We are really focused this month on the character trait of honesty. Feel free to talk to your kids about the importance of honesty when it comes to trust and healthy relationships. 

Also, I wanted to remind you that there is no school on Monday due to President’s Day.

Fifth grade parents, it is time to start talking to your kids about middle school.  In the coming weeks, Houck will be attempting to plan for next year by looking at the abilities and skills of students. This is so they can plan to have enough of the right classes scheduled with staff who are properly qualified.  You can start preparing your child by talking to them about the schedule, keeping a locker, and staying organized.  You may want to watch for events at Houck so you can attend and begin to familiarize yourselves with the building.  By working together, we can diminish the occasional anxiety that goes with going to middle school.
