Bark-District issued Account Monitoring

Families will receive an initial invitation to create an account for the Bark for Schools Family Alerts Dashboard via email between Feb.3- Feb. 28, 2020.


Keeping students safe on district-issued accounts and devices continues to be of

paramount importance to Klein ISD. We heard from our families in the recent back-

to-school annual Family Survey that our families would like to be able to see what is

happening on their children’s district-issued Google Drive and Gmail accounts. In

response to that request, Klein ISD is providing Bark for Schools.

Counselor's Corner

As we celebrate Counselor's Week(Febraruary 3rd-7th), let's take a moment to thank our counselors for the amazing work that they do on our campus. Our counselors embody the ideals of being relationship driven and making sure every kid enters with a promise & exits with a purpose. We appreciate you and all of the work that you do to support our students, staff, and campus. Thank you, counselors!

Course Selection Update!

During the month of January, students in all grade levels completed the

online course selection google form. Counselors visited 6th and 7th

grade students through their Social Studies classes to help students input

their requests into skyward and answer any questions they still had. We

will be sending home a verification of the courses your child selected for

the 2020-2021 school year after spring break. Students will have until

May 8th, 2020 to make changes. There will be an online add/drop form

available in schoology and on the website for students to be able to make

changes beginning on March 1st.


All 8th grade students have completed the online course selection google

form. February 4-6th, counselors will be visiting students through their

Science classes to help students input their requests into the 9th grade

year of students four year plan in skyward. During this time, they will

also be able to answer any questions students may have. On February

18th, Klein Oak counselors will be visiting with students during their

Social Studies classes to complete their four year plan and answer any

questions they may still have about the different pathways offered. We

understand that this can be very stressful for students, but we hope to

make the process as easy as possible. Please be sure to check the four

year plan and pathways folder in schoology for information on all of the

options.

Destination Imagination

Hofius has two DI teams who will represent us at the Regional Destination Imagination competition on Saturday, February 22nd at Klein Cain High School. This year's teams are competing in the Scientific Challenge: First Encounters and Service Challenge: It's About Time. The Science Team members are Seventh Graders Chloe Hanes, Will Holland, Emma Knight and Sixth Graders Aiden Algaze, Isaak Matovich, Alayna Sylvester, Celeste Vultaggio. The Service Team members are Seventh Graders Maria Alvarez, Julie Russell and Sixth Graders Idil Arslan, Leah Colon, Serena Foley, Daniel Tang, Lucy Wahlquist. Each team has been working on their solution to the team challenge since September and anyone is welcome to join us at Klein Cain to support and cheer them on! The teams also compete that day in an Instant Challenge where their problem-solving skills are tested as they encounter a challenge they have never before seen. Both team managers, Dawn Baumel for Science and Stephanie Zimmerman for Service, are excited for the teams to compete and have greatly enjoyed working with these HAWKsome students!
