Month: December 2018
Dear HSE Community,
Happy Holidays! As we come to the end of another highly successful year and semester, I wanted to personally to thank you for all your support. When I first arrived on campus seven months ago, I was thinking how much I love being at HSE. Now, I can confirm that I have one of the best jobs in the world.
Walt Disney once said, “You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.” This is certainly the case as a principal. The reality is that the learning experiences and projects that have taken place this semester could not have happened without a great deal of commitment and support from the staff, parents, and students.
I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, chaperoning, reading, organizing, donating, and doing everything you could to support our students—both at home and at school. Special thanks goes to our PTO who, as always, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience. We can`t be the #1 without you guys.
In some very exciting news, we are working behind the scenes on a very big project, “The HSE S.T.E.A.M. Lab” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). This new addition will contain a makerspace-like classroom to support collaborative ingenuity for all of our students. STEAMLab is only the temporary name. In the spirit of creativity, we will give students and staff the opportunity to submit and vote on the permanent name. More details coming soon!
Be sure to keep an eye on our social media outlets for all of these announcements and more. Facebook (facebook.com/hsehouston), Twitter (hpsexcellence), and the Tiger Tribune sent to your emails every week.
One of the highlights of the holiday season is the extra time we have to spend time with our loved ones and celebrate the meaning of family and friends. I wish all of you a peaceful holiday, not only now but throughout the year.
See y`all on January 8th.
