  • The PTO Nominating Committee is now accepting nominations for PTO Board positions for the 2015-2016 school year.  Our goal is to see that every parent has a voice on our PTO and is given the chance to become actively involved in enriching the educational opportunities at Askew.  You may nominate as many candidates as you choose; however, you must use a separate form for each recommendation. Self-nomination is encouraged. Nominations are due Monday, April 13th.  Thank you for supporting our PTO!

  • Askew will host Career Day on 
    Friday, May 15, 2015.

    As we prepare our scholars to achieve at high levels, we want them to be exposed to the many career opportunities available.  Please contact Mrs. Washington (, our school counselor, if you would like to participate by speaking on your career to four small groups of students, including time for Q&A. 
    Students will rotate into the different classrooms where the presenters will be setup.  For this age group, props or visual aids work best, ranging from Powerpoint presentations, pictures, or actual items used to perform duties.  As we get closer to the event, Mrs. Washington will send communication about how the day will progress.

  • March is National Read Aloud Month, and HISD is teaming up with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation to raise awareness among our families about the importance of reading aloud to children each and every day.

    Reading aloud, for 15 minutes a day, is critically important during a child’s earliest years of life, and the benefits of reading aloud through the elementary years has been shown to instill a love of reading. In a recent study, researchers found that not only does reading aloud throughout elementary school years expose children to more complex words or stories than when they read alone, but they are also more likely to read more books independently in later years.
