 End of Semester Information:

The last day of the fall semester is Friday, December 19th. HISD secondary campuses give exams on the last three days of school. We do not do parties or movies on the last day of school. It is a day of learning – or assessing learning. We are expecting all students to be present. So, please make your travel plans after the Friday dismissal time of 12:35 pm. Students will be instructed not to bring backpacks on the early release days.

End of Semester Exam Schedule:

Progress Reports

The 2nd Nine Week grading period for the 1st semester of 2014-15 is shortened because we will complete the 1st semester on December 19th, prior to Winter Break. The second progress report of this grading period is scheduled for distribution on December 17th at middle and high schools.  AMS will still distribute printed progress reports on 12/17, but we also ask that you please login to Home Access Center (HAC) at https://eshac.humble.k12.tx.us/homeaccess/ to view your student’s progress report on or after December 16th. Once logged in, click Interim Progress from the left side menu to view the Interim Progress Report that includes grades through 12/12/2014.You can always login to HAC and click Classwork from the left side menu to view assignments and grades for all of your student's classes as well. Please don't wait for a progress report to know how your student is doing. 
 

                                          6th Grade Parents
Course selection cards are going home with students on December 9th during Science class.  The course cards are due back to the Science Department on December 18th and 19th.  It is very important to complete and return the course card to ensure your child receives the classes that they are requesting.  Please circle the core classes of your choice on the back, select 7 electives, and sign the back.  Return the course cards to the counseling office as soon as possible.

In addition, The Middle School Course Guide is also available online at the district website. It has been developed to help students and their families plan for their future. Brief descriptions of all required and elective courses available to Humble Independent School District middle school students are included in this handbook.

If you should any questions, please feel free to contact me at (281) 641-4628.

Thank you for your time and support. -Mrs. Nichols

We will send a weekly alert each Monday at 4:00 p.m. In the example below, the parent will receive an email alert when the student’s average falls below 75% in any class or when the student’s average is above 90% in any class.
