Principal’s Place                 

Sept. 29, 2014

This Friday, October 3, is the Fall Holiday.  There is no school on Friday.

Congratulations to our WUES Chess Team who had a glorious win, securing 1st place in the Awty International School Chess Tournament on Saturday, September 13.

Hats off to these team members:

  • Albert Ma, 4th grade - Advanced Section, Undefeated
  • Yana Sharma, 4th grade - 1st position in her section and had a perfect score
  • Brandon Shaw, 5th grade - tied for 5th place
  • Anshul Kumar Nayak, 5th grade and Alex Flores, 5th grade - 1st place team trophy. 


A big thank you to our chess coach Matthew Trujillo, for his efforts and guidance.

During afternoon pick-up, please do not park in the HISD bus loading area (between our marquee and our parking lot entrance). If you park in the head-in parking in front of the ball fields, you may be blocked in by the private daycare buses for a few minutes. They are not permitted to back up due to the danger to pedestrians.

Have a magnificent week!

John T. Threet, Principal
