Ensuring that our students have a happy holiday season gives them the ability to focus on their classwork. “It spares our students the added stress of wondering if they’ll have gifts to open or even food on the table for a holiday dinner,” Matt Smith, Coordinator of Elementary Counseling and Behavioral Services for Humble ISD, said.

Healthy Tips from Coach Bearden

"Regular exercise has lots of health benefits for children and young people, such as improving fitness, improving academic scores, increasing concentration, providing opportunities to socialize, building a stronger heart, bones, and healthier muscles, encouraging healthy growth and development, and improving self-esteem. Keeping it fun and encouraging your child to find activities and exercises that they enjoy which will help them stick to it. Some fun examples are bike riding, walking the family dog, martial arts, swimming, rollerblading, playing a sport, or running. Have fun!"
