Dr. Hanson generously gives back to HCK!
Thank you to Dr. Hanson for donating 30 backpacks to the students of Higgs, Carter, King G/T Academy. Dr. Hanson has been a great partner and supporter of HCK for over a year, and we appreciate everything he has done for us.
Learning Important things on the First Day back
Mrs. Yarbrough helped lead a welcoming session with HCK 8th-12th graders in the gym this morning. The students learned about the virtues of being leaders in life and making wise choices. The students also learned about the legacies of the school's namesakes: Minnie Higgs, Kenneth Carter, and Janice King, and how they impacted the founding of the school. We are excited for the start of the school year and hoping that all of our student start this year with the zeal to make this year better than the last!
Leading by Example
HCK Senior Jessica Alverado started the year off right along with Mrs. Yarbrough, Ms. Connie Perez, and Ms. Angela Jones (from GO Card) on Saturday, August 24th. She attended a Leadership Team meeting to get her final year of school off to a positive and encouraging start. At HCK we want all of our high school students to lead-by-example for the other students so that they can understand the value of being a leader in society.
Summer School 2013!
Coach Kris Shields helped lead teaching this past summer along with other HCK staff. Our Summer Program was a success this year with so many fun and educational activities to maintain our high level of learning. We are about to start a new school year, and some of us are keeping the educational momentum at a high energy level, ready to dominate this year of learning.
HCK teachers and staff at EEP Summer Institute!
This summer, some of our teachers and administrators attended the Educational Effectiveness Process' Summer Institute held in Horseshoe Bay, Tx. While at the conference, our HCK staff was able to connect with other charter schools from around San Antonio, Houston, and Corpus Christi in order to prepare more effectively for this upcoming school year. The staff who attended received some great advice from some of the leading professionals working in the educational field, as well as collaborated on many important topics that will hopefully lead to student success in 2013-14.
Welcome Back, Teachers!!
Higgs, Carter, King welcomed back some returning teachers as well as some new teachers who are enthusiastic to start the 2013-14 school year! Teachers will be in training 8/19 - 8/23, with students returning on August 26.
NOTE TO PARENTS: Teachers will be making calls this week to schedule an in-person appointment in your student's classroom so that they can discuss with you important information as well as allow opportunity for parents to discuss any questions or concerns they may have as we enter the new school year. There will be some very important documents for parents to fill out so we need as much parental participation as possible.
Higgs, Carter, King mentioned in Forbes Magazine!
SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- When Principal Claudette Yarbrough decided to implement ACTION 100 at Higgs, Carter, King Charter School, she pledged to make the entire school community accountable for results. In partnership with American Reading Company, administrators and teachers will undergo 30 days of professional development training to master research-based teaching methods aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the new Common Core Standards. Already, more than 300 parents have attended mandatory parent workshops.
"At our ACTION 100 kickoff event, staff brought in community leaders to establish expectations," says Yarbrough. "San Antonio Police Chief McManus gave a rousing speech to students about how reading can take them to college, and he had all the students shouting, 'I will go to college' and 'I love to read!'
