From The Principal's Desk

Dear Houston Families,

If you would like more information about the 2019 Summer Camps for future Tigers at Conroe High see the link below:

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!


If your child has an unpaid balance on their lunch account, it must be paid by May 20th. After that date, your child will receive an alternate lunch.

Wow, the end of the school year is near! We've all worked so hard, and I am so thankful for our increase in parental involvement this school year. This school year has proven that when parents and school staff work together, our students are better equipped for success. Thank you all so much for your support! Please encourage your student to attend school everyday and continue working hard until the very end. We appreciate your continued support!
