In an effort to help schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey, our school has adopted two schools in the Houston area in order to assist them with their recovery efforts.  The two schools are C.E. King High School and Dean Middle School.  Both schools are in need of basic materials such as school supplies, toiletries, and clothing.  Gift cards will also be helpful.  Collection bins have been set up in the middle school and high school offices.  Please donate what you can in order to assist the students and teachers of our adopted schools.  If you are donating a gift card, please give the card directly to one of the administrative assistants in either the middle school or high school office.




In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month here is your fact for today: Mario Molina grew up in Mexico loving science. His aunt, who was a chemist, used to make up experiments for him and he was soon doing projects that rivaled university work. Molina is most known for his Nobel Prize winning work in understanding how the ozone layer is formed and depleted—particularly by CFCs; this crucial work in chemistry had a profound impact on our environment.


Today’s lunch is turkey bagel sandwich or sandwich bar.
