Happy summer, all!  We have just a few short weeks until an exciting new school year begins.  We hope everyone has had a relaxing and fun summer so far.

Ms. Jones has asked us to let you know navy blue bottoms have been added to the middle school uniform.  Students are to wear light blue shirts and khaki or navy blue pants, shorts, or skirts (as appropriate).   Also, STAAR results will be coming soon to a mailbox near you.  And lastly, for students who will be transitioning to the next level (Kinder to 1st and 3rd to 4th), classroom assignments will also arrive shortly.

Students and teachers (and parents) will also be happy to learn ACP exams have been reduced in number.  A total of 19 ACP exams have been eliminated for elementary students.

Looking forward to seeing bright and happy faces in the upcoming year!

There will be a community meeting held on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at 6:00pm, at Harry Stone Montessori Academy. Topics to discuss are Montessori program, Montessori classroom and Montessori evaluation.

Please come and participate in the conversation! Call Dallas ISD Board Services (972) 925-3719 for more information.

The meeting is to speak to parents and teachers regarding concerns Dr Blackburn has received regarding Harry Stone’s Montessori program.

The concerns from parents include that the Montessori program is not being implemented with fidelity, and concerns from teachers include that the Montessori classrooms are not being evaluated effectively.

Dr Blackburn has asked that Harry Stone’s staff make presentations about these concerns, and he will take questions and comments afterwards.

We look forward to having you join Wednesday @ 6.

And Then They Came For Me:

Remembering the World of Anne Frank

This is a middle school production and the topic may not be appropriate for elementary aged children.
Tickets are $3.00 and concessions will be on sale before and after the play, as well as during intermission.
The support and money raised from ticket sales each year determines what shows we are able to do the following year. Please come and support us! Without the parents’ and students’ support we cannot do our large, full school shows.
Shows Under Consideration for 2016:
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
Annie (Junior)
1000 Cranes
