Summer is Coming!

I can't believe this is my last newsletter of the year. Your families have been an ongoing blessing to me and my staff. We are thrilled with the progress they've made and will miss them!

May is the busiest month of the year so please take a close look at the events we have going on. We hope you are able to join us for some of them!


Thank you for allowing us the privilege of educating your children!

Summer Reading Program is Back!

This will be the 2nd summer of our City Summer Reading Program! This year all summer reading events will be held at North Elementary on Tuesday mornings. The library will also be open for books to be checked out on this day. Any elementary student who is an HISD student will be able to check out books (North and East students). More information will be coming soon! We would love to see you and your children on these days!
