Read with Santa

Santa will visit High Point Elementary on December 8th to read the children a very special Christmas story. Children may deliver their Santa letters to Santa and also take a picture with him! A letter was sent home with the children on November 29th explaining the letter deadlines and a template was provided. Please return the letters by Dec. 6 to allow time for the Navasota Examiner to select a few letters to be featured in a special holiday publication.

Spelling Bee

Please join us for our local High Point Elementary Spelling Bees. The children have been practicing and preparing for the big event. Parents are welcome to join us each day at 8:00 am in the gym to watch the competitions. We wish them all the best of luck!
