Attendance Notes
If your child has been out during this grading cycle, even if you have already sent a note, please forward excuse notes to  This new email address will now be used for all absence excuse notes.  We are having a problem with the other email address and would like to make sure all excuse notes are processed before report cards go out at the end of this grading cycle.

I hope you will be able to join us on Thursday evening at Pershing MS, as the PTOs for Pin Oak, Pershing and Bellaire HS present SCREENAGERS.  

Award-winning SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.

The evening with begin at 6:30 p.m. and will include the one-hour movie along with a short panel discussion.  Students are welcome to attend with their parents. Pin Oak students in attendance will receive a free dress pass. NJHS members will receive service hours credit for attendance.
