In this week’s issue, you will find information on the Hurricane Harvey Registry, a research study that collects information on the impact of Hurricane Harvey on our Greater Houston area community. Any adult in the Harvey-impacted, Greater Houston area should complete this survey. Your answers are important, whether Harvey impacted you severely, lightly, or not at all.
We are reminding you that September is National Preparedness Month. The theme of this first week is “Make and Practice Your Plan”, which you can read more about below. Next week’s theme will be “Learn Life Saving Skills”.
Next week will also see a State Board of Education (SBOE) Board Meeting where public comment will be taken on the streamlined social studies standards and instructional materials. The board meeting begins at 9 a.m. in room 1-104 of the Travis Building at 1701 N. Congress Ave. in Austin. There will first be a public hearing on the new instructional material, followed by a public hearing on the curriculum standards. Learn more about how to register to testify and offer comment below. Local PTA volunteer, Laura Clarke, of Humble ISD will also be honored at the SBOE meeting on Tuesday as the 2018 Hero for Children from District 8.
Lastly, the A&E Network will be releasing a new documentary called “Deaf Out Loud” featuring students from the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) and their families. Click the link below to see a preview of this groundbreaking show.
