Our Vision

We at Sam Houston Elementary aim to develop creative problem solvers, academic scholars, resilient learners, global citizens, and compassionate collaborators who work together to build a better future.

From Principal Cavazos

Welcome to Back to School!

We hope you and your family had a restful and safe summer! It is time for back to school! We have a great year planned for your child and we cannot wait to see them!

Our doors will open at 7 am each morning to begin receiving students. Breakfast is served from 7-7:25 a.m. each morning.

It is important that your child arrives on time to school each day. Our instruction begins at 7:35 a.m. The end of our instructional day is at 3:15 p.m.

We look forward to a safe and productive school year for your child! Should you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at the school. We will be glad to help!
