Inspiring Moments 2018-2019
Centennial Celebrations: A Year in Review
Humble ISD has been celebrating turning 100 all throughout the 2018-2019 school year. Here's a look back at some of those events.
Humble ISD: 100 Years in the Making
One hundred years ago, in February 1919, the Texas Legislature created Humble ISD. Before the creation of our district, students in the area were educated by county school districts. We are very proud to be Humble ISD, and we are celebrating our district’s history this Saturday, February 16, 2019 with an entertaining program called “Humble ISD: 100 Years in the Making.”
This “Inspiring Moment” is a collection of social media commercials we have used to promote this event, and to help share some interesting facts about Humble ISD.
January is School Board Recognition Month
The January Inspiring Moments video, “Because of You,” recognizes Humble ISD’s award winning Board of Trustees for volunteering their time to make Humble ISD a great place for students to learn, grow and succeed.
Atascocita High School Strolling Strings
The Atascocita High School Strolling Strings treated everyone at the December Board of Trustees meeting to a live performance.
Movement Correlates to Strong Learning
This month's Inspiring Moments video shows classrooms and programs that focus on kinesthetic learning - purposeful movement designed to reinforce cognitive connections - throughout Humble ISD.
Big Heroes, Tiny Homes
Students Helping Veterans: Big Heroes, Tiny Homes is a collaborative initiative between Kingwood Park High School and Summer Creek High School in Humble ISD. Students from these schools are taking on a seemingly impossible challenge... homelessness. Specifically, they are wanting to create a community for homeless Veterans. They have presented their ideas with the Mayor of Humble and the Mayor of Houston, and are well on their way to building their first home, but are looking to partner with businesses and non-profits to make this a sustainable solution. For more information and to support this initiative, please visit: https://www.humbleisd.net/studentshelpingveterans.
I am Humble
Humble ISD is Family and it extends beyond the walls of the schools right into the community. This Inspiring Moments video shows images of this year’s convocation celebration and the Centennial Kick-Off Celebration, as well as testimonies as to how Humble ISD helps make our community “home.”
Humble ISD's 100 Year Kick Off
Prior to the existence of the Humble Independent School District, students were educated by Harris County Common School Districts No. 28, 35, and 50. In February 1919, the Texas Legislature created Humble ISD. There were 1,435 students in Humble ISD during the 1918-1919 school year. During the 2018-2019 school year, our schools will educate approximately 43,000 students. The start of a new school year is always exciting. But the 2018-2019 year is especially exciting because it is our Centennial Celebration Year! A year long celebration kicks off with a free community event on Saturday, August 25, from 6 to 10 p.m.
Power of Possibilities
More than 7,000 seats were filled in this summer's "Power of Possibilities," a tremendous series of training sessions geared toward inspiring teachers to imagine new and exciting ways to engage students in exploring, creating and learning.
