Lovett Elementary Takes First Place in Art Car Parade
Lovett Elementary art students saw their hard work pay off when their art car entry, “OWL”ways a Good TIME, beat forty-nine other entries to take First Place in the 2015 Orange Show Art Car Parade Youth Group Division on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Lovett students began collecting clocks and watches from their families and members of the community in September of last year. A generous donation from the San Jacinto Chapter of National Association of Clock and Watch Collectors ensured students have would enough pieces to complete the project as envisioned by Lovett Elementary’s art teacher, Rickey Polidore, Jr.
Lovett Students Skype with Middle Grade Author
A lucky group of fourth graders had the experience of a lifetime when they participated in a Skype call with Ingrid Law, author of middle grade books Savvy and Scumble. Law answered questions from the students about the writing process, where she gets inspiration for her stories, and how her life changed after her first published book. She also gave a few teasers to her upcoming book Switch due out in September 2015.

On Thursday March 5th, Lovett’s 3rd – 5th Grade Name That Book Team defeated several other Houston ISD schools during preliminaries, thereby qualifying for the final round the following day at the Hattie Mae White Professional Building. Despite being down by as many as three points during the first half of the final competition, the Lovett team rallied and found themselves in a three-way tie for second place. The Lovett team hung through two tie-breakers and ended up taking third place in the finals. We are all very proud of the seven children who spent countless hours reading over thirty books in order to represent Lovett Elementary during Name That Book.
Lovett Donates to Zero2A Hundred Foundation
Lovett Elementary donated $10,000 to the Zero 2A Hero Foundation, a charity run by retired Houston police officer Jason Ray. Students raised the money through their participation in the Jog-a-thon held earlier in the school year.
