February 2016

Dear Horbelt Parents:


The month of February is always a very busy one for the students of the Horbelt School. As you probably are aware, February marks both Black History Month and Presidents’ Day. Classroom teachers will be doing lessons in both of these areas with their students. Teachers are now focusing their preparation of our students for the upcoming PARCC testing that will take place later this year.  A big picture schedule can be found at the bottom of this page under headlines.  More information will be coming next month.


Report cards for the 2nd marking period will be issued February 12th; please check your child’s backpack when they come home that day. Our Awards Day is scheduled for the 25th,  so look for forthcoming information about that day as we recognize the achievements of our children.


February also marks the day we are in school officially for 100 days! Time goes by fast when you are having fun!


The district will be closed on Monday, February 15th for Presidents’ Day Weekend. School will closed on Tuesday, February 16th for a Teachers Professional Development Day


Our academic press to become better readers continues in full swing! You have heard me mention that students are reading furiously! To date, our students have read over 970,000 minutes! Amazing, right? I am a believer in their ability to read, but more is better! Please keep them reading by encouraging your kids to read at home.   It is a life skill they may not understand now, but they will definitely not regret later in life!


Below I have listed upcoming events that will be occurring during the month of February at RLHS:


February 3       Science Fair Project drop off after 3:00


February 4       Science Fair 5:00 - 7:00 PM


February 10     PTA Meeting

February 17     Talent Show Practice 6-8

In closing, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
