Eat Breakfast at School!
Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.
Breakfast at school is free, so help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
Notice to Parents with Court Orders Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship
Welcome back to school! I say "welcome back" to parents because each new year brings new responsibilities and tasks for parents. You are a big part of student success!
This year our character theme is S.O.A.R. Each letter represents a character trait that we will teach and highlight this year. The traits are self-control, optimism, acceptance, and responsibility.
I look forward to partnering with you so that we can help your child soar!

Read for a Better LIfe
Please join us on September 18, 2019 as we kick off our Read for a Better Life initiative. We believe that reading aloud to children has a huge impact on their success in school, and we are asking you to help support this mission by being a Guest Reader at Sam Houston Elementary School. By participating in this event, you will be providing a wonderful and memorable experience for our students as you model your love of reading and your enthusiasm for books.
If you are able to share in our celebration, please contact your child's teacher to schedule a time that works best for you. On the day of the event, feel free to bring your favorite book or you can also visit our library to choose one. Our librarian, Catherine Pells, will have a selection of books reserved which are proven story time favorites.
Thank you in advance for ensuring our students’ success, and we are looking forward to having you on our campus as a Guest Reader.

Third Grade is happy to have your students in our classrooms!
We have started the school year moving full steam ahead. Our literacy assessments have begun, they will give us a good guideline to better help our kids. In Reading we are discussing the plot elements of a story, as well as the sequence of events found in it.
Please encourage your students to read everyday at home!
In Math, we have introduced different graphs and tables, and we are discovering representations of 5-digit numbers. Number sense and Place Value are a good foundation for the school year.
