Hixson Highlights - August 28, 2015

From the Principal, Dr. Smith...

What a wonderful start to 2015-2016!  Week two at Hixson has brought much fun and excitement in our classes and many unique and wonderful opportunities to learn.  Here are some of our highlights:

  • Rachel's Challenge sent a shirt to one of our students who has been advocating to bring back the Rachel's Challenge assembly.  Our counselor Mrs. Bodi presented this shirt with a special message from our friends at Rachel's Challenge.  You can help bring this amazing program back to Hixson by participating in our yearly Trivia Night on October 3rd (see below)
  • Our students are finding successes in their learning everywhere we look!  Teachers are differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all learners, and the use of our 1:1 Chromebooks across our classrooms is allowing teachers to meet student needs in extremely effective and unprecedented ways!!  
    • Thank you again to our PTO, staff, and district for your help in making our instructional dreams for students a REALITY!!!
  • After School Activities begin on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015.  Students may participate in one activity per day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:15- 4:00pm.  A list of activities is posted on our website http://hixson.webster.k12.mo.us/pages/Hixson Go to the PARENTS tab and click on the drop down AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES 
    • Please ensure your child has a ride or a way home promptly at 4:00 pm, as there is no supervision after 4 for students.  A reminder that the WG Rec center is available for students for a small fee for supervision after 4:00 pm.  Thank you for your cooperation.
