that class pictures are this Wednesday March 7th. Students will want to plan what to wear for their pictures.
As a Title I campus our School report Card is posted on our website under the parent tab or you can click here to view College Hills 2016-2017 report card.
I wanted to take a moment to talk about school safety and security at College Hills. We know this has been on everyone's minds and safety of all our students is priority for all our children. When visitors come into our building they must go through the vestibule to the office as the doors to the campus are locked during the school day. We do require everyone who comes on campus to check in with official ID to be scanned through our Hall Pass system before heading to their location. We have a safety team with walkies to help in the day to day activities as well. We also have College Station police who stop by to be familiar with our campus, staff and students. We encourage anyone who sees a concern to say something which can be done in person, by phone or email. My number one priority is school safety.
Thank you for the opportunity to educate your children and be apart of their lives!
