Principal's Weekly Message
April 8th, 2016
Week in Review
Yesterday we had a tragic accident occur at Eisenhower Middle School as a student was headed to school. With our updated drop off and pick up procedures, Hidden Forest students are dropped off and picked up on campus and do not generally cross any traffic in any area. However, for those students who walk, ride bikes, or travel around the neighborhood at any time, safety is very important. Below is a link with information that NEISD has shared with us regarding safety. Please review this with your children to help them be more aware so that we can avoid injuries. And, again, thank you for your patience this year as we have worked to provide a safer drop off and pick up for our students.

April Service Project - Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Fundraiser
We are super excited to be teaming up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for our April service project! We will be doing the “Pasta for Pennies” program and will be collecting all month long! I know you all have been very generous with our past service projects and we are truly grateful. We want to ask you one last time this year to support our cause. Each child came home last week with a parent letter about the fundraiser and each child will be coming home with a fundraiser box today in which they can collect coins, dollars, and checks. They should bring in the box each week to their teacher so it can be added to their class total. Each teacher will have an LLS fundraising webpage in which you can also donate! You can also set up a page for your child. Please click here to set up a page or donate to your class.
1st place (Top Fundraising Class)-Field Trip to Olive Garden (tour of the kitchen and pasta party)
2nd place-Silly String War on May 6th (any student that gets $150 online will also participate)

Home Connection: Institute a “15-minute program” where everyone drops what they are doing and pitches in to work as a team to clean the kitchen, pull weeds in the garden, wash the dishes, sweep the front porch, etc. Cutting out a small block of time where everyone helps makes the work go quicker is a way demonstrate how “many hands make light work.” (quote-John Heywood)
