Summer Update
July 12, 2021
Dear Hart Families,

I hope this finds you enjoying a much-deserved, wonderful, and safe summer break! My family and I just returned last week from spending a week at Del Ray Beach in Florida. This was a great time to rest, relax, recharge, and make awesome memories with my family. This is exactly what I needed to get ready for us to begin the '21-'22 school year.

Please see below for a request to RSVP for our upcoming Parents' Night In event, volunteer opportunities, Kindergarten Screening information, and an opportunity for new families to tour Hart.

In an upcoming communication, I am looking forward to introducing our grade-level teams to everyone. With our Hart team members, our new team members joining us from Lovejoy and Puster, and our new LISD recruits, we are building an incredible team that is determined to provide the very best experience for your child.

All My Best,
Wendy Craft

My mission is to be a servant leader who works with students, parents, and staff to build a community that fosters relationships and learning where everyone THRIVES. Each day, I strive to make the choice to be great versus comfortable, because you can't be both!

New to Hart? Let's Get Together!
We are going to have many new families at Hart this year! Whether you are a family joining us from Lovejoy Elementary or new to Lovejoy ISD, I'd love to offer you and your family the opportunity to meet with me, our counselor Mary Ruggeri, our assistant principal Megan Rawlins, and/or our LMS Kristin Dawson to tour the building, ask questions and begin feeling at home at Hart.

We will be hosting small group tours the week of August 2-6. Please take a moment to sign up. If these times do not work with your schedule, please reach out to me at so that we can find a time that works for you.

See you soon!
Kindergarten Screening - Monday, August 2nd

We are excited for our Kindergarten class to join us this year. In order for us to create the best class lists, we like to perform a Kindergarten screening prior to school beginning. This year, our kindergarten screening will take place on Monday, August 2nd. Please click below to sign your child up. Please know that your child does not need to do anything to prepare for this screening. It is a baseline so we can see your child's strengths. If you are out of town, please don't worry, we will complete the screener the first week of school. If your child is a Lovejoy Scholar, then you do NOT need to sign your child up since this has already been completed as part of the application process. If you have any questions, please contact Marie Cloud at
Please note these are parent-organized events that are not affiliated with the district. Fun times ahead!
