School History

The Hassler family in Germany has been traced as far back as 1750. On July 25, 1858, Marie Katherina Wunderlich married Wilhelm Hassler in the church in Birkalbach, Germany. In the next two years, the couple had two children, Heinrich and Friedrich Wilhelm. In 1861, the Hassler Family immigrated to Texas. During that time, their child, Friedrich, died. In Texas, the Hasslers settled in the Big Cypress area and began farming. Wilhelm Hassler died of a fever between the years of 1863 and 1864. In 1865, Katherina married Heinrich Kaiser, a veteran of the Civil War. They had several children of their own together while also raising Heinrich Hassler. Descendants of Heinrich continue to live in the Klein community.

Counseling Program

Our counselor works in a partnership with our students, their parents, and our staff to help our students achieve success academically, socially, and emotionally. She organizes a number of school wide events, including our Character Development and Stand Up to Bullying programs, the No Place for Hate initiative, Red Ribbon Week, and Paint the Community with Peace Week. The overall goal of our school’s counseling program is to assist our students in becoming healthy, confident, and responsible citizens with a life-long love of learning!

Parent Involvement

Our PTO is dedicated to the success of every student and we encourage parents to become involved in their child’s education. On any given day, we have numerous volunteers assisting our teachers and working with the administration to come up with new ideas and programs for our students. From our weekly Reading Literacy Program to our Field Day in the spring, Hassler Elementary continues to be a leader in promoting a quality education and nurturing environment for our students.

Core Curriculum

Hassler staff and administration continuously work to provide a high level of instruction. Hassler has the following initiatives that are associated with our core programs: pony reading, pony math, Hassler’s Important People (HIP) tutoring, reading literacy program and math club.

English Language Arts

In the elementary ELA program, the emphasis is on the development of fundamental reading and writing skills. Reading instruction includes training in phonics, structural analysis, sight word recognition, context clues, vocabulary development, comprehension, study skills, and literary appreciation. Writing instruction teaches students how to use written language appropriately. Instruction includes specific training in grammar, spelling, handwriting, word usage, punctuation, and capitalization, as well as more generalized training in composing written expressions. Skills in speaking and listening are also taught with the instruction for reading and writing.

Math

At the elementary level, students build a foundation of basic understandings for the following: number operation and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.

Science

At the elementary level, students learn science basic skills and how to identify components of the natural world. Students study life, earth, and physical science concepts.

Social Studies

In grades K-12, students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, science, technology and society, and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation.
