Many people have been inspired by a Houston-area man who paid off students’ overdue #lunch accounts. We’ve received several questions asking how something similar can be done at HISD schools. Please contact a school directly if you’d like to make a #donation.

Amari Venzor of Cornelius Elementary School took home top honors in the 18th annual Martin Luther King Jr. #Oratory #Competition sponsored by Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP in Houston.

Every year since 1996, fourth- and fifth-graders from two dozen HISD schools have competed in this annual contest, which challenges students to write and present a short original speech on a subject related to the slain civil rights leader. The topic this year was, “If Dr. King were speaking at a March on Washington today, what would he say?”

There is a ton of FREE money available to students to help them pay for college! There are all sorts of scholarships out there, but the government is by far the largest provider of student financial aid. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) program gives students access to $150 billion in grants, loans and work-study funds made available by the federal government.

Ok people now days these kids are not discipline are have respect for anything these parents are not teaching the kids and want to school to do it all. The school system is not to teach your kids how to act in public. Discipline starts at home school or to teach reading writing. A police on hand is need. It's not just an HiSD it is all school districts.
