A Message from Mrs. Haymark
Dear Vogel Texans Families,
We are quickly approaching the end of the first nine weeks of school! It's so hard to believe we have almost completed a fourth of the school year. Our students are getting into the swing of things and working extremely hard everyday. Our teachers are working diligently to support them and seeing them evolve is such a joy!
We are also extremely excited to welcome you back to campus! It has been amazing seeing parents eating lunch with students and helping out in the front office. We certainly appreciate your continued support. If you ever have questions or concerns, please contact us here are the school!
Christa Haymark, Principal

Fall Festival Night
Red Ribbon Week
The most frequently asked question we get at the beginning of the year is how can I help my child be successful in intermediate school. The transition to intermediate can be challenging for some kiddos. The best thing a parent can do to support their child is to help them build organizational systems. Some students have trouble juggling the increased number of teachers and assignments. Help your child get into the routine of checking for work inside their flexi-folder every night. Look at graded assignments that are sent home to see if there are concepts your child is struggling to master. And sign up for a Parent Access account to monitor your child's grades. If you see zeros or "Z"s in the gradebook, it means that your child has not turned in their assignment. Encourage them to complete the work and turn it in. It's never too late to turn work in or too early to start building good study habits. If you don't have a Parent Access account CLICK HERE to register. Your involvement in their education is important. If you have questions on how else you can support your child, please reach out to your child's teacher or one of our school counselors.
Car Rider Reminders
2. All parents/guardians picking up in the afternoon must have 22-23 Vogel car rider tag. If you don't have a car rider tag for pick-up, please be prepared to show your ID.
3. There is NO left or right turn into the school drive when traveling on Geffert Wright. All cars entering the drive must cross over Geffert Wright from car rider line across the street from the school. Cars coming from Hanna or Maplewood all access the car rider line near the transportation building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
Student Check-out and Dismissal
As a reminder, parents who elect to check students out of school must do so before 3:30 pm. The afternoon is a busy time preparing for dismissal. We want to ensure that all changes get to teachers in plenty of time to inform students. When checking students out, please remember to bring your state issued ID with you. We appreciate all your patience and understanding with this process.
Remember to please refrain from picking students up in front of the school on Geffert Wright Drive or at the semi-circle on the street in front of the bus ramp as this is a safety hazard. The entrance for the car rider line is across the street from Vogel at the Bus Barn.
Drop off procedures for forgotten items
Please help your student be fully prepared for their day by ensuring that they have all needed materials (backpack, lunch, water bottle, etc...) before leaving for school in the morning.
To minimize interruptions to classrooms, please limit drop-offs to the following items:
- Water bottles and lunches may be placed on the Drop-off table before 10:30 a.m. at the front office. These items should be labeled with your child’s name and homebase teacher's name to ensure proper delivery. Students are encouraged to check the drop off table at the beginning of their lunch if they forgot it at home.
- If you need eye glasses delivered to your child, please do not put them on the drop-off table. Bring them to the office staff for immediate delivery to your child.
- Any class work or homework that is dropped off will be placed in the teacher’s mailbox to be picked up during the day.
Delivery of flowers, balloons, etc. to students at school are not permitted.
