Welcome Back!

Greetings!

I am Mr. Mehmet Basoglu, your Principal at Harmony School of Innovation. On behalf of the staff at Harmony School of Innovation, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year!

I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in the classroom, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

I hope to have a wonderful school year for 2018-2019 and I look forward to working with all of you! Below is contact information for myself and my administration team. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Wednesday Mail

Parents,This week started the second round of state testing with the addition of advanced placement exams. Along with taking state-mandated STAAR / EOC exams, our students will participate in 18 AP exams for which they can potentially earn college credit.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) is a state mandated test that measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-8; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in mathematics at Grades 3-8; in science at Grades 5, 8; and social studies at Grades 8. Furthermore STAAR End of Course (EOC) tests are administered to students enrolled in the following High school classes: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II and U.S. history. All students enrolled in those courses are REQUIRED to participate in this testing.

Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 5 & 8 Math & Reading and satisfactory performance on the STAAR EOC tests is prerequisite to a high school diploma.

Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before and a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.

STAAR Administration in April

Dear Parent(s):

STAAR testing time has come. In April, 7th through 10th grade students will take the STAAR /End of Course tests. We are confident that our students are ready. Students and teachers alike have been working rigorously since the beginning of the school year to master the skills needed to be successful on the STAAR tests.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) is a state mandated test that measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-8; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in mathematics at Grades 3-8; in science at Grades 5, 8; and social studies at Grades 8. All students enrolled in those courses are REQUIRED to participate in this testing.

Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 3-8.

The tests that will be administered in April are on the table above.

Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before, if not a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.

Thank you for all you do to help your student be as successful as possible, and for all of your contributions to Harmony School of Innovation.

I will be more than happy to assist if you have any questions.

Mehmet Basoglu,

School Principal

 

T-STEM

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Initiative (T-STEM)

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.

Prior to the 2011-2012 school year, the only path to become a T-STEM Academy was a T-STEM Academy grant through the Texas Education Agency or one of the private partners in the Texas High School Project.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, a second pathway was created. Campuses, using local or other sources of funding, that are implementing the T-STEM Design Blueprint with fidelity may apply to be designated as a T-STEM Academy. T-STEM campuses are designated based on a rigorous designation process. Once a campus is designated, professional development and technical assistance are provided to designated T-STEM academies to serve as demonstration schools and learning labs to showcase innovative instruction methods which integrate technology and engineering into science and mathematics instruction. Designated T-STEM campuses serve students in grades 6-12 or 9-12.
