Intermediate Insight Week of 3-22

  • This week of school at H.I.S. has been amazing! It was so good to see all of our students smiling faces!  Our teachers and students have been busy working hard every day at H.I.S.!  High expectations have been communicated and are still being set for our students to strive for excellence daily.  Our students are already exceeding those expectations every day! H.I.S. chooses LOVE!
  • Enrichment students had a great time yesterday performing for the Lions Club, and they represented our school fabulously! Now we are looking forward to E3. This week was also the beginning of new music classes for our last quarter. We are reviewing rules, procedures, and rhythms this week, and will begin our normal schedule next week.

  • GATE students are continuing their research projects based on Medieval Times. For each chosen topic, they are examining how things have changed over time.  We will be taking their finished projects to E3, so be sure to stop by our booth and check out their projects!
  • In third grade, we have been reviewing nonfiction text. We started the week by giving students a passage and spent the week focusing on specific skills that they missed on the pretest.  By focusing on these skills, students were able to see the progress they made on the post-test at the end of the week.
  • This week in 5th grade science, students were assessed on their knowledge of the day and night cycle, the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky, the physical characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, and the order of the planets in our Solar System. Students then learned how fossils are used to obtain evidence of past living organisms and the nature of the environment at that time. Students applied their knowledge in a station activity that required them to make predictions based on the evidence provided by fossils.
  • Artists at HIS learned about how some artists make art out of recycled objects. We used leftover laminate pieces to create a 3D aquarium picture of sea animals.
  • Eagle Math is hard at work analyzing the correct placement of numbers on a number line. We are also comparing and ordering multi-digit numbers on a number line.
  • In 4th Social Studies, students learned about early transportation in Texas and across the United States as well as early economic resources in Texas. In 4th Science, students participated in a "bean lab" by growing and studying a plant grown from a bean. In 4th ELAR, students practiced their various skills in passages, both writing and reading as well as practicing their writing skills by writing a composition using the entire writing process from start to finish. In 4th Math, students solved, with fluency, one- and two-step problems.
