• Warm Thoughts and Winter Wishes

    Celebrate, encourage, and inspire Houston ISD teachers and staff by sharing warm thoughts for the winter.
  • Despite the challenges of 2020, teachers and staff continue to provide unending support to HISD students every day.  We are asking our community to celebrate, encourage and inspire HISD staff by sharing warm thoughts this winter!

    The Warm Thoughts and Winter Wishers campaign allows community volunteers (either solo or as part of a group) to create a personalized greeting card to share appreciation for HISD staff members.
