We would like to invite you to join us in raising funds for Wreaths Across America-Houston, an organization that really deserves our support. Raising money to place a live Maine wreath upon all of the almost 70,000 fallen hero’s gravesites at the Houston National Cemetery is a truly humbling experience. We are proud to do our part to help.
Wreaths are only $15.00 each and it includes all shipping and handling. They are fully tax deductible too!
The national Wreaths Across America office has approved that non-profit groups can sell wreaths for $15.00 and $5.00 of those dollars will be rebated for their own internal fundraiser.
Why choose this fundraiser?
- There is no product shipped to you
- You have no product to deliver
- There is no product to spoil or go bad
Click HERE to go to our own fundraising page and then click the Donate Now link just above the thermometer to donate for wreaths.

Costa Rica Trip 2018
In June 2018, a group of DeBakey students will have the opportunity to participate on a trip of a life-time to Costa Rica. There is limited space with only 10 spots available on a first-come, first-served basis for this opportunity. We are holding a meeting for those who are interested in learning more about this awesome opportunity.
In conjunction with EF Educational Tours, Mrs. Sukhu will be taking a group of students on a 9-day excursion to see Costa Rica. EF Tours, in business for over 50 years, is the world leader in international education with more than 1 million students traveling with their programs each year.
About the tour: The deeper you go into Costa Rica’s rainforests, the more engaged all your senses become. Arenal Volcano towering over the trees below is a sight you’ll never forget, while the unmistakable sound of howler monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park will echo for years. Feeling the mist in your face as you zip line through the Santa Elena Cloud Forest is as memorable as the ride itself. And the smell of tropical flowers is just as beautiful as the taste of the fruit.
I am hosting my informational meeting on Tuesday, October 17th at 6pm in room 408 at DeBakey to answer all of your questions. Interested parents and students should plan to attend in order to receive important information on the trip itinerary, cost, and trip dates. I sincerely hope you will come and learn more!
If you plan to attend, please RSVP by going to https://goo.gl/forms/dPceSVRsytRxY9eW2
The informational meeting to hear more about this amazing trip to Costa Rica will be on Tuesday, October 17th at 6pm in room 408. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions! Hope to see you there! – T. Sukhu

11th graders are having their mock-PSAT test this Saturday in the atrium from 8:30-11:30. Parents are requested to drop off their children before 8:30 and pick them up at 11:30. Since the test will be in the atrium area, there isn’t a place for parents to wait for the children inside the building. Thanks for your cooperation.
