Message from the Principal

Dear Hart Families,

Calling all future engineers who would like to help Hart create a Cangineering creation for the STEM festival. This is a fun competition and all canned food being used will be donated to the ACO! Check out the details here. If your child is interested in helping Hart create a winning entry, please complete this form

All students can help Hart prepare by bringing in can goods starting on Monday.  The can goods must have their original food label and not be expired. All can goods can be delivered to the Lair.  

We hope all of our families enjoy this long three day weekend!

With a Full HeArt, 
Lacey Moser

Attached you will find the link of the State of Texas 2018-19 School Report Card for Hart Elementary. This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. 

The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the enclosed "2018-19 School Report Card Definitions." The report for our school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school. 

State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.

 The School Report Cards can be found online at

 A more complete report about Hart Elementary, the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), is available by contacting my office or can be accessed online at  
  https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/index.html  

Please contact me if you have any questions concerning this report card. Thank you for your continued support of Hart Elementary.

Hart is desperately in need of a chess puzzles coach. Please contact Amy Scott, amy_scott@lovejoyisd.net if you are interested. 







Join us for Science Night

On January 29th, please join us for an adventure in science.   PTA  is sponsoring Science Night through the Perot Museum.  Perot will be bringing their Tech Truck to the  Hart  campus.  There will be fun experiments to observe and conduct.  It will be from 6-7:30pm in the  Hart  cafeteria. Children should be accompanied by an adult.





We are excited to announce our 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students will have the opportunity to participate in the UIL competition this year. Competitions will be held on March 30th for Spelling, Ready Writing and Creative Writing and April 3rd for the remaining events. The competition will be held at Hart Elementary. Forms were sent home on Thursday, January  9. If you did not receive a form, forms are available in the front office. Form is due no later than Wednesday, January 22. 











Bluebonnet Voting and Pancake Breakfast

3rd and 4th-grade students that have read 5 of the Bluebonnet Award Nominated books will receive an invitation next week to attend a Bluebonnet Pancake Breakfast celebration. The celebration will be held on Thursday, January 30th, from  7:30 a.m. - 7:50 a.m. Students will be voting for their favorite Bluebonnet books. 
Students have been working with their homeroom teachers and Mrs. Hart if they chose to be a part this reading challenge. 






Notes from Nurse Alli

Just a gentle reminder that strep/flu/cold season is upon us. We have had a couple confirmed cases of Flu B and also a rise in strep throat. It appears that the predominate symptoms of the cases we have seen are stomach ache, sore throat, headache, and fatigue followed by cough, fever, and dizziness. If I send your child home with a fever (or vomiting) or if your child is running fever at home, they MAY NOT return to school until they have been fever and vomiting free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of Advil, Tylenol or Multi-symptom cold relief medication. This is not only to protect all of their classmates, but also to protect your child whose immune system is already working hard.
Please click here or refer to the Lovejoy link provided (under the Clinic Department for Hart) for more helpful Flu information:

 
It is a good time to review proper handwashing practices with young children. Using soap and rubbing vigorously under running water for about 30 seconds to one minute is important to get rid of the germs that cause the flu. Asking young children to "sing the ABCs" at a steady rate while washing will help them reach the 30 second mark .
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 469-742-8156 or email me at allison_wright@lovejoyisd.net .
Thank you so much for helping to keep everyone healthy this season!
