March PTO Meeting – Guest Speakers

Please join us for our March PTO meeting on Thursday, March 12. Following a brief business meeting at 8:30, we will have a presentation and Q&A session with representatives from HSPVA and Carnegie Vanguard HS. These specialty, lower-enrollment magnet schools (fine arts and Vanguard) are great representatives of some of the diversity of programs on offer in HISD.

We had a great session last month with DeBakey and Energy and we thank both Agnes Perez, Principal of Debakey, and Lori Lambropoulos, Principal of the Energy Institute, for their information and time. 8th grade parents were able to get some important last-minute questions answered and 6th and 7th grade parents were able to begin the process of planning for high school.

Please mark your calendars for April 9, 2015 as Bellaire and Lamar will join us (one day before decisions are due!). Learn about these great comprehensive high schools both of which have robust magnet programs as well.

All PTO meetings are the second Thursday at 8:30 am in the DLL (back of the library).

Flip Flop Fiesta – Thank you to our volunteers!

Flip Flops Logo 2A huge Charger thanks to our Flip Flop Fiesta chairs, Suzanne Rose and Andy Chan. This dynamic duo, along with their committee and volunteers, have been working hard for a year to coordinate this event. Their tireless dedication resulted in a fantastically fun (if slightly frigid) beach bash! We’re still tallying the final total of funds raised, but thank you to everyone who supported the event through attending, donating, or volunteering. However, the PTO board would like to single out Andy and Suzanne (and their families) for special recognition for such an amazing job on a debut event. Their dedication and devotion to helping POMS through this event will directly benefit thousands of kids. You two truly are our shining stars! Thank you!
