HMS Counseling News
Forest Brook Middle School
Many of Houston area schools were severely damaged from the storm; some will be completely demolished. Forest Brook Middle School is one of Houston ISD hardest hit campuses. Students and teachers lost their homes and personal belongings. At this time, many of the students need uniforms, supplies and the teachers need gift cards to replenish supplies for their classrooms. We are asking Highland Hawks to donate and help our fellow Texans.
Walmart gift cards can help students and teachers replace their uniforms and classroom supplies.
Most of the students from this school lost all of their personal items such as their back packs.
If you prefer to donate supplies, we are collecting notebooks, loose leaf paper, composition books, pens, pencils, and markers.
Character Education Program
What is Lions Quest? Each week HMS students and teachers participate in a Lions Quest lesson and activity. Through these lessons students learn positive social skills to apply in their lives. Below is information from the Lions Quest web site. Please click on the link and find out more information about The Lions organization and Lions Quest.
Since 1917, Lions Clubs International has embraced the dream of its founder, Melvin Jones, and worked for the betterment of local communities and the world at large. Whether responding when disaster strikes, helping the disabled face obstacles and challenges, or providing children with a safe and healthy learning environment, Lions Clubs International members are there to serve.
It is this dedication and commitment to service that has made Lions Clubs International the world’s largest service organization with 1.35 million members in 208 countries and geographic areas.
More than 30 years ago, Lions embraced the idea of comprehensive youth development to help children grow in a positive direction, free from the dangers of drugs and violence and able to make positive decisions. Lions made a commitment to further the development of the Lions Quest program, and continue to support the program financially and with volunteer labor throughout the world.
We are a Renaissance School
We recently sent 30 students to a Renaissance rally to train and learn how to create an environment of respect, recognize, reward, reinforce and produce results. These students will organize a school wide renaissance day that all students will participate and learn together how to change a climate of a school.
