2013 NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS
The principal, Mr. Duane Barber, of Whitehouse High School announced today that CONNER M. MORRIS and JARED M. RAABE have been awarded the honor of 2013 National Merit Semifinalists.
The 2011 PSAT/NMSQT served as the initial screen of more than 1.5 million entrants to the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program. The Selection Index scores of students who met program participation requirements were used to designate a pool of about 16,000 Semifinalists on a state allocation basis. Semifinalists are the highest scorers in each of the 50 states and represent less than one percent of each state’s high school seniors. Although Semifinalist qualifying scores vary from one state to another, the scores of all Semifinalists are extremely high.

Cain Elementary students just wrapped up their unit on golf. The First Tee National School Program introduced the students to the game of golf, The First Tee Nine Core Values, and Nine Healthy Habits during their Physical Education classes. The program created an environment where young people could experience the lifelong sport of golf while learning basic golf motor skills and the inherent values of the game including healthy-enhancing habits. This is the first year for Whitehouse ISD schools to participate in The First Tee National School Program.

CAIN STUCO BEAUTIFY CAMPUS
Cain Elementary’s Student Council sponsor Micha Elliott and student council members and their families met at the school April 14 to beautify the campus. The Student Council had been granted the Keep Whitehouse Beautiful award to beautify the west side of the building, which faces Hwy. 110. The raised flower beds and flowers were added from the grant and students also cleaned the front flower bed and the PK flower bed, weeding and planting. Twenty rose bushes were planted, lantana, and rose moss. Thank you, Student Council, parents, and Mrs. Elliott.
FIRE SAFETY WEEK AT HIGGINS
In conclusion to our Fire Safety week, the Kindergarten classes at Higgins Elementary walked to the Fire Station. We were able to learn about fire safety and the tools the firemen use to fight fires. We also learned about when to call 911 and the importance of learning our address. A fun time was had by all.
The Kindergarten classes at Higgins Elementary also had Community Helper Day. This was a day where the kids could dress for what they want to be when they grow up. We talked about the different roles Community Helpers play in our community. We had a lot of firemen and doctors in our school that day!
