Handwritten We Believe in making a difference

As the holidays are fast approaching, we would like to remind everyone about doing the volunteer registration.  With our upcoming classroom parties you MUST have a background check in order to attend the party in your child’s classroom.  It usually takes at least a week for it to be cleared.

We realize volunteers are an integral part of our school program.  Volunteers serve as a liaison between the home, school, and community and provide valuable support for all students.  We encourage all interested parents/guardians to sign up as a volunteer in our school. 

Per district policy, ALL VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION PROCESS EACH SCHOOL YEAR.

Honeycutt Media Center is holding a celebration of reading by displaying photos of students in front of a shelf of books–or “shelfies.”  A shelfie builds on an age-old tradition of showing off books that matter to us.  Books reveal a lot about our personalities and how we want to be seen.  To help celebrate books, snap a photo of yourself in a library, at home, or anywhere in front of your favorite books and print it out.  Bring it into the Media Center for display.  Please submit all pictures to Mrs. Perry, Mrs. Perez, or Mrs. Murillo to be displayed.  Due ANYTIME!
