Dr. Horton, Central Office staff, and school administrators hosted a MEET THE SUPERINTENDENT session at every school during the last five weeks to gather information from parents and community. The four questions What is working?, What are your ideas or suggestions for improvement?, What are your dreams for the future?, and What can I do? were posed to each audience and the similarities were astonishing.
Houston ElementaryThe meetings varied in size, but no matter how many were in attendance, the concern for the students and the schools was apparent.

On this Veteran's Day, a remembrance to those who paid the ultimate price to preserve the freedom we all enjoy.
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze
A young soldier saluted it, and then
He stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers' tears?
How many Pilots' planes shot down?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No Freedom is not free
I heard the sound of taps one night,
When everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That taps had meant "Amen"
When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in
No Freedom isn't free!
Kelly Strong, 1981

Grading is an important component of any school subject. Grades let students know how well they have mastered skills and serve as a valuable communication tool for parents. Grades also let teachers know how well they have taught those skills. The National Association of Elementary School Principals has some tips designed to help parents get the maximum benefit from grades. You can read that "Report to Parents" by clicking here.
