Harmony Giving Day 2017

Harmony College Fund Graphic


Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.

We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.

Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.

Thank you for your generosity.

Title I, Parents’ Right-to-Know: Highly Qualified Teachers

Parents Right to know

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law on December 10, 2015.  The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of theElementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  Under ESSA, all schools receiving Title I funds must inform parents of their right to ask schools about the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers.  HSI-Sugar Land encourages parents to communicate with their child’s teacher(s) on a regular basis.  Additionally, parents are welcome to contact their child’s Dean of Academics, Mrs. Qutob for middle School and Mrs. Ahmad for high school, or the Dean of Students, Mr. Duff.  If you would like to view a teacher’s license, please access this link: https://secure.sbec.state.tx.us/sbeconline/virtcert.asp.  For more information on ESSA and the role of parents, please visit the United States Department of Education’s website at https://www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/essa/index.html.

We Did It Again – 7 out of 7 Distinctions!!!

TEA Distinction Designation

HSI-Sugar Land is proud to celebrate our outstanding accountability ratings as determined by the Texas Education Agency.  Our exemplary 2017 STAAR scores have earned us all seven possible distinctions; our campus is one of only 400 total schools statewide to have merited such an achievement.  According to Commissioner of Education Mike Morath, “Earning one or more campus distinctions is noteworthy and should be a source of pride in a community.  Earning all possible distinctions is a significant accomplishment and should signal to parents that there is extraordinary work taking place on campus.”  HSI-Sugar Land feels deep pride and gratitude for the students, teachers, staff, and parents who contribute to the extraordinary work we do.

Please see the attached documents to view HIS-Sugar Land’s accountability summary reports from 2017 and years prior.

Spinal Screening

Spinal Testing for School

Our campus will be conducting a state mandatory  spinal screening for all 9th grade students. This procedure for screening is simple. The nurse’s aid is certified and has years of experience in this procedure. All boys and girls will be examined individually. If your student has received this examination within this year please submit the report to the nurse’s aid to avoid a 2nd screening. If, for religious reasons you wish your student not to be screened, you must submit a signed Notarized exemption form and turn it in by November 13, 2017. Student or parents may pick up an exemption form from the front office.
