I would like to take this opportunity to offer a warm welcome to our new Shimotsu parents and to welcome back those of you who are already part of our family. On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration of Harry Shimotsu we are extremely proud to proclaim that Harry Shimotsu Elementary met all 4 performance index standards and was awarded all 6 distinctions possible by the Texas Education Agency for the 2013-2014 school year. This is why I can truly say, “Excellence Every Day That’s the Shimotsu Way”.
As we begin this new school year I would like to remind parents that we highly encourage walking or riding your bike to school. If you think your child is too young, I recommend a parent to walk with them or ride your bikes. If you choose to drop off your child by automobile please be watchful of pedestrians and bikers on the road and know that we have two drop off/pick up areas, one on the south side and one on the west side of the school. We will have school personnel outside directing parents to their proper location. We ask you to be respectful and courteous to those who are there to keep our students safe. We also ask you to please review the Sharyland ISD parent/student handbook with your child, particularly in the areas of absences/attendance, student code of conduct and dress code. Copies of the handbook are available in English and Spanish at our campus or on-line at www.sharylandisd.org.
I would like to thank you in advance for working together with the school in order to have a great year for your child. This will be year number 8 at Harry Shimotsu Elementary and I feel that 8 will be great.
