Principal’s Place Our school Spelling Bee Champion, 3rd Grade student Evelyn Carpenter, took 3rd place in the HISD Area Spelling Bee. Evelyn competed against students from 45 elementary and middle schools last week. Way to go, Evelyn!
If you have incoming Kindergarten children or have friends or neighbors within our school zone who have children this age, please attend our Kindergarten Roundup next Thursday, February 26 at 9:30 a.m. in the Cafeteria. We will begin registration for new students for 2015-2016 on Monday, March 2.
Please see a full-page letter from me on Page 3 concerning the HISD proposal to reduce overcrowding in West U, Twain, and Roberts Elementary Schools.
I received a wonderful email message from the Houston Museum of Natural Science concerning the field trip our 4th graders took last Wednesday, February 13. The message reads: “Today, we had your 4th graders visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science. They were wonderful! Yours was the kind of group that keeps us volunteers coming back each day! After the tours, I heard the docents say: knowledgeable, interested, curious, well behaved, excited, etc. All the adjectives you would like to hear! I would like to congratulate the 4th graders! I would also like to congratulate the teachers and staff members of West U Elementary! I know your job is a hard one, but thank you all for working so hard and doing it so well!” Great job, 4th graders!
Have a glorious week!
John T. Threet, Principal
