Spring Hill Intermediate Newsletter
A message from Ms. Robertson
As we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful, we want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you: We are thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn - they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here. We are thankful for the support of the parents who create an outstanding partnership for our students. We are thankful for our teachers, assistants, nurses, bus drivers, secretaries, lunchroom ladies, support staff, therapists, maintenance, and administrators who really care about student achievement and have the best interests of our students at heart. We are also thankful for our volunteers who contribute so much to our school.
The world we live in can be difficult and challenging at times. We see dedicated and tireless individuals going above and beyond to make sure that great things happen in our school. They do make a difference for the students here at Spring Hill Intermediate!
Most importantly, we are thankful for the parents and families that keep faith in us. They continue to share their most valuable possession with us. We appreciate all that you do to partner in your child's education, safety and well-being. For these things, we are ever so thankful.
I would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving Season.

Roxy Room Project
The Roxy Room at Spring Hill Intermediate was a donation from The Roxy Room Project, a non-profit organization. The Roxy Room is a sensory room with special lighting, colors, sounds, and objects. The soothing items in the room are designed to give students a variety of sensory inputs, helping them calm and focus themselves so they are better prepared for learning. We were excited to learn that we received the grant for the Roxy Room Project!

W.I.N. (What I need time)
One of our most important goals for our campus is to close achievement gaps, make sure that our students are performing on grade level and to provide challenging instruction . Part of our plan for academic success this year will include W.I.N. time. W.I.N. time is spent every day addressing each student's individual targeted instruction. Kudos to our teachers and staff for meeting each of our students' individual needs!
Check out Skyward to answer the following questions!
1. How can I check on my child's attendance?
2. How can I see if my child is missing any assignments?
3. How can I get notifications when my child's grades falls below a certain point?

HB 114 Update: Important Changes In The Law Regarding Vaping, E-cigarettes
The 88th Texas Legislative session passed H.B. 114 and adds the following to the Texas Education Code:
...a student SHALL be removed from class and PLACED IN A DISCIPLINARY ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM... if the student: possess, uses, sells, gives, or delivers to another person an e-cigarette within 300 feet of school property...or while attending a school-sponsored or school related activity on or off school property.
With the passage of this new legislation the student code of conduct is updated to make vaping violations result in removal from campus and placement at a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP) on the first offense. The legislation also clarifies that vaping at school sponsored events off of campus, including district vehicles, will result in a DAEP placement.
Parents, please discuss with your child both the negative effects of using a vape or e-cigarette and the consequences of possessing a vape or e-cigarette on campus or campus sponsored events.
Parents can find anti-vaping resources at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.
