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.

No Place for Hate Door Decorating Contest
During the week of February 9 - 13, Lovett Elementary
students and faculty celebrated our No Place For Hate campaign. Everyone showed
their support by wearing super hero shirts, crazy hair, jeans, Lovett attire,
and neon colors. The week culminated
with a door decorating contest to highlight Lovett’s commitment to end
bullying. We celebrate No Place For Hate
on our campus daily, but this week was a wonderful way to showcase our
commitment to being a No Place For Hate campus.
