Titanium: The Head of School's Blog
November 08, 2019
Greetings Titan family!
First, thank you to all the families, volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and staff members who helped make the Fall Festival a huge success. The weather was perfect and the event was a ton of fun. We are already looking ahead to next year, so if you are interested in helping out, please contact the TPA at TPA@hteshouston.org.
The school is not doing Friday Feasts in November and December due to the volume of activities and volunteers we need to help with these activities. These are also shorter months. Please remember to pack a lunch for your child in November and December. We will begin Friday Feasts again in January. Related to this, families who opt to pay via their FACTS tuition management account are not charged until the following month’s billing cycle. Payment is made then, not at the time of registering for participation. If you have any questions about billing and payments, you can log into your FACTS account or contact Mrs. Amaya in the Business Office.
Unless otherwise communicated, students are required to be in the fall/winter Chapel uniform as listed in the student handbook. Please check the handbook and make sure you have the correct items. These uniforms are also required for the upcoming student school pictures on November 18.
Veterans Day: November 11
HTES will, once again, honor veterans on November 11. We will have a program beginning just after 8 am in the gym. We encourage you to invite family or friends who are veterans to our event, so we can recognize their service. For questions or details, please contact Mrs. Davis.
Book Fair/Grandparents Day
Grandparents Day is Friday, November 22. That day is a noon dismissal day. That week is also our Scholastic Book Fair week. This year’s theme is Arctic Adventure!
Please come by and check out the items available this year. Teachers preview is on Monday, November 18. The event opens to the public on Tuesday, November 19. Purchases can be made with cash, check, or credit card. Shopping days/times are:

Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus
The Titan Parent Association is excited to announce that we are hosting a Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Friday, December 6 from 8-10 am in the gym/commons space. All HTES students and families are invited to join us. A delicious breakfast will be provided by Chef Cassi’s Table. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available to take pictures with your family. Students are allowed to wear Christmas/Holiday dress that day.
There is no charge to participate in Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. However, we are happy to accept donations to help offset the costs of the event. For more information, please contact the TPA at TPA@hteshouston.org.
Thank you for your continued support of our school.
It’s a great time to be a Titan,
