Spring Meadows Hosts Mother/Daughter Spa Night

Spring Meadows Elementary held its annual Mother/Daughter Spa Night. All girl students and their moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters, and even female friends enjoyed each other’s company while they pampered themselves, doing each other’s hair, make up and nails. Definately a fun and relaxing night for all.

Hopkins ES Creates Way Station For Flying Royalty

 

As a part of an end of the year service project, the Hopkins Elementary School Student Council created a resting and feeding spot for Monarch butterflies.  They did this with the help of H.E.B. and Monarch Watch by planting milkweed and other butterfly friendly plants. It’s created sort of a way station for these beautiful creatures to make their annual trip back and forth across North America.

   

The plants provide the food for Monarchs to reproduce and survive the changing of the seasons that initiate their migration. Meanwhile, the butterflies serve as great cross pollinators. This has been a great science project for the students as they piece together how parts of nature dovetail together in harmony with each other.

Literacy Mentors Help Make A Difference

Research indicates that adults who mentor children reduce the dropout rate and can increase a student's academic performance. Knowing this, several central office staff signed up this semester to serve as a Literacy Mentor of Distinction. JISD Counselors worked collaboratively with department secretary, Ms Y. Romero to identify students in grades K-2 who could use a literacy mentor. Each week, mentors gave up a bit of their lunch time to read with their mentee, in an effort to promote literacy and establish a positive relationship with a child. In appreciation for the semester work, a special luncheon was provided for mentees, mentors and counselors. Superintendent Dr. Montoya joined the celebration, thanking everyone for their positive contributions. Although the lunch and festivities were enjoyable, the biggest highlight for the students was touring the Educational Resource Center. Special thanks to Ms. Stamper from Scholastic Books for the literature donation.
