Dear Boone Families,
Welcome to our inaugural newsletter, the Boone Barker! My name is Amanda Reyes and I am the principal of Boone Elementary. I saw many of you at our big mascot reveal celebration on Monday and it was thrilling to see everyone’s excitement.
There are so many things to do to prepare for our first school year and I am working hard alongside our PTO to create amazing experiences for our students and families. My goal is to provide exceptional academic opportunities for your children while ensuring that they create memories that they carry with them for the rest of their lives. I am currently interviewing applicants for my leadership team and soon I will begin hiring our teaching staff. Our staff will be comprised of a minimum of 40% current Highland Park educators and will provide outstanding instruction that inspires a love of learning and continues to provide the academic excellence that Highland Park exemplifies.
As the fifth elementary school in Highland Park ISD, Boone will be like the other four schools in its offerings. We will have Music, PE, Art, and Spanish in our Specials rotation. We have a beautiful science lab where students will experience weekly hands-on learning with their science curriculum. We will offer special programs like TAG and Take Flight as well as Special Education services that meet our students’ needs. In other words, Boone will be an excellent place for your children to learn, grow, and thrive just like their current campuses.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and your precious children in the coming months. I am happy to answer any questions you have as we go on this journey together.
Amanda Reyes, Principal
