News to Know
Announcing the 2020-21 Boone theme and logo!
It's a tradition in HPISD for elementary schools to have a theme each year, and we are excited to announce that the theme for Boone's inaugural 2020-21 school year will be "History in the Making!" It's going to be an exciting one at Boone and definitely a year for the history books!

In Back to School Sign-Up (BSSU), you'll have the opportunity to buy a limited edition t-shirt featuring our theme for the year and contribute to family giving to receive a "History in the Making" yard sign.

We'll soon be sharing dates for the many fun events we're planning for next year and launching our new website, so stay tuned!
Online auction continues thru Thursday!
Don't miss out on your chance to win some fun items for our first year at Boone. Your child's name and picture could be on a plaque by the Art Room or another common space for the whole year. You could go on a VIP tour with Principal Reyes or have a reserved bicycle parking space with your child's name on it!

You can also buy Boone-colored balloons to be delivered to your house for the first day of school and a limited edition Boone t-shirt (available in youth and adult sizes). Both items are $25.

The auction closes this Thursday, May 21st at 10pm.
