A Message from the Principal 

        I would like to issue a warm welcome to all who enter Hardin Houston Elementary! It is exciting to begin the 2017-18 school year. As always, some things change, but this is a stabilization period in education, so mostly, the building will run as it did last year.

        The changes that will occur this year are as follows. In recognition that our students are over-assessed, the legislators voted to reduce testing somewhat. They eliminated the 4th and 6th grade social studies state tests. Additionally, they eliminated the requirement that 1st and 2nd graders must have a state diagnostic test in writing and math. We will continue to benchmark our students in math at all grade levels because we recognize that the data provides us with good instructional information. We are switching from STAR to NWEA MAP because the company provides a science component, and we recognize the importance of science for many students’ futures. These are very similar programs, so the students should not really notice much difference. We will also have some new faces in the building. Mrs. Misty Gibson will serve as the school secretary and we have 3 new instructional aides: Mrs. Sara Mowery, Mrs. Nicole Hartings, and Mrs. Stephanie Duncum. These ladies will all make a positive impact on the students, and I hope you will join us in welcoming them. The third major change is the addition of a 4th special. Mrs. Carie New will be teaching technology to our students. She has been working hard to create a curriculum to meet the needs of our students, meet the standards, and help prepare our students for the growing use of technology. Instead of an A, B, C schedule, students will now be on an A, B, C, D schedule and attend each special every fourth day. The schedule is on the menu magnet as it has been in recent years. We are excited about the addition of this course and the impact it can have.

         Our staff wants to develop a partnership with parents and guardians in order to meet student needs. Always feel free to contact us with questions or concerns. We look forward to a great year!
