Additional testing will be needed to determine the child’s educational needs. Parents must provide permission to administer ability and achievement tests and must also complete a questionnaire.

4TH GRADE ROUNDUP AT HIGGINS ELEMENTARY
On May 17 Higgins hosted the 4th Grade annual Roundup Day. This included all the fourth graders from Whitehouse ISD. We had many people come from our community to donate a day for our young students.
There were multiple stations that the students visited on this day. We had a fire pit going where the kids branded a big “W” onto a piece of wood. We had horses to pet, archery, butter churning, a group of ladies playing dulcimers and other instruments, line dancing, story telling, square dancing, zoo entertainment, horseshoes, the bee man, picture frame making, pictures taken, game playing and roping.
As always, we could not have made this happen if we did not have many volunteers to run the stations. We want to extend a Texas sized thank you to all the many volunteers that gave us a day filled with fun. Higgins looks forward to hosting this event next year in 2014.
BROWN ELEMENTARY KEEPS PEOPLE WARM
Each year during October the “Coats for Kids” campaign kicks off in our community in an effort to provide people with much needed coats for the winter months. The Brown Elementary Student Council took up coats on our campus to be donated to P.A.T.H. Our students really came through! The Student Council collected a total of 111 coats this year from our “Small and Mighty” campus! Students were proud to contribute to our community and to know that they were able to help others. Way to go Brown Elementary!
