Friendly Reminders:

  •  Snacks: Please send at least 1 small, healthy snacks with your child each day. Often students bring the same snack, so please label each snack with your child’s name on it. ***If you and your family are unable to make this happen due to your displacement, please let your child’s teacher know.
 
  • Free Breakfast and Lunch for FLOODED FAMILIES: If you and your family have been displaced due to flooding in your home, your child may come to school in the mornings for free breakfast in the cafeteria as well as enjoy a free lunch during your child’s lunchtime.
 
  • Free School Supplies for FLOODED FAMILIES: If you and your family have lost your child’s school supplies due to flooding, please contact our principal Mrs. Pennington, or our assistant principal Mrs. Stalknaker and they will be in contact with you and get you what your child needs to be prepared for school.
 
  • Residency Form for FLOODED FAMILIES: Please go onto the SBISD website and fill out a residency form if you have been displaced from your home.
 
  • Weather/Dismissal ChangesIf due to the weather/changes in schedule/current living arrangements, your child’s normal dismissal changes (for example, from walker to parent pick up) please CALL THE OFFICE as soon as you are able. Often when parents make dismissal  changes at the last minute and send his/her teacher an email we don’t see it in time due to our lessons, so please call the office and they will contact us. Please keep in mind many children are going home different ways the next few weeks so it is imperative our office staff and your child’s teacher is aware of any changes.
 
  • Tardies will not be issued this week due to flooded streets and traffic.
 
  • Sweaters/Jackets: Unfortunately some of our classrooms are those of extremes – its either super cold in the fall/spring, or warm and toasty in the winter. So, please feel free to send your child with a sweater/jacket that they can keep here at school (be sure to label the tag with their name please).
 
Upcoming Events:

 
  • Picture Day, Tuesday, Sept. 19th

Hello Frostwood Parents,                                                                   

We are having a parent meeting on Monday morning, September 18th, @ 7:30 am, in the library. The purpose of this meeting is for families that have experienced flooding to gather as a FWE community for coffee.

We will get to know one another, share stories, and ask questions. We will have folks there that speak several languages so that you are able to ask questions and each have a better understanding of what SBISD is able to do to support your child and your family. We will also have a FEMA representative there to answer questions.

Please join us if you are able as we want to support you through this difficult time.

Vamos a tener una reunión con los padres el lunes 18 de septiembre a las 7:30 AM en la biblioteca. El propósito de esta reunión es que las familias que han sufrido inundaciones se reúnan para tomar café como comunidad de FWE.

Tendremos a personas que hablan diferentes idiomas para que todos tengan la oportunidad de hacer preguntas y para que cada uno tenga una mejor comprensión de lo que SBISD es capaz de hacer para ayudar y apoyar a su hijo (a) y a su familia.

Por favor asista a esta reunión si le es posible, ya que queremos apoyarlos durante este momento tan difícil.

Dear SBISD Families and Staff,


As an indication of generosity and kindness of our Spring Branch ISD community, we have received many messages from concerned neighbors asking how people can help the students and families that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Numerous SBISD families have lost so much.

The Spring Branch Education Foundation has launched a Pledgecents fundraiser (see link above) that will provide funds to support families of students and staff who have been adversely impacted by flooding in their homes as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The funds will be administered by the Spring Branch Education Foundation.

Any donation you can make regardless of size will help us help our Spring Branch ISD families. Please share this opportunity to help on social media to spread the word.

Thank you for your support, whether through this donation opportunity, or any other way in which you are helping support our community.

Note: All contributions will be tax deductible, and you will receive a tax receipt when your donation is processed.

Thank you,

Cece Thompson, Executive Director
Spring Branch Education Foundation

Host Families:

Please let me know if you are available to be a "host" family for another FWE family that has flooded. This will entail you calling and checking in with this family to see what their needs are. You can then get others to help buy items they need or find avenues for them to get stuff. The items will then be delivered to the family. So far I have 93 host families, but we have about 112 families who need assistance in our FWE community. I know that some of you are already doing this for a family and that is great! If it is a FWE family, please let me know so I can check them off my list of affected families.

Please know this does not mean you are housing anyone, just checking in on them and helping them source help. 

Thank you for any and all assistance you provide,

Heather Cody

Benefits are loaded on a Lone Star Card within three days of applying, and the amount is equal to two months of the maximum amount of SNAP benefits, based on household size.

There is a limited period of time to apply for D-SNAP, based on your county of residence.
If you have additional questions about D-SNAP, call 2-1-1 and after picking a language choose option 6.


