Morgan Egg Hatching


Mrs. Markello’s kindergarten class at Morgan Elementary School of Science and Engineering is learning about the egg hatching process up close this year!

As part of their science class, her students have been studying topics like living and nonliving things, what plants and animals need, and plant and animal classification.

“We enjoy studying life cycles as well, and have raised a queen butterfly and a monarch butterfly in class,” said Mrs. Markello. “I decided to go ahead and hatch chicks with the kids. My mother was a teacher for 30 years and did this with her kiddos a lot, so it is special to me. This is my first year in kindergarten and I am in love!”

The Mechanics: Ball High Grads Roy & Raul Beltran


In 2013, the Beltran family moved to Galveston from California. Roy was a sophomore at Ball High School and his younger brother Raul would become a freshman the next year. Now the brothers are gainfully employed as mechanics with Galveston ISD and they owe their success directly to the experience they had in the same school district they now work for.
