Sam Hughes Announcements
To help facilitate communication and provide contact information for classmates and parents, we are creating a student directory! Use this link to submit the contact information you would like listed:
*Please fill out a form for each child.
This directory will be solely for the use of Sam Hughes Elementary staff, students, and parents/guardians. The information in this directory is for personal use only and should not be used for any other purpose.
Our optional supply list for 2016-17 is ready and can be found attached to this post! If you would like to bring any of the supplies on the list for your student's classroom, you may. Everything your student needs for day-to-day learning will be provided for them. We do recommend you purchase a backpack for your student and label it with your student's name on the inside!
We have also had several questions about Sam Hughes's dress code. We comply with TUSD's Student Dress policy, but are not a uniform school--students can wear whatever colors and styles you and they agree on, as long as the clothing meets the district's standards of appropriate school wear.
If purchasing clothing and backpacks is a financial hardship for you, you can call the TUSD Clothing Bank at (520) 232-7058 to make an appointment. TUSD's family centers are here to help you.
On August 3rd, from 9 to 10 AM, our incoming kindergartners and their families are welcome to come and attend an open house. Come meet your teacher and your classmates!

The new route will pass by our school!
The 78th Annual Chuckwagon and Silent Auction will be held on Saturday March 12, 2016 from 2 – 6 P.M.
The Chuckwagon/Silent Auction is our biggest PTA fundraiser of the year. This unique fundraising event features a fun-filled afternoon of games, food and a silent auction. With the money raised from this event PTA is able to support great programs and provide funding for OMA, Chess, P.E., Raz-Kids, teacher stipends and field trips.
By coming together and making this a successful event we have greater opportunities to also support other educational needs such as tutors, technology or other events throughout the year.
Your support is important and greatly appreciated. Volunteers are always needed to make this event possible. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be on the planning committee.
We need items to auction off at the event.
Do you or a family member work for a business that manufactures something or provides a service? Do you regularly visit a local restaurant or salon that would be willing to donate a gift certificate? Do you make fun crafts? No amount is too small! Please help us collect:
Please contact Tina Castaneda at 520-419-0485 or email@example.com. Attached is the Silent Auction donation letter and form. All donations are tax-deductible.
We need your help to fill the 2015 – 2016 yearbook with cute photos from the school year. How many of the following can you find and submit? (Please send what you have NOW and then send more later — tell us who/what/where — e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Of course we can’t include everything that makes Sam Hughes wonderful, but we’ll try to cover a wide variety.
Please contact Lisa Coney at email@example.com if you can help solicit businesses to advertise in our yearbook.
This week we will have our annual Track & Field Days! Grades 3 – 5 will be participating on Thursday, February 18th, and grades K – 2 will be participating on Friday, February 19th. Both events should run from 8:45 – 12:00.
Please make sure your student has water, sunscreen, and appropriate clothes and shoes!
