President's Message

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I’m looking forward to seeing you this Thursday at 7:00pm for this month’s PTO meeting.  We’ll meet via Zoom, so join from wherever you are for some great updates from the PTO Board and Principal Thompson.  We’re also pleased to welcome Mrs. Boardman to share a brief presentation on the art program at Lovett, and Mrs. Prince who will share a bit about her role as wraparound specialist and the services available to Lovett families. 

It’s an off day for the Astros, so come if you can!

Let me know if you have questions, and we’ll see you Thursday at 7:00pm!

Lovett Rocks Campaign Update

We are shouting WE LOVE LOVETT!  We are focusing our efforts to complete the renovations on the playgrounds. We encourage every family to make a meaningful contribution. NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL. We are very sensitive to the continued financial stress that the COVID-19 pandemic has on our community and we appreciate each family’s gift. Our goals are to raise $40,000 and have 100% participation from our families. Every penny helps!  Find out more and donate today!

HISD Superintendent Listen & Learn

Please join HISD's new Superintendent, Millard House II at any of his upcoming community meetings.  A full schedule of the Listen & Learn meetings can be found here.

"It is essential that we listen to you—the parents and community of HISD—about what direction this district should take. From the beginning, I have said that I want to work authentically with people and organizations who have traditionally been left out of the shared leadership of HISD. I want to create a place at the table for everyone who wants or needs to be heard. "

Updated Lovett Parent Handbook

Principal Thompson shared the recently updated Lovett Parent Handbook via Class Dojo.  The handbook is always a work in progress and the administration will continue to update throughout the year.

Storybook Pumpkin Patch

We are growing a storybook pumpkin patch, and we need your help! Decorate a pumpkin to look like one of your favorite book characters and bring it to the library to plant in our Storybook Pumpkin Patch! 

Participation is completely voluntary.  This is not a judged contest. Each student who brings a decorated pumpkin will earn one small treat. More information can be found here.
