Principal Message


We hope that you had a wonderful week with your families! I've loved time with my family, and I sure look forward to returning to all of our THE Students too. It will be an exciting time to hear how they all Sharpened their Saw over the week.

We are starting the 4th Nine Weeks Grading Period this week. The end of the year will be here before we realize it. Take time to check in with your child and your child's teacher to see how they are progressing on their goals. We sure have some hard working staff and students.

Have a great week! We look forward to the week with your children.

Thank you,

Tara Bailey

On Another Note

With warmer temperatures, head lice can become more prevalent. Lice can be transmitted by direct contact with someone who has lice. Avoiding exposure is the best way to prevent getting lice. Avoid head to head contact, do not share combs, brushes, hats, caps, hair ribbons, coats, or towels.

In an effort to control any lice outbreaks at T.H.E.,

  • Treat your student with appropriate topical medicine only if you see live lice. (Contact the school clinic, your doctor, or pharmacist for questions).

  • Thoroughly comb the hair with a fine tooth comb after treating it to remove as many nits (eggs) as possible.

  • Discuss with your student how head lice is spread and discourage them from sharing personal items with others.

Prompt and proper treatment of lice will help prevent the spread of, and exposure to, all who come to or attend T.H.E. Campus. Anyone can get head lice.

Thank you for your support! Please call the school clinic if you have any concerns or questions about your student’s health and wellness! (210-407-8221 or 210-407-8203).

Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found

Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to the NEISD Clothes Closet at the end of the semester.

5th grade students – 5th grade spirit is popping up all over cam-pus. Don’t forget to show off your 5th grade spirit shirt on WILD Wednesday!
