Welcome to Havana Magnet School where we will go B-yond the norm this school year!  I am so excited to begin another school term, as this promises to be a year filled with terrific opportunities for all of our students! We will continue to strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before.  We, the administration, faculty, and staff, embark on this journey with a pledge to you – our students and parents – that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms. A plethora of special events and incentives are planned that are certain to encourage our Soaring Eagles to be involved and stay connected!

Parents/guardians, we ask for your support this school term. Your active participation is key to the success of our children. It essentially has a huge impact on many students when they see parents and volunteers on campus assisting with various activities. There are numerous opportunities to get involved in at Havana Magnet School. Please consider joining us to volunteer as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with reading with children who need extra help, school-wide events, and student recognition events.

I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience. If your child is not in attendance, he/she is missing valuable information needed to succeed academically.

Reading is a top priority in all grade levels and disciplines. The Accelerated Reader Program will continue to be implemented for all students this year. Please ensure that your child is reading daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy and comprehension skills.

There are high expectations that have been established for the students. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. There is a zero-tolerance policy in place for misbehavior and misconduct. There are discipline procedures that will be followed, and you, the parent, will be contacted in regards to any discipline infractions that may occur.

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all areas at Havana Magnet School.

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want, need, and value your involvement and support in your child’s education!

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Havana. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. Again, welcome back to Havana and to our wonderful learning community–a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence!  Here’s to a Boundless new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
