HAWK NEW BLAST

HAWK NEWS BLAST –  May 5, 2016

Nurre’s News 
Wertheimer students will be taking the Math STAAR test this coming Monday, May 9th, and the Reading STAAR test on Tuesday, May 10th. You can help your child prepare for the tests by making sure they get plenty of rest on Sunday and Monday. Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast on testing days. Also remember to give your child a big hug and let them know you believe in them as you send them off to school on Monday and Tuesday.

Other things to remember about STAAR testing days are that the time your child normally eats lunch will likely be different. It is best to send your child to school with a lunch if they are not going to purchase lunch in the cafeteria. However, if you need to drop off a lunch, be sure it is at the front desk by 10:45 a.m. Other important notes for testing days are that students do not need their backpacks, the school is closed to visitors, and it is best for students to leave cell phones at home. However, if your child must bring their cell phone, it must be given to the teacher during testing.

The students will be attending a school-wide assembly tomorrow, May 6th, and our schedule will be adjusted for the day. So all lunches will be slightly earlier than normal. We hope all students are able to attend the assembly which will be full of surprises. However, if you need to pick up your child for an appointment you should call ahead to let us know what time you plan to be here. We will do our best to have your child ready for you when you arrive.


Lunch Menu Changes
The lunch menu for Monday, May 9th and Tuesday, May 10th has been changed. On Monday the menu is ham and cheese sandwich, fresh broccoli and carrots, and fresh apples.  On Tuesday it will be corn dog, fresh carrots and cucumber slices, and fresh oranges.


Teachers are Appreciated
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers work very hard, and a quick note or e-mail to let them know they are appreciated will make their day.


Order Your Yearbook Now
There was an issue with the online yearbook store earlier this week, but that has been corrected. The cost is only $30. The hard cover book is all color and a great way to preserve memories of your child’s sixth grade year. There are two ways to order:

  • Go online to www.balfour.com – type “Wertheimer”, then click on the picture of the yearbook located towards the bottom of the screen.
  • Order Forms – Pick-up an order form in the front office or print from our website.

Do not delay, order today.


Immunization Records Needed 
We have received a few more immunization records, but we are still a long way from 100%. Students will not be given a schedule and will not be permitted to attend classes next school year without required 7th grade immunizations.The school nurses do not work in the summer. For that reason, we ask that updated records be turned in before the end of this year. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Dillard at 832-223-4106 or kdillard@lcisd.org.


Athletic Physicals for 2016-2017
Students wishing to participate in athletics in Junior High must have an annual athletic physical on file before participating. Students received packets with physical information last week. This information will also be posted on our website. For your convenience, doctors from the Memorial Hermann/UT Physicians Medical Group will be at Foster HS on May 18th. Wertheimer students will be escorted by our coaches to Foster after school. Parents must meet their child at Foster by 4:00 p.m. Your child may not be finished at that time, but supervision will only be available until 4:00 p.m. You are not required to obtain a physical on this date. Just keep in mind that your doctor must complete the district’s physical form. No other form will be accepted. If you have any questions, please contact the Foster Athletic Training Room at 832-223-3970.