10. Mortgage assistance:

https://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=%2Fprogram_offices%2Fhousing%2Fsfh%2Fins%2F203h-dft
This program provides mortgage insurance to protect lenders against the risk of default on mortgages to qualified disaster victims. Individuals are eligible for this program if their homes are located in an area that was designated by the President as a disaster area and if their homes were destroyed or damaged to such an extent that reconstruction or replacement is necessary. Insured mortgages may be used to finance the purchase or reconstruction of a one-family home that will be the principal residence of the homeowner. Like the basic FHA mortgage insurance program it resembles (Section 203(b) Mortgage Insurance for One to Four Family Homes), Section 203(h) offers features that make recovery from a disaster easier for homeowners

Frostwood Family, the Boheme Washing Team, comprised of 12 families, is ready and able to accept and process your laundering needs. Whether you are without power, currently without a machine, or just need help, your friends are ready to SERVE with absolutely no judgement. Unfortunately since Horrible Harvey has disrupted our beloved Frostwood Family for so long, we’ve missed the window for safely laundering submerged clothing. However, any clothing or bedding that wasn’t submerged will be safely cleaned. Due to the water restrictions, we will launder all items at a laundromat outside of the impacted zip codes until the restrictions are lifted. Please contact us at Bohemewashingteam@gmail.com and we will schedule a pickup and delivery. We want you to contact us now or in the future as we know that is a long-term need.

  COMMUNITY NEWS

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

Below is the map that the Solid Waste Management Department provided our office yesterday to show where their trucks were picking up storm debris.  They reported that there are 121 trucks in the field, and from this map it looks like there might have been a couple of them in District G.

Council Member Travis, noticing the lack of trucks on the hard hit west side, spent the evening and the morning sending emails and texts to the administration demanding trucks in the area. 

We are happy to report that this weekend storm debris removal will begin in Nottingham Forest, Memorial Glen, Fonn Villas and a few other neighborhoods in these areas.  

Please remove all parked vehicles in these areas this evening.  Trucks will begin debris removal early in the morning. Large trucks need to be able to safely access streets in these neighborhoods. If the trucks cannot get to the debris piles because of parked vehicles, they will not be able to pick up the debris.

Apparently, the administration is putting out trucks based on where the 311 calls are coming in for service. If your storm debris has not been picked up, please call 3-1-1 and report your address and that you need your storm debris removed. Ask your neighbor to call 3-1-1.  Post this request on your community website, bulletin board, or via your eblast system.

We continue to be told by SWM that there is no schedule for debris pickup.  They will let our office know day by day where their trucks will be, and we will let constituents know where they can anticipate debris pick up. We are still working hard for all of our neighborhoods still in dire need of debris removal.

Dear Frostwood Parents,
 
My name is Katie Hemphill and I am the new Frostwood Violin teacher.  I have taught in SBISD for many years as a Fiddler teacher and an orchestra director.  I taught at Frostwood 26 years ago and now I an returning with great joy.

I wanted to make sure you were informed that FWE has a violin program.  Your child would have a 15 minute private lesson during the school day and a group lesson after school with their friends.

We perform close to once a month, we have a concert with all of the SBISD schools that have a fiddler program in October, we will play at the mall in Decemeber,  a solo festival, our own summer camp called Fiddlers Fair, and we are even going to try to perform at a Stratford versus Memorial basketball game this year!

If you are interested in the fiddler program please contact me for more information!

Mrs. Hemphill

In the aftermath of hurricane Harvey, we know that so many of our employees, customers, friends, and neighbors have suffered loss. Anything Bling wants to do our part in helping our community heal by helping refill closets with new and stylish clothing! We reached out to our favorite vendors to ask them to donate whatever they could and the response was overwhelming! We received pallets of clothing that we would like to donate to the women whose closets were flooded in the hurricane. Anything Bling is committed to helping the women of our community feel stylish and confident!


When:              Monday, September 18 & Tuesday, September 19 at  10:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Where:             Anything Bling Boutique

We are also offering the opportunity for friends and neighbors to help by sponsoring a victim two ways.  Make a donation of $2 for each item up to ten items, proceeds will go to our employees whose homes were destroyed by Harvey or purchase any full priced item and receive one free item for each item purchased.

In addition, we also have our Texas water T-shirts for sale for $28.  100% of the profits will be donated to local Hurricane Harvey victims.

We hope that everyone is recovering from the craziness of the past few weeks.  So many of our Tribble School families have had to overcome so much in the weeks since Hurricane Harvey.  Please know that you are constantly in our thoughts, and that the Queensbury and Tribble staff are here to help in any way we can.

This coming week, we are trying to help in one of the ways we know best - getting up on stage! In an effort to offer some assistance to our community, Queensbury Theatre is hosting a one-night benefit concert this coming week.  We are joining with artists and organizations from all over the city (just check out the list below!) to create a concert full of music, song, dance and theater for all ages!

We would love to have any and all of our Tribble students and family members join us this coming Thursday, September 21st at 7:30pm - to take a break from all the hard work of the past weeks, and enjoy time together in the collaborative company of Houston's arts community.

Tickets can be purchased for $50, $75, or $100 online, and 100% of all ticket sales and donations will go directly to the Mayor's Fund - supporting the ongoing relief effort for our community.
