Folks, hope to see you at the PTA meeting. We’ll have a group of the 8th graders presenting their community projects, and 4th & 5th graders singing and performing with bells.
Below is a link to the presentation Mr. Bennett gave at the PTA meeting on the trip planned by the PTA Travel Committee for our Spanish language middle school students. The trip will give students and parent volunteers an opportunity to experience the culture, see some wonderful sites, and contribute to some of the communities.
Abajo hay un enlace a la presentación que el Sr. Bennett hizo en la reunión de la PTA sobre el viaje planeado por el Comité de Viajes de la PTA para nuestros estudiantes de español de escuela intermedia. El viaje les dará a los estudiantes y padres voluntarios la oportunidad de experimentar la cultura, ver algunos sitios maravillosos y contribuir con algunas de las comunidades.
The first PTA meeting of the new year is this this Thursday evening @ 6:00 PM.
T-Shirts and other goodies: The PTA will have the new school spirit shirts (student and family versions) on hand for purchase, as well as yard signs and stickers. Student shirts are available from XS (pre-K/K size) through Adult Large. An order form will also be given to the kids to bring home at some point soon.
Events updates: We’ll have updates on event dates, including Daddy-Daughter Dance, new dates for Family Fun Night, and more. We have a new Movies with Mommy event coming, and a dream flag writing event which has opportunities for public display.
PTA Travel Committee: There will be a presentation by the Travel Committee on plans for foreign language trips.
And more! We hope to see you there!

This week at our PTA meeting, we had a presentation by the Travel Committee, working to coordinate foreign trips for our MYP (6-8) students. We want the presentation to get out to a wider audience, and are making it available on the PTA website.
School administration has brought to our attention a gap we have in officially getting students enrolled. Dallas ISD wants students explicitly enrolled in their system. See instructions the link below for online registration. Hint: It involves Power School.
For parents attending the Montessori Parent Night tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/26), your teachers have your student codes, and there will be a number of computers available so you can take care of it there.
For parents of 6-8 graders, student codes were handed out to the students today.
Please join us this Thursday @ 6:00 PM for the first PTA meeting of 2018-19.
In a great note for the start of the school year, Harry Stone’s elementary and middle grades both received high marks on the TEA report cards. Elementary received a 94 out of 100 overall, and the middle grades received a 92.
This overall grade is a combination of 3 scores in different areas. For more information (and reports for other schools), visit the TEA report cards site linked below.
Harry Stone’s Open House for the start of the 2018-19 school year is tomorrow night, Thursday, from 5-8 PM.
Come by and meet your teachers, and of course, join the PTA!
