BROWN ELEMENTARY KEEPING WHITEHOUSE CLEAN
Brown Elementary Student Council, NEHS, and Trash Pick-up Crew all came together to help Keep Whitehouse Beautiful! On April 6, 2013, over 35 students came out to help our community pick up trash around Whitehouse! The students and volunteers had a great time and even found a lot of interesting items! We would like to say thank you to the Keep Whitehouse Beautiful Organization for organizing such an amazing and important event!
On February 28, the Gus Winston Cain Chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society inducted 38 fourth and fifth graders.
Along with other chapters in schools across the nations, the Gus W. Cain Chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, responsibility, service, and leadership. No student becomes a member simply because of good grades. The National Elementary Honor Society recognizes the total student- one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection were the following: Scholarship- 93% or better cumulative average for two semesters and Responsibility, Service and Leadership- as demonstrated by activities at home, at school, and in the community.
BROWN ELEMENTARY FIELD DAY
The night’s rain made it a little soggy at first, but Brown Elementary students and teachers had a ball at their “Let’s Have a Ball” annual field day last Thursday. Students participated in activities such as Blongoball, Pipeline, Putt-Putt, Big Ball Bowling, and, of course, the all-time favorite, Tug-of-War. Thanks to all the parents who volunteered and made it a great day for our students!
BROWN, CAIN, HIGGINS AND STANTON-SMITH ARE WINNERS IN ACADEMIC RODEO
The East Texas Fair Academic Rodeo is a competitive event that is open to public, private and home schools across the entire East Texas area. The mix of academic and fine arts contests range from individual to group opportunities and from presentation opportunities to written contests; and in return, allows children’s gifts and talents to be promoted. Whitehouse ISD Elementary schools entered six of the events: Art, Mathletics, Mindset Breaking Experience, Science Fair, Writing and Youth Fashion Show with the help of the Academic Rodeo sponsors, Keri Baskin and Ashley Whitman. Individual events such as Art, Science Fair, Writing and Youth Fashion Show required students to compete at a campus level first.
