accelerated reader 

Houston Upper Elementary School is excited about reading this year. We like to encourage our young readers to read often. Reading builds fluency, vocabulary, and background knowledge. As an incentive to promote independent reading, HUES held a competition to see which classroom in each grade could acquire the most AR points in a five week period. The results were amazing! Our school collectively acquired approximately 2000 AR points in a five week time frame. It is obvious how much our students love to read!The winning homerooms with the highest AR score totals were rewarded with extra recess time and their homeroom teachers were given $50 each to spend on library books for their classrooms. Ms. Madison Vail’s 5th grade homeroom won with 186.1 AR points. Mrs. Tate’s 4th grade homeroom won with 191.0 AR points, and Ms.Victoria Fuqua’s 3 rd grade homeroom won with 177.1 AR points. This reading incentive was a huge success, and we look forward to the next one. HUES, were every student matters and every moment counts!

Beta service project

Houston Upper Elementary’s Jr. Beta club members collected and transported water to the Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Department as the first of several service projects for the 2022-2023 school year. These service projects benefit their local community as well as other communities across our nation. Service to others is one of the most important characteristics of National Beta membership. The motto, “Let Us Lead By Serving Others,”  states the philosophy upon which National Beta was founded. HUES Jr. Beta Sponsors would like to thank those who so generously contributed bottled water to make this project a success.
