Rice University has chosen 21 HISD juniors and seniors to attend the 2015 Rice Summer Business Institute (RSBI).
2015 is finally here and we are about to embark on something only a few schools in the nation have done so far. We are about to Power UP! Each one of you will get a laptop and our digital learning will change our classrooms, how we deliver instruction and how we communicate and interact in every class. Teachers have been training since the summer and now you will also be a part of the next step in 21st century learning. I am not saying it will be a breeze, all change come with its challenges, but we are in this together and here to help each other as we learn and grow together.
The opportunity to do this has been made available to us not only by HISD, but by our alumni and community members who have helped by providing donations to help us reach our goal to get every student get a laptop this spring. Thank you, thank you, thank you to every one of you who are dreaming with us as we start this journey.
Great things are happening at JDHS and I can’t tell you what a joy it is to be your principal!
Let’s make this year the BEST yet,
