Dear HSI-Katy Community,

Harmony School of Innovation Katy is a 1st year campus at this new building, and serves the needs of underprivileged 8-12 grade students in the Greater Houston area. Although we focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), core subjects are taught through our TEA approved curriculum that prepare our students to confidently excel in all academic areas. 

Throughout the year our academy hosts enrichment activities such as programs and festivals to engage and further involve our parents and community members in the development of the world’s next leaders – our students. The programs that we host help diversify the knowledge and the skillsets our students hold and also help us build a strong positive campus culture among our students, staff, and parents. With the absence of a Parent Teacher Organization, we have been struggling to collect items to make our events a success. 

I have attached a list of items we are in need of and tentative events/programs for students and staff.

We need corporate and individual sponsors to donate incentives for the programs and events in the form of prizes, monetary donations on Revtrak, and/or food/beverage donations. 

We hope that you and/or your corporation can help us by donating items for any of the events listed above. 

We) hope that you will visit our website https://hsikaty.harmonytx.org/ for up to date information about our campus.  

Our tax exempt number is 760615245. 

Thank you for your generosity and support in helping us develop well-rounded citizens who will learn to give back to their community.

Sincerely,

Dina Hamadi
Engagement Coordinator

Dear HSI-Katy Parents and Students,
Picture Day ID: EVTP2VDQX

 

Dear Parents,

During the month of September, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic
Progress ® (MAP ® ). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and
to measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of
Math, Reading, Language and Science (6-8) and Math, Reading, Language(9-10) . Your child
will take the tests on a computer or Chromebook.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a
result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude
toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time
while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Following each
testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.

Math Map test September 12th (8th-9th and 10th grade)
Reading Map test September 13th(8th-9th and 10th grade)
Science MAp test September 14th 8th grade
We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and
achievement. Partnering to help all kids learn, parents and teachers can have a profound
positive effect on the lives of our children.
