Principal's Weekly Message

Week in Review

The track has been completed! The contractor still has some sod to lay and they want to water it for a bit before opening the area to our students. Kids are rough on grass, so if we give it some time to take root it may do better. We will have a dedication on on February 12th before our Apex Fun Run.


Speaking of Apex Fun Run, we will be kicking off this big event soon. Your children will be given information at school about the Fun Run and will also be receiving some great character lessons along the way. We are looking forward to using our new track for this event, which is our major annual fundraiser in support of various school projects and our field trip fund.


Our 3rd and 4th grade students were treated to a visit from Mr. Atkinson, a meteorologist, who talked to them today about natural disasters. The topic was enthralling for the kids. We appreciate the time he took to spend time with our students.


There are various flyers about upcoming events at Hidden Forest and within NEISD. Have a wonderful three day weekend.

Interested in video games? Roosevelt High School is hosting a new event called, "Datacon," to which they are inviting all of the schools in the district. Hidden Forest has a team of 2 students who designed a video game for Datacon's design competition. We would love to have you come out to Roosevelt on January 23rd to support Hidden Forest. You will get to play lots of video games on that date, and have the opportunity to vote for Hidden Forest's very own game developers! Datacon is free, and should be fun for the whole family. For more information, contact Mrs. Eichholz at teichh@neisd.net.

Habit of the Week: Habit 3 ~ Put First Things First

Quote of the Week: “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” -Og Mandino


Home Connection: When asking your kiddos questions about their school day, they can sometimes give very vague responses. Think about how you can expand on the specifics of their day by incorporating some of the 7 Habits language into your questioning. You could ask how they were Proactive that day or how they saw someone else putting first things first. The following reflection is an opportunity for your family to discuss centered around Habit 3.

Sometimes not being brave gets in the way of doing things that are important to you. Putting First Things First might mean putting aside your fears to reach your goal. Has fear ever kept you from doing something great or important?
