Houston's Christmas Trees

Houston's front hall is decked out!  We have six fully decorated trees inside and one outside.  The whole school was involved in this fun collaboration and friendly competition.  Each grade level had a tree.  In addition, each grade level collected new unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots drive.  Money was also collected and used to buy even more toys.  At the end of the day on Thursday we had two huge boxes and a wagon overflowing with toys.   The trees are still up and looking beautiful.  Please stop by and see them.

Also check out the article in the paper about our donations for the Toys for Tots.

The Elf Shelf Holiday Shop

In December the sixth grade students will be hosting the Elf Shelf Holiday Shop.  This is a temporary gift store that gives students the opportunity to purchase gifts for friends and family members.  The gifts are kid priced and mostly between $1 to $5 in range.   This is also a great opportunity for students to gain real life shopping experience, making decisions, budgeting, and handling money. All proceeds benefit the Houston Elementary Sixth-Grade Class.
