 The Parkwood Prospect

Good morning Parkwood Hill family,

The week ahead is relatively quiet, and our attention is focused on student progress.  I visited multiple classrooms last week, and I'm thrilled to see what our students and teachers are accomplishing.  So many of our classrooms are busy, engaging places where students are actively thinking, debating, laughing, finding solutions, and creating together.  Thank you for encouraging your child to come to school rested and ready to learn each day.  There is a lot of important learning ahead, and every day counts.

In the sections below, please note a few important updates – namely that our 5th grade Band Instrument Fair times have been adjusted to 12:00-4:30 p.m. on February 10, and that sign-ups for the Gaming Club are now closed.  Please also note that this is the last week to order a PHIS Yearbook for $23 online, and be sure to check out the parent workshops offered in the "Get Involved" section below.

Enjoy the remainder of this warm weekend, and as always, have a great week ahead!

Giving you my "Bulldog Best, Never Less,"

Brad Tyler, Principal

KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE

"Keep Flu out of School" – According to the Centers for Disease Control, the best preventative measure against influenza (flu) is an annual flu shot; however, hand hygiene is also important.  Please encourage your bulldog to wash his hands regularly and thoroughly to reduce the likelihood of flu transmission.  If your child has a fever, or is diagnosed with flu, please keep him home until cleared to return to school.  For more information regarding the flu, click here.

Required Spring Immunizations for 6th Graders – According to Texas state law, students entering 7th grade are required to have the following immunizations:  Tdap booster, Meningitis vaccination, and a second vaccination for Varicella.  Preliminary schedules for 7th grade will not be given to students whose immunizations are not in compliance, and the deadline is April 20, 2018.  Updated immunization records can be delivered to our PHIS front office, or faxed to our campus nurse at (817) 744-4038.  If you have questions, please email stacy.roquemore@kellerisd.net.

SPECIAL CLUB NEWS
