If you would like to order a Field Day T-shirt, be sure to submit your order by March 13th. Field Day T-shirts ordered from the school may be used during Field Day but also as a Wilson Uniform Spirit Shirt.

Field Day T-shirts are available for the whole family (child and adult sizes for your convenience).

You may also send a white cotton T-shirt for your child to tie-dye; however, your child will only be able to wear it on Field Day.

Important Dates:

Friday, March 13th: T-shirt orders due in the front office.

Week of April 6 - 10: Tie-Dye Week. Find out when your child has art class and send him/her with an old uniform that day (there will be a lot of tie-dye paint involved!)

Friday, April 24th: Field Day 2015. Wear your tie-dye T-shirt!

Friends of Montessori (FOM)FOM.jpg

Have you heard about FOM? The Friends of Montessori is a great non-profit  organization that cares for all the public Montessori schools in HISD! Since 1994, this all-volunteer group has worked with HISD to create and grow the public Montessori programs in Houston, organizing thousands of volunteers and raising more than $1 Million.

FOM advocates for authenticity in HISD Montessori programs by educating and consulting with policymakers, administrators and parents -- all to insure that the effective whole-child educational philosophy of Montessori benefits a diverse cross-section of Houston children and their families.

As a parent of a Montessori student in the Houston Independent School District, you, too, are Friends of Montessori!
