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.

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.

Toys for Tots


Evelyn D. Houston Elementary Beta Club and Honor Society has teamed up with the United States Marine Corps to collect new, unwrapped toys for Christmas gifts for less fortunate children in the community. You can help these kids experience Christmas by donating a new toy!

Our goal is to collect 150 new, unwrapped toys by December 15, 2014.  Please help us meet this goal by donating today.  You can drop your new toy in the box located in the front hall at school.  We appreciate your help!

Thank you,
Beta Club and Honor Society Members
