Hickory Point Principal Newsletter- STAR Results and Picture Day


Hickory Point PTA Family Night


PTA Family Night

Thank you so much for attending our PTA Family Night. We had a ton of fun with Kona Ice, music, Josh’s, and the awesome playground. It was so great to all be together.  A special thanks to all the volunteers and parents who organized this event. 

Buckling Seat belt

Our car line pick-up process has been safe and quick. We appreciate everyone’s help by having the sign with your child’s name on the windshield. Please DO NOT get out of your car in the pickup line. Practice with your child buckling their seat belt or please quickly assist them from the car. This will help keep our process safe and quick. If you need additional time, please pull over on a side street to finish the process. 

Second Grade STAR Results

The results from the Fall STAR reading and math assessments will be mailed home on Tuesday. These assessments measure a student’s general knowledge of reading and mathematics. The tests are computer-adaptive. Computer-adaptive tests (CATs) continually adjust the difficulty of each child’s test by choosing each test question based on the child’s previous response. If the child answers a question correctly, the difficulty level of the next item is increased. If the child misses a question, the difficulty level is decreased. CATs save testing time and spare students the frustration of answering items that are too difficult or easy. Students typically complete the assessments in 20 to 30 minutes. The assessments are given three times during the year (fall, winter, and spring), and results are mailed home after each administration. 

Parent-Teacher Conference Sign Up

Parent-teacher conferences will take place in person on October 26 and 27. We are using Meet the Teacher to sign up for conferences giving the parent more control over their schedule!  The conference sign-up system will open on September 29 at 9:00 AM. Information about how to sign-up for a conference with your child’s teachers was emailed to you on September 21st.  As always, please contact your child’s teachers or the school office if you have any questions or concerns. Parent-teacher conferences are just one of the opportunities to talk about progress and parents are welcome and encouraged to reach out to their child’s teacher(s) at any time during the school year. It’s truly through our collaborative efforts that our students achieve success.
