HOUSTON – Houston Lower Elementary School presented its final assembly, “HLES is on a Safari for Success,” featuring a total of four homerooms in kindergarten to second grade.
Special class teachers, Emily Peel, Christy Watkins and Ann Weaver created and directed these shows, which displayed students’ talents and increased their skills in public speaking and performance.
“As a parent of a kindergarten student at this school, I appreciate the special class teachers’ creativity and hard work to put on these programs,” said Crystel Ellison, HLES school counselor and parent. “I am thankful for all the ones, past and present, who have used their talents to create memorable programs for our children.”
Students from Kelli Koon’s, Marsha Rimmer’s, June Kirby’s and Patricia Collins’ homerooms performed.
Lisa Johnson volunteered her time by playing the piano for all three programs and the other special class teachers helped out by watching the remaining classes.
First and second graders performed jungle-themed songs and chants. Kindergarten students showcased the skills and information they have learned this year.
