Stories that Soar! Performance

Mark your calendar: the cast of Stories that Soar! will be at Sam Hughes THIS Friday, November 2. The performance will be in our courtyard at 9 am. Family and friends are welcome to enjoy the performance—be sure to bring chairs or blankets to sit on!

The cast of actors will be performing stories written by the students of Sam Hughes! It is so exciting to watch the students discover that their story is being brought to life!

You definitely want to attend this event!

Family Engagement Survey

I have sent a few ParentLink emails requesting your help in completing a survey for the district, and a paper copy was sent home last week in Thursday folders. (Please send any completed surveys in to your students teacher or the front office.) TUSD is gathering data about family engagement at the schools and it is imperative we take this opportunity to highlight our wonderful community!

Please support Sam Hughes by completing the survey at the link below. Your feedback is very important in communicating the wonderful community we have here at Hughes. The survey is available in both English and Spanish:

ENGLISH https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5G7S5DJ
SPANISH https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/DRFRW8Z

Thank you in advance for your time and support! We are gathering as many responses possibly by November 2nd.

Thank you to all of you that have already taken the time to complete the survey!

Thank you for being CREW!

Thank you,
Kat
