WE GIVE OUR KIDS THE WORLD
Lisa Ghrayyeb-Hartman, Evans International Elementary School counselor, meets with the Neonatal Intensive Care staff at Penrose-St. Francis Hospital, Nov. 15. EIES staff members delivered donated items collected by third grade students to the hospital while students watched via a live video call.
Seventeen D49 teachers received accolades from principals, and recommendations from students and parents to prompt selection as their school’s Teacher of the Year.
Nearly 400 fourth and fifth-graders from 10 schools across D49 participated at the all-district track meet May 17 at Falcon High School. Students were gathered together to practice physical education skills learned throughout the year and to experience competition.
Evans International Elementary School students had a unique look into an astronaut’s life at a school wide assembly, March 2. Duane “Digger” Carey, NASA astronaut and Lieutenant Colonel, USAF retired, presented a video to students explaining an astronaut’s life in space.
Sandi Esparsen, Falcon Education Foundation secretary, receives a plaque of appreciation from District 49 Board of Education President Nov. 9 after awarding just under $31,000 to educators across District 49 for innovative and unique learning opportunities.
"Each grade level adopts an organization in the community and gives donations to it as part of our International Baccaleaureate action to the community," said Lisa Hartman, counselor at EIES. "The idea is so show these organizations that we see what they do in the community, we appreciate them, and we recognize the importance that they make."
Touched by images and stories of struggle and loss in the Houston area after Hurricane Harvey, third-graders at Evans International Elementary School in District 49 organized a fundraiser to help.
