|"I Pledge Allegiance..."
Fourth of July was just around the corner, so it seemed particularly fitting
to say the Pledge to the United States and the Pledge to the State of Texas, too!
Under the guidance of Gibbs PreK principal Dr. Rosa Martinez and summer program teachers Joby Burgart (of Stewart Elementary), Esmina Cardenas (of Gibbs PreK Center) and Lupe Martinez (of Scott Johnson Elementary), these students made the four block journey and spent a few hours touring the museum, checking out the historic houses and hiking around the pond.
It was the perfect break from school work, as these students are spending extra time in school to get them the additional time and attention they need to prepare for success.
|Are you coming up? Then let's go!
|Sam's mom Elizabeth Paxton Houston wore these glasses,
and we heard one of the kids say that they look like the ones Principal Martinez wears.
|Yes, Really! Somethings don't change!!
|Wow, this is cool!
|That was fun!
|Question: Why did the rooster cross the sidewalk?
|Answer: To get to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum!
|(To the tune of Bingo)
There is a state that is so great, and Texas is its name-o!!
|Let's go for a hike! Scott Johnson's Lupe Martinez heads the line.
|Turtles came out to say "hi" to our field trip!
|Stewart Elementary's Joby Burgart leads the way!
|Humble, but beautiful.
This is the Woodland Home, Sam Houston's residence from 1847-1859.
|If you haven't visited the Sam Houston Memorial Grounds in awhile, you owe it to yourself to stop by.
It is a gorgeous, historic spot in the heart of Huntsville.
