Hixson Highlights - October 17, 2016

It was great to see so many parents during conferences! If you were unable to join us during conference time, please feel free to email your child's teachers and ask for an update on his/her progress. 

Donation Contest - WEDNESDAY

Ms. Kraushaar, ELA teacher on Willow, has created a project to be funded on PledgeCents. Ms. K would like to organize a Parent-Student Reading Evening at Hixson. On this Wednesday, PledgeCents is having a contest with Ms. K and 9 other teachers to win up to an additional $800 to her project. The project that raises the most donations on WEDNESDAY wins! To donate to Ms. K's project, please visit https://www.pledgecents.com/cause/yfgfhn/building-lasting-reading-lives-with-a-pa. But please wait until Wednesday as any donations before then do not count towards the contest. Good luck, Ms. K!

PTO Meeting - October 19

Most Likely to Succeed

The Webster Groves School District will present “Most Likely to Succeed,” an award-winning documentary on the worldwide campaign to re-imagine education at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Hixson auditorium. The film offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. The event is free and open to the public. The evening will include dialogue about learning in schools today.
The film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school.
