Note from Mrs. Craft
Happy Thursday! You might notice a new look for our Principal Message. We are in the process of transitioning programs. We are also trying to look for ways to make our message shorter, but we want to ensure that you have all the information that you need, so we are trying to find a happy medium. Thank you in advance for having patience with us as we make this transition.
We want to thank our PTO for an awesome Family Fun Night. The weather was beautiful, the popcorn was yummy, and the inflatables, DJ, and games were AWESOME! We appreciate everyone who was able to come out and enjoy this event provided by our PTO. We are so proud of our Hart students and families for their generosity of food and money last week for our service projects. We raised $ 1,815.06 for ACO. Congratulations to our first grade for raising the most money. They will have a popsicle party in the near future.
As a reminder, we will not have school on Monday, November 7th and Tuesday, November 8th. This will be an opportunity for teachers and staff to learn and grow together. We hope you enjoy your long weekend. We will kick off this long weekend tomorrow with Reading with the Leopards. This is definitely a highlight for our students and staff.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
All My Best,
My mission is to be a servant leader who works with students, parents, and staff to build a community that fosters relationships and learning where everyone THRIVES. Each day, I strive to make the choice to be great versus comfortable, because you can't be both!
Congratulations to our Heart of a Teacher & Heart of Support for October
Please join me in congratulating Ms. Arabie, our Music teacher, for being the recipient of the Heart of a Teacher for the month of October. Ms. Arabie shares her love of music with our students daily by building strong relationships, building interactive lessons, and encouraging students to take a risk and try something new. She also wrote our school song this year, and she coordinated our Talent Show.
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Rose, our Instructional Aide, for Heart of Support for the month of October. Mrs. Rose is a team player, she builds fantastic relationships with our students and staff, and she also serves on our PTO. We appreciate the many hats that she wears throughout the day.
Congratulations to Mrs. Moody and Mrs. Mills!
Congratulations to Mrs. Mills, 4th Grade Teacher and Mrs. Moody, 1st Grade Teacher. Both were surprised with a visit from varsity football players and given the award of "Lovejoy Football Teacher of the Week"! They will be provided with the VIP treatment at the game tonight. #Rollpards

Extended Day Leopard Academy
Card and Board Game Spring Session Enrollment is going on!
Card and Board Game Academy is an afternoon extended day opportunity for Children in third grade through 6. Children get to learn and play 10 new games that spark curiosity, promote critical thinking skills and foster collaboration. Enroll now!
It’s that time of year again to celebrate our amazing teachers and staff
with our Lovejoy Letter Writing Campaign! Many of you are familiar with
this beloved tradition, but for those of you who are not, it is the time of
year when current and past students and parents write appreciation
letters for each of our teachers and staff members across the district.
The letters do not have to be elaborate or lengthy. The goal is just for
people to write a note of thanks to show gratitude to their teachers, the
staff and administration in our district. It is an opportunity for us to
take the time to let each person who makes a difference for us
throughout the school day know how much we value them.
Please clearly label the envelope with the staff/teacher’s name and LLC
(Lovejoy Letter Campaign) and return the letter to the box located in the
designated area at your school no later than Friday November 11th.
The letter writing campaign has become such a meaningful tradition in our
district. We really appreciate your time and effort to help us tell our
teachers and staff thank you for all that they do!
Lovejoy ISD Children's Choir

Nurse Tami's Notes
- Vision and Hearing Screenings - Kindergarten and new to Hart students will be having screenings on 11/16/22 and 11/17/22. Please make sure your child has his/her corrective lenses or glasses on those days. If a student does not pass their vision or hearing screening, rescreens will be done 3 weeks after. If they still do not pass, emails will be sent to parents. If you don't receive an email, that means your student has passed his/her vision and hearing screening.
- Hi, Hart families! Please do not send your child to school if he/she has:
- Flu-like symptoms (fever and/or chills, headache, muscle pain or body aches, feeling tired or weak, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, vomiting, and diarrhea)
- A fever of 100.0 degrees or greater
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- An infection that requires antibiotics (i.e. strep throat, pink eye, etc.) unless they have been on antibiotics for a full 24 hours.
- If your child is sick and tests positive for anything, please send me an email to let me know. This helps me monitor our campus health. Thank you for helping me keep Hart healthy.
