Spirit Wear

Tired of the same athleisure wear you wear every day? Is your wife tired of you wearing that same Weezer t-shirt every day, even though it has FINALLY reached peak comfort because you've had it for so long that the shirt is practically, but not quite, see through?

Get out of your one-step-above pajamas rut and get your Hough on. Spirit Wear orders are due by September 30th. You'll be the talk of every Zoom call with this year's gear.


Email Ali allisonlaumann@gmail.com or Katie ohmrswilson1@gmail.com with questions.

PTO Dues Are ... Um ... Due!

If you haven't paid your PTO dues for the 2020-2021 school year, there's no time like yesterday.

Dues are $15 per child and can be paid through Infinite Campus. These dues help make all the ways we support Hough happen. They also help pay for a yearbook for your child, a timeless keepsake of your child captured in Zoom window after Zoom window.

Contact Bethany Brady if you have any questions: bethany.m.brady@gmail.com

Room Parents Needed!

Room Parents, we still need your help! But what, we imagine you're asking, ARE the Room Parent roles this year?!

That's a great question. Maybe you'll go on a masked patrol to peek into your neighbor's windows to ensure kids are paying attention in "class." Maybe you'll design custom Zoom backgrounds for every child. Maybe you'll create a new PE Class focused on TikTok dances.

The virtual world is YOUR digital oyster. YOU get to write the playbook! Let your creativity and enthusiasm shine as you support our teachers and students through our e-learning adventure.

To volunteer, please email Abby Bellgrau with your student's name, grade and teacher: abigail.bellgrau@gmail.com

Message from Principal Mr. Ernst

We made it!

The first days of the 2020-2021 school year are under our belts, and I could not be more pleased to celebrate the successes. Both our supply pick up and Meet the Teacher were outstanding.

It was so wonderful getting the opportunity to meet everyone and see the excitement in students’ eyes as the new school year was upon us. In addition, we are off to a great start with our first week of instruction. As we work through the newness in our distance learning format, I have been so encouraged by everyone’s flexibility, hard work, and determination.

Finally, don’t forget that I am here for you! If there are questions or concerns that I can help to answer please don’t hesitate to reach out. I hope everyone continues to have a wonderful start to the school year!
