    Join me Tuesday, September 28, 2021 for the first Virtual General PTO Meeting of the year at 6:00 PM.

    Understanding GPA and Optional Grade Conversion

    On Tuesday evening we will present a virtual meeting explaining GPA and will provide details on the option to convert some fine arts or athletics courses from a graded course to a “pass/fail” course and how that might impact your GPA.  This opportunity to convert courses is designed to encourage students to stay with their passion in the arts or athletics, without feeling the pressure to take unwanted courses to “protect” the GPA.  This meeting is particularly important for parents of sophomores but is a great way for freshmen to get ahead on important information for navigating GPA and course selection.

    Note – Juniors with courses that qualify will be meeting in small groups with their Deans to learn more about their options, but are also welcome to attend this meeting.

    HISD Connect Parent Portal

    We are quickly approaching the end of the grading cycle.  If you haven’t gotten connected with HISD Connect Parent Portal, it’s definitely time to do that.  If you are not sure how, please email your student’s Neighborhood Clerk.  You can find that contact information at

    Please review your child’s attendance and send notes for any absences that need to be excused.  These notes go to the Neighborhood Clerk.

    Also take a moment to review the paperwork that can be completed online through the Parent Portal.  All documents should be reviewed and electronically signed.
