Benavidez Elementary was selected as one of the schools to offer Summer Enrichment activities through the HISD All In! program. We are receiving special funding and resources to provide enrichment classes, during summer school, for students in 1st grade through 5th grade. This is so exciting and important especially because the students have not been able to participate in enrichment school activities and field trips due to the pandemic. Now, we are fortunate to be able to offer fun enriching programming for them to enjoy. The dates are June 17-July 8th at Benavidez!
Even if you child is not attending summer school, they can still come to Benavidez and participate in our summer enrichment program!! Please see the classes below:

Each day, families can go to any location to pick up one pre-packed breakfast and lunch meal per student. The meals are served at no cost to families.

Students new to the district may still qualify for spots available at magnet and choice programs, including Prekindergarten; please contact your school of interest, visit www.chooseHISD.com or call 713-556-6734 for more information and assistance.
