Principal's Message


November 2017


Dear Families,


The School Community Council has decided to sponsor a fundraiser for the Pearland Independent School District Foundation in Pearland, Texas.  This is one of the school districts that was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey last summer.


We are hoping to collect pennies in the rotunda starting this week.  If you have any pennies lying around, please send them to school.  Our students can put the pennies in the appropriate jug (there is one for every grade level) and there will be a friendly competition between the grade levels.


We are also collecting school supplies.  If there is something new that you would like to send like pencils, markers, books, notebooks, etc., these types of things would be greatly appreciated. 


Once we have collected for the Texas school district, we will have students write notes and cards to include. 


The goal of this project is to help our students think about their place in the world and how important it is to give back to the community-at-large.  Tragedy can strike anyone anywhere, and we need to build empathy for those who are struggling.  The School Community Council is hoping that this project will build student awareness of what is going on in the country and world and how one individual can make a difference. 


Thanks for your support.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us at 801-974-8310. 




James Martin and Ronald Urbin, Your Principals
