Houston Elementary School
Houston Elementary School has approximately 500 students in grades PK-6. Amazing teachers, outstanding students, and 21st century classrooms create a positive learning experience for all students. Each K-6 classroom is equipped with a promethean board and a student response system. Each 3-6 classroom has access to Mac laptop carts containing laptops for each student and Ipads for individual student use. Our first and second grade students enjoy the use of NEO2's and the computer lab. Our "team approach" to educating children has proven successful and we believe that TOGETHER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Mrs. Carter's, Mrs. Taylor's, and Mrs. Tyson's class participated in the 2nd-Grade Math Bowl at Houston Elementary on May 16th. What a great way to enjoy the fine weather, Houston's courtyard, and practice multiplication facts. They had several fast paced games.

The students who made their AR goals for the year celebrated by going on a free trip to the zoo. The students had to get enough AR points and maintain over 85% on comprehension of level appropriate books. They enjoyed the new dinosaur exhibit, carousel, petting zoo, train ride, and feeding the lorikeets as well as all of the animals and nature trails. The weather was perfect for a day at the zoo!

Wednesday, April 24th, was Secretary's Day. The staff brought in food and gifts for Mrs. Blankenship. We had three long tables filled with treats. We love Mrs. Blankenship. She does such a fantastic job of taking care of us and keeping things running smoothly. Thank you Mrs. Blankenship for all that you do for us and for always doing so with a smile.

Mrs. Hadley's 1st-grade class had fun making giant 3-Dimensional shapes. The students worked together in teams to make their own pyramids. They rolled the tubes out of paper and then used their problem solving skills to figure out how to best assemble their shapes. Of course the decorating and climbing inside was fun, too. This is just another example of the amazing things that are happening at Houston Elementary School!
